Fall Mantel

Remember that fireplace makeover we worked on at Kevin’s brother’s house a few weeks back? Well, we decided to surprise them with some fast and fun Fall mantel decor last week, too!

The cardboard letters came from Hobby Lobby. We just hot glued them together and hung them on the wall with masking tape.

(We couldn’t bring ourselves to pound nails into their pretty new planks just yet- ha!)

We wanted the mantel decor to coordinate with the look and feel in the rest of the room

…so we gathered up a collection of green & gold faux pumpkins (gourds?) and a strand of faux leaf garland (Hobby Lobby), along with some old books, and dishes, and candleholders we already had on hand. We also used a couple of small grapevine wreaths to act as a pedestal for the small pumpkin on the right…

It was a super simple snazz-up, and we sure had fun creating it for them!

Can’t wait to see lots more fall mantel pics over at Centsational Girl today!

PS- Looking forward to¬†Thrifty Decor Chick‘s “Easy Fall Decor” link party on Thursday, too!
