These festive fall mantels prove you don't have to break the bank in order to welcome autumn indoors.
Who says fall has to be all about warm colors? These white and gold pumpkins and touches of greenery add the perfect autumnal touch, along with the free fall printable banner from Just Destiny. The wood mantel provides the ideal amount of warmth in the all-white, paneled faux fireplace.
Don't want to store a bunch of fall decor for the nine months it isn't in use? Look into decor that can be recycled or composted at the end of the fall season. Head to your local pumpkin patch or grocery store and pick up some small pumpkins and gourds. Line them up on your mantel for a lovely touch of fall. But don't have to stop there. Grab a picture frame, and put in an autumn-theme printable from Nest of Posies. This great idea works for every season and occasion—just swap out the printable.
Pumpkins are great for fall decor because they can stretch from Sepetember to Thanksgiving. If you're looking to add more autumnal colors but don't want to buy new things, shop your house. No good finds? Make decorations like the fall rose garland from Pocket of Posies on this mantel.
When dressing your mantel for fall, it isn't necessary to change out all the items that usually live there. You can add a pitcher filled with sunflowers, greenery, and twigs. Swap out the artwork in a frame with a fall-themed print, like in this home tour from Inspired By Charm. Complete the vingette with a few miniature pumpkins.
Don't be afraid to make a statement with your fall mantel. Hanging a large print or painting is an easy way to decorate for the season. Add some greenery and other smaller items to the mantel, like this home tour from Jones Design Company, to bring everything together.
If your decor is mostly monochromatic, add some natural pops of color into the mix with faux fall leaves, wheat, and other greenery, as shown in this mantel from Cottage in the Oaks.
