Look at this pretty book pages pumpkin painting that’s the focus of my fall decor!
This year I decided that I wanted to stay away from orange pumpkins for my fall decor and keep everything in neutral colors. I absolutely love the result.
Book Pages Pumpkin Painting
I grabbed a lot of decorating items from my house that are white, off-white, and brown, and shopped for a few new items. I love the result.
As you can see, I added a table runner to the top of the mantel.
The focal point of this neutral fall mantel is the large art piece of a pumpkin made out of vintage book pages.
I wanted a large picture of a pumpkin on the mantel but couldn’t find one in a neutral color. Plus, buying seasonal or large art can be very pricey. Thankfully, I told my friend Kelly about it.
She’s a talented artist and we brainstormed about making our own, big art piece that would make a statement.
We came up with using Mod Podge and one of my many vintage books to make it.
Kelly made this art piece in just two days for me! It came out even better than I could have imagined. What do you think? Isn’t it beautiful? She should make more of these – I bet they would sell fast.
Another new item I love? I scored this vintage sunburst clock the other day at Goodwill for just $15.
I discovered those brown pumpkins made out of twigs for $3 in the dollar aisle at Target. They pair well with my brown vintage glass bottles.
This $7 owl is new as well, from Home Goods.
This is my perfect reading spot to relax with a tea in front of the fireplace.
Oh, and finding the white scale was a total coincidence. My friend Lynn had it in her booth at the Newburgh Vintage Emporium and took a picture of it for her Facebook page, and I remember noticing it then.
I decided I just had to have it to add to the mantel. So the last time I went by there, I was able to buy it. I was so glad it was still available.
This wooden bucket usually has a different spot in the living room, but it looks so nice in front of the fireplace with books.
What do you think about decorating for fall with neutral colors instead of orange or red?
