Fall Decoration Flub...UPDATE!

I was holding out to show you guys the latest addition to our Fall Decorations. It finally came in yesterday and I could not WAIT to put it up!! Unfortunately, it didn't turn out as cute as I thought it was going to :(



Check it out...




It just isn't as BIG as I thought it was going to be and the rust color turned out to be more of a screaming "ORANGE."




I'm not giving up though. I think I'm going to add some fall leaves to the mantel and maybe put some of my large canisters on either side and see how it turns out...but as of today, this is my fall decoration flub :(



UPDATE!!!


So this mantel was drving me CRAZY!!! I even had nightmares about it last night...I AM a little OCD :) So I got up this morning and rearranged, searched in my craft closet, tried some different ideas, and this is how my mantel turned out now...


Not sure why the wording is blurry in these pics...maybe I need a new camera :(

Better...not perfect, but BETTER!!!
