Fall Decorating Inspiration For Your Mantel!

Many of us love decorating our homes for the fall, but sometimes we need a little bit of inspiration to help us get started.

One of the focal points of a family room or living room is often the fireplace and it can be a challenge to decorate!  Don’t let decorating your mantel stress you out and definitely don’t let it break the bank.

One of the best things about fall is you can typically find items to decorate your home right in your backyard!  Items like acorns, logs, pinecones, sticks and leaves make great decorations for fall and don’t cost a dime!  (Make sure to check for critters!)

Other items like burlap, old crates, lanterns, shutters and candle sticks you can typically find at garage sales or even a local thrift store.  These type of items are easy to paint, stain, or leave how they are for a distressed / aged look.

Here are some pictures of mantels we just love to help with your fall decorating inspiration!  You can make your mantel as simple as you want or really go all out like some of these homeowners did!

We would love to see how you have decorated your mantel for fall!
