Signify Harvest

Plants and flowers are a go-to fireplace mantel idea whenever a space needs primping.

Wheat and flowers

Autumn flowers and plants have rich colors, so take advantage of these hues to warm up your mantel. Display a bunch of wheat stalks in a white ceramic bowl, then accentuate it with a couple of flowers. The rich, dark tone of the wheat stalks contrasts with the mellow hues of the flowers and the bowl, bringing an overall warm fashion to your mantel.

A wreath for autumn

Fall wreaths have been gaining popularity these past few years, and with good reason. A wreath for your fall mantel acts as a centerpiece, like this lovely wreath made from twigs and cotton. If you’re feeling creative, you can make your own wreath. This pretty fall wreath from Thrifty Décor Chick has quick, simple instructions to help you.

Gourds are the best symbol for fall, and the mantel is an ideal place to display them! If you want a simple fall mantel, you can place a group of small gourds along with your other décor to instantly change up the area. This tip is easy and takes up only a little of your time.

 

Light up the Place with Candles

The season may not yet warrant a full-on fire in the fireplace, but having some candles on the mantel brings visual warmth to your space. Use hurricanes to cradle your candles, then add a handful of acorns and twigs to complete the ensemble.Make your mantel fun this season with these fall mantel ideas!
