Ideas for Decorating Mantles for Fall

I think we can all agree that one of the most satisfying feelings is gathering around a toasty fire when it’s cold outside. To complement indoor fireplaces this fall with added ambiance, don’t forget to add some warm, seasonal decor on the mantle.

Since fireplaces are often the focal point of a room, you never want to leave this precious piece of decor real estate bare! Here are some wonderful ideas for fall mantle decor.


Incorporate some traditional symbols of the season, such as scarecrow, corn maize and cornucopias. 

Via Hoosier Homemade

Old frames and pennant banners are versatile accessories that can be used to create unique vintage mantle displays; plus, you can leave these year round and simply add seasonal touches, such as painted pumpkins for fall.

Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box and create your own DIY decor such as wreaths and decorative letters using feathers, fabrics and even old window frames. 

Via Tatertots & Jello

Of course, you can never go wrong with an all-natural autumn vignette of dried leaves, pine cones, wheat sheathes and acorns, especially when you use these items to create a wreath centerpiece.

    I wish you offered online purchases. The closest store is a half a day drive
    from where I live. It would be nice if you opened a store in Houston, TX area.
