Autumnal Mantel | Gourds, Candles and Bottles
Photo/Art by Francine Zaslow

Find bottle gourds at Michael’s, The Arts & Crafts Store, or a local farm stand. (This is the type of gourd that is frequently made into a birdhouse.) Here, Matthew sets two gourds upright and one on its side, decorating around them with deep orange persimmons, votive candles, mini-gourds, fall foliage, and antique bottles. (You might also try ‘Jack Be Little’ pumpkins in place of the persimmons.) The mantel is bursting with the colors and fruits of the season.
