Fall Mantle decorating ideas

Well, we are in full swing Fall! The nights and mornings are cooler with warm days, the leaves are turning and even the outside has that “Fall” smell. Someone

was burning leaves the other day and there is something about it that smells so good! I was looking for some Fall mantle decorating ideas  and I thought I would share them with you!

Fall mantle decorating ideas for everyone

I love the use of all of the natural elements on this one.

I love tucking little bits of Fall decor around my house, and I found these great Fall inspiration pictures I wanted to share with you.

Here is a beautiful French Country inspired mantle by Serendipity Refined.

If you don’t have a mantle, you can use a buffet, hutch or sideboard as a mantle like Liz Marie did here,

And Honey we’re home.

By using lots of natural elements, it has the same impact as on a mantle.

And if you are starting to decorate for Halloween, here are a few cute ideas:

Like this great Transitional mantle from Fall into Halloween.

Or adding a little spookiness,

Old clocks can add a touch of texture and interest.


You can also add vintage touches like Thoughts from Alice did.

I love seeing all of the decorating going on, and how there are so many ways you can decorate for Fall whether you have a mantle or not!

  1. Beautiful mantels here. This is the first year I have one in many years and I am excited to get it decorated. It didn’t get decorated for Halloween, since we were painting it and shiplapping it. Now that it is finished, I need to get to work. My favorite of those you featured is the one by Serendipity Refined. I love the look of the leaves on the branches. Sadly I have a big television above my mantel, but I can work with it. Glad to get some inspiration here! Happy Fall!

    1. Thank you Chloe! It’s a great time of year to be able to decorate! I love Kim’s style too!

  2. This is our first fall with a working fireplace (last year we were mid-reno), so I had a lot of fun decorating it. I went with lots of pumpkins from the garden like so many of the other bloggers here: I do have plans for something a bit creepier for Hallowe’en, though. Now that I have a mantel, I can’t stop decorating it! Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Just love that there is a site that showcases Mantels. I’ve always had mine filled with whimsy, holiday adding all of my goodies from around the house. Thank you for adding ideas to my repertoire!
