Layered Fall Mantel


Today, I'm over at Design, Dining + Diapers, sharing my scrappy Fall banner with Taryn's readers. And, I thought, while I'm at it, I'd share my Fall Mantel with YOU! 

You may have noticed I've been a little lacking in the mantel department. After my 52 weekly mantel changes, I was pretty, how should I say? Over mantels. I'm not going to lie, I needed a mantel break. Originally, I'd planned on doing a Halloween mantel and then a Fall mantel...but, that Halloween mantel might not happen. I think I'll just enjoy looking at all the Halloween mantels in blogland instead. You don't mind, right?? 

But, success! I DO have a Fall mantel.

(For someone with the word "Mantel" in her blog name, does this even count as a victory??)


The deets: I used lots of my favorite small pumpkins, glass vases filled with wood pieces and a pretty wooden tray (made by a dear friend-- she should sell these, right??). And, of course, my scrappy Fall banner. Easy and earthy.


If you want the (quick! easy!) tutorial for my Fall Banner, head on over to Design, Dining + Diapers for all the deets!


And, if you really need some Halloween mantel ideas, you can check out some of my past Halloween mantels.

Happy Monday, friends!

  1. I love this idea! Often times the mantelpiece gets ignored until Christmas, but this is a great way to get into the Halloween spirit.

  3. I always love everything you do, no matter how simple. I wanted to come over to your blog to leave you a comment. I have a few of those little chipboard books, not fabric covered. 2 of them are in shape of houses, a scalloped square and others are flowers so guess I'll use a house shaped one. Love shape of yours but guess I'll make do with what I have. I haven't seen those chipboard books anymore at our Michaels in Grand Junction, CO.
    I too have only been making Fall decorations. No more small gk's or any t-or-t's so I stay with Fall stuff. I love colors of Fall and even tho I have lots of decos already I just have to make things every year. What else could I do with myself? I need to create and with plethora of ideas on blog land I've had a hard time deciding which ones to do. Hubs keeps asking me how many more project I intend to make. He was out cutting out pumpkins, signs for me from pallet wood. I so enjoy your blog, always have since I discovered it about 2 yrs. ago. Enjoy rest of the week

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comment!! I haven't seen the house shaped chipboard, but it sounds cute! My Michael's still has a few chipboard albums, but maybe they're phasing them out. I'm with you on the Fall colors-- it's my favorite. I don't really love Halloween decor, if I'm honest.

      Anyway, thanks so much for your sweet comment! You always make me smile. For some reason, I didn't get email notice of these comments. But, I'm glad I opened this back up and saw your message!

  7. This is a fabulous fall mantel!!! I LOVE every detail especially the vases with the wood pieces and pumpkins. And ya, that tray is awesome! I do think it's okay for you to take a mantel break... I think it's safe to say we won't hold it against you. ;)
