How to create a simple + neutral Fall mantel in just a few simple steps…
We’re already deep into the cool, crisp + colourful throws of Fall here in Northern AB.
And I’m loving every cozy minute of it!
Not only have I dug out all of my favourite sweaters, scarves and boots, but I’ve been adding all sorts of cozy Fall decor around the house too!
Second only to Christmas (just three months away!), Fall is one of my very favourite seasons to decorate for!
The urge to bring some lovely, cozy touches to each room in our home is just too much to resist!
But of course, all that cozy Fall decor doesn’t stop there.
I couldn’t resist bringing a few Fall touches to our master bedroom…
I can’t wait to show you how I brought some cozy Fall style to our DIY faux fireplace with this simple + neutral Fall mantel!
step one: I always start with something tall on either end of my mantel. Now, both ends don’t necessarily need to match in the actual decor, but I do try to keep a balance in height with each size. Though, this time around, I did use the same faux plant on either side.
step two: Add some decor to the centre. This could be one larger or longer piece or a grouping of smaller decor items as I’ve done.
step three: Fill in any gaps with smaller decor. I LOVE to use candles to break up any large, empty spaces. I also always try to maintain that balance I mentioned above on either side.
step four: Don’t forget the hearth. Though my DIY faux fireplace doesn’t technically have a hearth, I did take advantage of the floor space in front of and beside my fireplace to add a few more cozy touches with my favourite candlesticks and a woven basket + blanket.
That’s it friends! Minutes later I had a lovely Fall mantel…
The perfect cozy corner in our master bedroom!
Just in case you’d like to put a few of these pieces to work in your own Fall decor, I’ve linked to everything I used to create this farmhouse Fall fireplace below:
Now, I’m excited to see even more Fall decor inspiration through the Fall Festival Blog Hop, hosted by my sweet friend Kendra at Joy in Our Home.
