I like to change up my mantel with each season. I made these shutters very versatile (you can see that blog post here) as well as my interchangeable family portrait (make one here!).


I removed my portrait and added a beautiful fall sign made by my girlfriend Jaesie from Craft Me Up Decor out of Saint George Utah – she is so talented! This one is the 36 by 24 inch sign found here.

For a simple look I added two faux flower bouquets that I made last year. After I stared at it for a day I decided to add a bit more flair to this space.

Let me walk you through my process:

Step One: Add Fall Sign

Step Two – Add Wheat Stalks

I love these wheat stalks from Floral Treasure that can be found here.  She grows, dries, and arranges the flowers – they are real and smell so delightful!

Step Three – Add Fabric

I love the look of fabric as a base for my decor. These Buffalo Check Napkins from Returning Grace that you can find here are the cutest!

Step Four – Wood for Height

I cut some round wood coasters from an old tree to add height to my main pieces.

Step Five – Main Focus Pieces

These are bold pieces that attract a lot of attention. You could pick anything you want. I added a turkey, scarecrow and lantern filled with tiny pumpkins from Walmart.

Step Six – Filler

I finished my mantel with pumpkins, faux grass fillers and leaves. These were items I had from previous year and I recycled them.

Here are some up close and personal photos of the decor I added for the mantel. As you scroll I hope you get some ideas of ways you can spice up your mantel this season!

Thank you for stopping by and hope you enjoy your Fall season!
