Happy October friends! Can you believe its already October?? Where has the time gone?! I am so excited to share this mantel with you now that October is finally here. It’s all based around a lovely October sign that I picked up from Oh Sweet Skye recently & I’m mildly obsessed with how it made this October mantel look.
Switching up parts of your mantel is a great way to change things up in your home. I wanted to show you guys that you don’t have to completely re-do your mantel to create a new look. You can have parts of your mantel that are staples and switch out other elements for the seasons. In a mantel, you always want to create layers and when you switch out items you keep the same parts of the layers. You guys saw this same mantel [HERE] as my “fallo-ween” mantel. Something as simple as switching out the moon & the Halloween sign for my new October sign gave this a whole new look & brought it from “fall-tween” to fall in an instant. I kept the candlesticks and garland [my staple items] and turned this Halloween mantel into a fall mantel.
I absolutely loved Anne of Green Gables growing up, when I saw this sign from Oh Sweet Skye I knew I had to have it! My favorite thing about Oh Sweet Skye is that you can customize all different parts of your sign. For their signs you are able to choose the frame, the background color, the word color, and optional add ons. For this sign I choose an olive background, white words, light stain frame, and whitewash add on! I love how this combination makes it look like a vintage chalkboard which fits in perfectly to our cozy cottage farmhouse living room.
I hope this shows you guys how easy it can be to change out parts of your mantel for the holidays! Create a set layout you like and choose which items make the layers in your mantel. Simply switch out parts of your layers for more seasonal items and replace them with the originals when the season is over! Thank you guys so much for visiting the blog today and every day.
