Your mantel and fireplace takes front and center in your living room every day, but during the holidays, it should stand out even more. Because mantels are almost always the focal point of a room, what better place to decorate in the fall than that? Whether your mantel is small or grand, there are so many ways to spruce it up with cute fall decorations. We’ve gathered a few of our favorites below!
A fun banner: we like the idea of using words and sayings on your mantel. Hang a festive banner that says “thankful”, “give thanks”, “fall in love”, or for Halloween hang up a big “BOO!”. This one is a great way to involve the kids.
Decorate your mantel with pumpkins, but not the orange kind! We love the idea of unusual colored pumpkins, like these gold, white and sage ones. If your home decor doesn’t mesh well with orange, you can still get in the fall spirit with other colors. This look is very modern too, so you’ll definitely stand out from the orange crowd!
Hang a wreath inside! Get the family together to make a DIY fall wreath. There are so many DIY wreath tutorials online, it’ll be difficult to choose just one! We think this is a perfect way to decorate your mantel, especially if it was made spending time together because that’s what this season is all about. Thanks for reading, happy decorating and happy holidays!
