Neutral Fall Mantel

The first day of Fall is in two days…come on, Fall…I’m ready! I’ve got my mantel all decked out to welcome you!

I am excited to be a part of a fun Fall tour with some of my favorite blogging friends this week, and I’m participating today with my mantel!

Come on in…

I'm loving a neutral Fall pallette again this year. My mantel /Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer

I decided to use last year’s Fall wreath on my mantel this year instead of on my front door:

I love this neutral color combination for Fall.

Remember my mini pumpkin garland I had on my hutch? I switched up the ivory letters for these chalkboard banner pieces for my mantel.

I love it both ways.

(If you’re in the market to cover an armless accent chair, I share how I covered the one above here.)

The grapevine pumpkin was a clearance purchase from Walmart a few years ago. It had an orange flower pick on the top, but I removed it. The pumpkins were spray painted…

The arrangements on either side were thrown together for about $6 each with stems from Michaels.

So there’s my Fall mantel! I’ve shared every season but Fall, so now my set is complete. 🙂

Here’s another Fall project I shared recently that you might like if you missed it. I turned an old lantern into my new Fall centerpiece:

  10. Oh Boy! that looks great! I’m soooo excited. Someone offered me a Bunch of spindles (banister) & I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of different uses. Your reclaimed crate & spindle is one I can use for sure!
    Also what kind of decorative scroll is that in front of fireplace? I am in process of painting my old brass, glass door fireplace cover. That looks pretty as well.
    Thanks!

    • Oh good, glad I could give you an idea for your spindles! That scroll is one of those fireplace screens that has a bajillion tea light holders on it, but I took them out and turned it around. I bought it at Kirklands forever ago. 🙂

  19. This rainy day that we are having here in VA makes me want to cuddle up under a blanket in front of a decorated for fall mantel like yours. I recognized your wreath from last year and think that it looks equally great inside. Your floral arrangements on the side of your mantel also look pretty. I like fall decor but hate to see the warm temperatures go away.

  20. Christy, I remember seeing your summer mantel and I didn’t know how you could top that one, but you sure knocked it out of the park with this one! Love every single little detail (especially that lace adorned pillow on the chair!)

  21. The repurposed window backdrop is stunning. I love the texture. Such a fresh color palette. I really love this mantel!

  22. You just can’t ever go wrong with neutrals and mercury glass, can you? So cozy and glamorous!

  23. Love your gorgeous wreath and the Fall mini pumpkin banner is just adorable!

  24. I’m in love with your mantel…can I move in? Simply stunning as usual:) beautiful my friend, and you’ve made me really…really want a mantel to decorate too!

  25. I love the neutral colors too. Its’s fun to use previous years decor in a new way or spot. You have inspired me to decorate. Thx

  26. Your mantel is stunning, Christy! I love the way you’ve incorporated delicate greens into your autumn decor. Lovely hugs, mb

  27. What a gorgeous neutral fall mantel! You put this together beautifully! And I really like how you styled the chair too! I’m so inspired!

  28. Absolutely gorgeous! That bunting is so sweet. You are really wanting me to try slipcovers. Pretty chair!

    • Thanks, Christy! My MIL gave me these chairs and although they were a great shade of blue, I wanted something more neutral. I didn’t have the heart to get rid of them, so this was the perfect solution! 🙂

  29. Christy – You are so inspiring. I love this fall mantle and just about everything else you have shared. I do hope you will join us at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop. I would love to feature you!
