Simple Fall Mantel

Happy October my friends, family, and fellow bloggers!
I know all I seem to blog about these days are mantels, but to be honest with you it's 
   hard work to blog. I have an appreciation for those of  you who blog FULL time. 
YOU ROCK...plain and simple!
  My poor mantel has been sitting empty for most of the summer. What do you do? With Fall 
already here I stalked Pinterest for ideas and came up with some creative ideas of my own.   
The only thing I spent any money on were the feathers and they were $3.00. The autumn art I found on Pinterest and is found here. Easy art, print it and frame it. The sticks are from my Mom's garden. They are the stems of pampus grass that we cut down together. Kinda sentimental to me. Now I decorate with them. Texture!
The leaf in the picture is from our back yard. I took the picture and framed it. Are you seeing a trend here? I'm really not lazy, it just needs to be simple. Another easy, peasy idea are the hurricane looking candle holders. They're from the Dollar Tree friends. The top vase is attached to the candle holder underneath it. A $4.00 investment and they can be used anywhere in your home. 
My Fall mantel came together quickly and I think it turned out great. 
Do you like to change up your mantel for each season or would you rather
decorate it and leave it alone?
