Fall Mantel Decor

Autumn - Fall Mantel at Mom 4 RealFall is upon us…right?  I mean football has started, pumpkins are out, mums are blooming, so even though the calendar doesn’t say that it is Fall, it is Fall to me!  As soon as I saw pumpkins at the grocery this weekend, I knew I was ready to decorate my Fall Mantel.  This may be my favorite mantel yet!

Fall Mantel Decor with Pumpkins and a ChalkboardI painted this huge chalkboard last year for my The Notebook Inspired Valentine’s Mantel, and haven’t wanted to take it down…it’s so much fun to change with the seasons!

Draw a Pumpkin with ChalkI wanted to draw a few fun pumpkins for Fall, and found the perfect tutorial oh how to paint a pumpkin on my friend Jennifer Rizzo’s Blog, and decided to follow her instructions, but draw mine instead.  Her pumpkin painting is soooo super fabulous, I’m going to give it a try myself!

Pumpkin Topiary

I had these wonderful wooden spools that I bought at a local Lexington store, Finders Keepers Market, and decided to stack some mini pumpkins on top of them for some fun pumpkin topiaries…cute, right?

Pumpkin Topiary Ivy Shutters ChalkboardI added my Aunt Irene’s antique binoculars and an ivy plant in an urn.

Fall Decor

I took down my fireplace screen and stacked a large copper boiler on top of an old painted army trunk.  I placed my Kentucky Silhouette Dropcloth Pillow in front and added a couple of large pumpkins.

Fall Mantel With ChalkboardI painted some shutters that I found at the Peddler’s Mall and added a few more details, and took a step back.  I just love it!

Fall Mantel With Large ChalkboardI love walking in to the room and seeing all of the touches of Fall…they just make me smile!

What do you think?  Are you ready to decorate for Fall?
