Happy Fall, Y’all! I’m so excited to share my Fall mantle with you guys this year. I wanted to go really traditional this year with orange and black. In the past, I’ve stayed more neutral but I’m LOVING the rust color this year so I figured I’d incorporate it. I’ll link what I can below! Just click the product image and it’ll take you right to the product.
Since my kids are still young, I wanted my mantle to say Halloween without being scary. The Happy Fall Y’all sign is actually a door hanger from Kirklands from a couple years ago. It has a buffalo plaid bow, so I knew these buffalo plaid pillows would be perfect. IT comes in a pack of two for under $15. I wanted to tie in more orange and actually have these pillow covers in blue for Christmas time. They also come in a pack of two and are under $20. Tip: Buy covers 1 size smaller than your pillows to get that fullness. Ex. If your pillow inserts are 24×24, order 22×22 pillow covers.
My favorite part about the mantle are the bats. I’ve seen this all over Pinterest and knew I wanted to incorporate them. Don’t fret if you’re not a DIY kinda girl (me neither!), I found this pack of 120 bats for under $15 that all you do is add on the sticky piece to adhere to a wall. I used a fraction of the 120, so there is plenty to use in multiple places in your home or save for next year.
The pumpkins are old but you can find them at any local craft store such as Hobby Lobby, Home Goods or Michael’s. You can never have enough throw blankets, so I knew this would be perfect. It’s under $25 and comes in so many colors.
For the mantle, I didn’t want to do an assortment of pumpkins or eucalyptus or anything. Where our TV sits, if anything is in front of it, it’s hard for the remote to reach it. I actually found skulls at Dollar Tree for $1 and I painted them either white, orange or black. I had extra crystals laying around in my craft room, so I added them where the eyes are. Super fun and inexpensive DIY!
I also had white candles but I didn’t have black candle holders. These came in a pack of 3 in different heights so I ordered two sets for each side of the fireplace. That’s about it! I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments!
