It's Not Too Late to Inexpensively Decorate Your Mantel for FALL! Tips and Tricks

Hey Friends!

The leaves are starting to turn into an array of gold, orange and red and I've even had to turn on my fireplace a few mornings.

I like it :-)

You can simply and affordably turn your mantel into a Fall masterpiece by adding natural elements like gourds or mini pumpkins to it.  You can also fill rustic vases with leaf covered twigs, vines or apple branches.

One of my favorite ways to bring the natural elements inside is with birch logs! You can see my post on how to decorate using birch logs for even more inspiration :-)

When decorating, think about using WARM colorful elements like orange and yellows.  Pumpkins are gorgeous on a white mantel - you could even engrave your monogram on it!

Or if you are not very good with a carving knife, you could just use a black sharpie and draw a fancy letter.

You could also create some of your own natural art with leaves.

You guys know how much I enjoy decorating for LESS so let's get creative :-)

How about spray painting an old thrift store frame RED and hanging leaves on a strung ribbon?  I think it's beautiful!

Also at thrift stores you can find SO many different candle holders - start collecting them and then spray them with Krylon's oil rubbed bronze and put mini pumpkins on them for a look like this!

I Really liked this idea by Landee, she printed out leaves and had her family write down things they are thankful for on each one.  Next she strung jute string across a frame and used mini clothespins to attach the leaves to it.

We have a TON of acorn trees nearby and I thought this idea of filling up dollar store vases with acorns and vanilla spice candles was fabulous!

I hope I have stirred up some of your Creative Juices!
