Decorating your Fall Mantel

By September 12, 2012Decorating, Home page - Slider

Well, it’s here…the Fall Mantel is finally done and I’m super excited to share it with you! The rich colors of Fall, and the different textures are always great to decorate with.

I couldn’t be happier with the way it all turned out. The cozy Vintage Quilts in the basket, Railroad Lanterns in the Antique Wire Basket and the Antique Horse really finish off the area.

I brought back in several elements from last year’s Fall Mantel, and added several new ones as well. Let’s get decorating…

We started with the Fall Garland, this is the same one from last year {because I love it so much} but I updated it a bit with new hydrangeas from the yard and a couple wooden pumpkins. If you would like to see how to make your own, head on over to my tutorial!

Then came the Fabric Chain Garland draped over the slate chalkboard. We used to have a large rustic star on the wall, but after using the chalkboard in Christmas decorating last year, I decided it would be pretty cool on the Mantel. I love it!

Next we added the Covered Fall Letters. I think they bring warmth with a little bit of whimsy to the Mantel.

Then the largest pieces were added in, first the wood with berries we found at the county park, and a new little Owl we bought at a Craft Shop in our town, Crows in the Cupboard. If you are local, you must go see that shop! And Mr. Scarecrow that I’ve had for many years.

At the opposite end, an old Railroad Lantern sitting on top of a mini bale of straw to give it some height, and the chunky white pumpkin that was new last year from the same shop I found Mr. Owl this year.

Then it was time to fill in with the smaller items. A chunky orange pumpkin and star from my stash of Fall decorations. And the apples from a local Antique Store, that also sells crafts.

I put the apples in an old strawberry basket with filled a piece of burlap.

So what do you think? Which element is your favorite?
