White Pumpkins & Pinecones…


Since first posting about my Fall Mantel here…I decided to change it up after finally finding some white mini pumpkins at the market.

I love the look of mixing White Pumpkins & Pinecones…

I found the above stems called Broomcorn at my local Trader Joe’s. Even though I now have one kid away in college, and one gone all day in high school, I seem to always have my other “helper” close at hand…

Curious?

If you can’t find larger white pumpkins in your area…you can simply paint an orange one with white chalk paint like I did…

Since I had a few mini white pumpkins and pinecones left over…I added them to a vase and placed them in the guest bath.

Add a few twigs from the yard and a birch wrapped candle and you’re done!

  7. Can you tell me how tall those lanterns are on your hearth? I am looking for some for mine and its hard to tell what would be a good height and yours look great!
