Fall Mantel 2016


This week, a fantastic group of home bloggers is ready to inspire you with fall decorating ideas and a different theme every day.  Today’s theme is Mantels and I’m sharing my neutral decorated fall mantel this year, which is a change from previous years.
Fall Mantel Decorating Ideas

I’m not one to jump ahead of each season or holiday, and I feel like I can finally embrace that fall is coming soon.  The mornings are chilly, the afternoons are hot, and the apple orchard is open for business again… their apple cinnamon donuts are delish!

So last week I finally packed away my red, white, and blue summer mantel decor and brought out my fall goodies.  This year, I left the traditional red, orange, and yellow behind and decorated in shades of neutral:

I used mostly items I already had (I’ve figured out how to incorporate my white painted frame and candlesticks into every season – yeay!) with a few small additions, including the now-famous $3 Target textured pumpkins that sold out too quickly near me… or I would’ve bought more than two.

Many of the other items I’ve collected over the years are from Hobby Lobby and from thrifting.

And I still love this FALL sign that I made a few years ago with scrapbook paper decoupaged onto wooden letters and then glued on a burlap canvas with upholstery tacks around the edges.

Have you decorated for fall yet, or are you still hanging onto the last few breaths of summer?

    Jen – you know that we love your style. Your neutral mantel is fabulous. The DIY “FALL” artwork makes such a petty statement. The candlesticks and their height are great additions too. Don’t even get us started on those adorable Target pumpkins…we missed the boat entirely on that deal LOL. Great touring with you today!

      Thanks so much, Vicki and Jennifer. Those candlesticks were brand new from Ballard Designs and I painted them to match the frame (haha). I have a couple more but they are even taller and won’t fit on my mantel. 😉

      Thank you Marie. The pumpkins are mostly from Hobby Lobby – they have tons of different styles! And then the two new ones are from Target. One year I’ll make some of my own when I have extra time. 🙂

    Your mantel looks so pretty and I love that you used neutrals this year. I went to Target last week because I’ve seen some cute items that people have shared and mine had not one thing. I love the pumpkins that you found there!

      Thank you Paula. Ours sold out of the fall decor quickly and they have tons of Halloween stuff now, but that’s not really my thing. I’m all set until I decorate for Christmas now. 🙂

    Such a pretty mantel! I found the same pumpkins at Target and went back and they had different shapes. They sold our quickly here too. It is fun touring with you this week!

      Thanks Lindsay – yeah they sold out way too quickly! I knew I should’ve bought more when I had the chance.

      Thanks so much, Shirley. I love playing with seasonal decor and seeing how it can evolve from year to year with just a few small changes.

      Thanks so much Jennifer. I love that piece too. I’ve been searching for an authentic vintage trophy for a long time. 🙂

      Thanks so much, Kim! Target’s fall decor was awesome – I wish I had bought more before it sold out!
