I am so excited to share my Fall Mantel this year. I went all sumptuous this year with lots of gold and brown to give the mantel a very grand feel. This massive fireplace needs substantial decor to balance the heaviness of it.This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.
It has been difficult to find Indian corn here in Florida, but I finally came up with a few ears to tuck along my mantel and by my basket on the hearth.
I styled my mantel beginning with a magnolia leaf garland. I used those same garlands last year for my Christmas Mantel.
Craft picks with pinecones, leaves, acorns and cotton bolls were added to my magnolia leaf garland.
I used both gold faux antlers and a real antler on my mantel and then filled in with various fall picks, faux gourds and pumpkins. I filled a bushel basket with Fall florals and pumpkins. In the back behind the large gold pumpkin I used a wreath of oak leaves. You don’t always have to use a wreath AS a wreath. Last year I used the same wreath beneath a basket for an arrangement. You can see that here at How to Make a Fall Arrangement.
I didn’t want to put away my big glass jars that usually adorn my fireplace, so I just added a small Fall swag to a couple of them and clustered them on one corner of my hearth.
A couple of my favorite finds were these faux magnolia blossoms that look like they are faded and the faux dried up artichokes. These were the perfect additions to finish off my Fall mantel.
