Ways to Decorate Your Mantel this Fall!

Give your fireplace a makeover this fall with these mantel decorating ideas that celebrate the autumn harvest, Halloween, and everything in between.
















Chesnut-and-Gourd Garland:  Dried gourds and squash form a still life on this mantel. Additional 'Tiny Bottle' gourds hang from chestnuts.

Bringing the Outdoors In:  An autumn-themed garland of dried leaves and mini pumpkins makes for a subtle but effective decorating idea. Add a few pine cones to your log pile for an extra cozy touch.

Orange Accents:  Mini pumpkins and orange berries pop against a yellow mantel.

Fall Leaves:  If you typically opt for a more minimalist decorating approach, punch up your mantel with a single statement piece. Here, one decorator used a garland of colorful leaves and a couple pumpkins to add drama to a fireplace.

Bat Crazy:  Rather than confining her Halloween decor to a narrow mantel, photographer Lindsey Ocker expanded her decorations by adhering bats and cobwebs to the surrounding walls and bookcase.

Arranged Assortment:  A weathered window frame takes center stage on this mantel, while candelabras, pumpkins, and pops of purple add to the tableau.

Photo Accents:  Don't want to mess with the picture frames already lining your fireplace? Follow blogger Landeelu Anderson's cue, and switch out traditional family photos for ones from Halloweens past.
