Fall Mantle Decor


I have a fascination with Fall and all of the amazing colors!  It's  probably because where I live in Southern California we don't see much Fall color.  So when fall finally arrives I love to decorate around the house with Fall colors and beautiful maple leaves. 

I just finished decorating my mantle for this Fall season.  I used a bunch of faux silk maple leaves, mixed with a few pumpkins that I painted, some burlap cloth ribbon and small pine cones.



I got an amazing deal on the burlap.  I got 300 feet of it on a roll for only $9.99.  You can get the same deal on Burlap Ribbon/Cloth Here.




I like the look of Fall on the mantle, but now I am thinking I need to find something different to hang above the mantle.  The colors in this picture don't look right with all of the fall decor.  It definitely needs something more rustic! 


I am thinking maybe an old vintage window or a rustic old frame would look good in place of the picture.  What do you think?  I would love to hear your thoughts!
Until next time,
Diana

  5. Love this!! Sweet mantel. I always struggle with that line between not enough and too much. You hit it just right.

  6. Since you live in Southern California, like me, have you thought of using driftwood on your mantle? It might be a nice touch!

    1. I do love driftwood. But I don't specifically have any at this time... And also I live in Beaumont California now so the beach is now about 80 miles away from me. The only wood I find around my home is tumbleweed (lol).

  7. Love the look ... The picture is beautiful, but a scrolly iron piece with a fall wreath might look good with what you have up there. It would work well with the sconces and still leave an open airy look. Just a suggestion.
