Fall Mantel Decorating Ideas
Whether you use your candles for light or decoration, they make perfect mantel decorations. Tall candlesticks are great for adding height to the mantel arrangement, while short candles and tea lights work best as filler items. Use scented candles to fill your home with an autumn aroma that’s unique to the season.
Adding fall foliage to your mantel is easy with a beautiful garland. Use a garland with red, orange, and yellow leaves to add vibrant fall colors to your mantel, or keep it neutral with bare branches woven with vines. Work a strand of lights into your garland of choice to give your mantel a subtle glow.
Give your mantel an unmistakable fall design with fall-themed artwork. A large wooden sign or painting works perfectly as a mantel centerpiece, while small metallic lanterns, wooden boxes, or autumn-themed statues add additional layers of fall flair.
Nothing adds to a fall theme more than natural decor accents. Small pumpkins, squash, and other gourds are great for creating a spectrum of fall colors. Bring in some texture and fill small spaces with acorns and pinecones, and display vases with dried wheat or tree branches for added height.
