I’ve been wanting to make a natural fall mantel display for a couple of years. I feel like I never do much decorating for fall, it always feels hard to do. (I did do this fall mantel in the past, as well as a Halloween one. And before we had this fireplace, I decorated the living room like this for fall). There’s just not a lot of decor things that I feel really drawn to for fall. But my favorite part of fall, the leaves (and pumpkins too!). And I’ve got plenty of those around!
So I decided to use natural elements for my fall mantel decor this year. I walked around my yard and cut branches and vines to use. I also made a dried apple garland, which I’ll be sharing how I did that next week.
This fall mantel decor is a little wild, and maybe not everyone’s style. But I love it! I love that it’s not traditional and feels a little untamed. I thought about adding even more to this, but thought maybe for my first time around not to go too wild, haha! And I love that the majority was free, from my yard! (I did buy my apples & pumpkins).
