Summertime Mantel

Howdy friends!  I have been putting off getting out my Summertime Mantel decor for much too long now.  Not because I don't enjoy it, but because I didn't LOVE what I had last year - so what to do.... Make something new!  of. course.  I am love, love, loving chevron patterns right now - and the yellow/gray color combo.  So I just happened to receive some cool stuff in my monthly Scraproom kit this month (well, okay I receive really cool stuff EVERY month - but this was what I needed for my mantel!!!).  Hi-ho, hi-ho its off to work I go!

Here is what I created!!!

Oh, this bottle happens to be a really EASY project!  I had an empty wine bottle that was yellow AND I found this grey chevron fabric at Hobby Lobby (which was a total buy on the whim, daughter sayin' "WHY do you need to buy that?" me responding - "cuz I like it" kind of find!).  Happy dance!  I just wrapped a piece around it, tied some twine and made a sunburst flower out of paper.  Cute, no?

Oh, and after looking at the mantel for a few days, I decided to add something else - but I don't have a photo of it yet.  I'll be back to share that later, m'kay?!
