Fall Mantle Tutorial
On our Fall Bucket List this year, click here to see the full post, one of the many exciting tasks on our list is to decorate the halls for fall. Today on the blog we are going to show you one way to decorate your home this year for the fall season.
Instead of the trendy, minimalist take on fall this year, I decided to create a fun twist to a traditional style. I wanted a design that was fun; far from the worries of perfectionism. By using many colors that would brighten up the room, I went for a look that really makes the home feel like fall.
So let’s get started & turn your mantle into a fun, happy, & festive corner of your home.
Start with a blank canvas. Nothing feels more refreshing and inspiring than starting from scratch and really looking at the space you have to work with.
Next, add your backgrounds or centerpieces. Anything that needs to be hung on the wall should definitely go first along with your centerpiece.
You will also need a focal point. Something big to draw everyone’s eyes too.
This wooden sign from Home Goods was the perfect focal point for this Mantle. Keep in mind your “centerpiece” doesn’t necessarily need to be in the exact center!
To start adding pops of color, I handmade a pom garland and hung it with a Thankful banner from the dollar bin at Target.
To make the pom garland, first, pick out your colors. Then with a pom maker (found at most craft store chains), make about 5 pom poms of each color depending on the length of the garland you want and the size of the pom poms you make.
String all the pom poms together and then hang them on the mantle.
After adding the main pieces to your mantle, next, it is time to add some decor.
This Pumpkin Spice barrel from Hobby Lobby was too adorable not to include. Throw in some flowers to transform it into a vase and you’ve got yourself a fall floral arrangement.
A favorite, adding haystacks gives this look a fun “pumpkin patch” farm touch to it.
Along with the haystacks, I added a jar filled with extra pom poms and happy flags from Natalie Creates Shop. I added a small fall twig garland, that I left coiled, from Michaels to the bottom of the jar for extra texture.
I then added these signs found in the clearance section of Michaels.
& finally, it is time for filler. I used artificial leaves, pumpkins, acorns, and a candle to fill in the empty spaces and give this mantle a more full and vibrant feel.
And there you have it, a finished Fall Mantle.
