"Verse" Inspired Fall Mantle

How can a Bible verse inspire a FALL MANTLE?

Psalm 120:5-6 sowing and reaping

and HARVEST was born - so I went with it.  It is a good word for the FALL season and it will take me right through Thanksgiving.

 { HERE'S WHAT I DID }

~ I tried bringing the verse to LIFE - put some skin on it if you will ~

~ bring nature inside...organic and earthy ~

~DETAILS I used  things I had around the house, filled them, tied them, mod podged them  and painted them~

Keep going until it "feels" right

I knew I wanted aged character and I did that by painting the fireplace mantle, hanging an old window over the insert { to somewhat hide it :}  I added FALL foilage...one of the twigs I collected while on my morning jog!
Candles, ribbon, twine, old books, mason jars, wire, pumpkins, cinnamon sticks all add to the story.
I mod podged a piece of plywood we cut to fit the insert with an old farmers almanac and then stamped the words family and Gather and a bird.
I typed the verse and mod podged it then I glazed over the whole thing.
I made the little wreath with wire and a deconstructed vine.
Unfortunately ~ I could not get rid of the speakers or tv
BUT
the vases { which I got for 4.00 ea. on clearance at JoAnn's and I sprayed them black ~ They were copper}
kind of hide
the two side speakers.
Does any other woman deal with the TV issue...lol??

I made the HARVEST sign and the the OOPS! funny which you can see HERE.

Hope you ENJOY!
