Fall Mantel Decorations

It’s that time of year again.  Time to start thinking about Fall Mantel Decorations.  As I was putting together my fall wreath, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my extra mini-pumpkins!  An adorable little garland for my mantle.  I love how it’s a simple touch of fall attached to  jute string using my favorite little hot glue gun. My mantel wouldn’t be the same without it.

Do you remember my DIY fence mantel art from a while back?  I loved it so much.  Well, it got a little makeover!  Stud and I took the Dremmel to it and had some fun.  I’m loving the new look with my fall mantel decorations.  I think this is my favorite deer head ever and it totally pops up against the white mantel and fireplace.  I haven’t regretted painting my mantle and fireplace for even one second.

My vintage candelabra will forever be a staple in my home.  I love it when home decor offers a touch of surprise and this candelabra has a way of doing that wherever it lands.  Partly because of it’s ornate vive and partly because of it’s chippy paint.

My pumpkins stacked add just the right touch of fall to the mantel.  My sweet pumpkins stretched out on this lovely canvas totally make me smile, too.

Oliver is all decked out, too with a one of a kind pumpkin and jute collar.

Welcome to fall, sweet friends!  I hope your leaf crunching, caramel apple eating, pumpkin patch visiting, season of life is super blessed!

I love the look of bright white with reclaimed wood!?!  Here’s a little vignette from a recent, super fun $4.99 wire bowl find.  I love the handles so much.  What Fall Mantel Decorations do you plan on incorporating this year?!  Last year I showed you my nature fall mantel…Yes, I have a thing for Antlers!

    I was wondering if you would be willing to make and sell one of the deer head mantel fence pieces and if so for how much.

    • Aimee says:

  18. Hi There! Came on by from Cozy Little House. Cute pumpkin bunting. I am in LOVe with your barn wood deer, tho. WOW!

  19. Liz says:

    Amazing stuff! How DO you do it!? The little mini pumpkins on jute remind me of pom poms and how sweet! You are right, they pop like crazy in the best way. The whole thing is fabulous and how brave to cut out the dear head on the wood. Genius! Just genius!

  20. Emily says:

    I love what you did with the pallet and the cutting out of a shape. I might not do a deer but I may have to use this for my mantel design next month. Thanks for giving me some inspiration.

  21. Heidi says:

    Simple and awesome. My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.

    Super Cute! I love your grey hound next to the fireplace. My grandmother (who is super amazingly craft since way back) has had a rad grey hound next to her white fireplace for years. I have always admired him and her for being awesome enough to decorate with a life-size ceramic dog. You now have my deepest respect and affection. xoxo

  23. Tanya says:

    Aimee, I love, love, love your mantel. I want the ceramic dog and the deer, and the mantel itself, and the garland, and…it’s fabulous 🙂

    Hugs, Tanya

  34. Love the tiny pumpkins and the kiddos are toooooo precious! In love with the wire basket! It’s perfect. Thank you for sharing. Saw you over at Creations by Kara. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2012/09/make-it-pretty-monday-week-16.html Hope to see you at the bash!

  35. Linda@Coastal Charm says:

    Looks GREAT..love the tiny pumpkins and family pic!


  36. Honey says:

    Adore your “deer head”! Now that’s creativity!

  37. The deer head cut-out is a great idea – the white background is a perfect contrast to the rough wood.

  38. faye says:

    very beautiful!

  39. It looks so awesome Aimee!!! That deer head cut out is seriously incredible and the entire mantel is so wonderful. Well done girl! 🙂

  40. Love your antlers! And I agree on the candelabra! I have a little candlestick collection and they are so versatile! Visiting via Centsational Girl!

  41. Everything looks really great! I first read the wire bowl price as $499. I was thinking that while it looks very nice, that sure was a lot of money. Yeah, it is time for me to go to sleep…or something!

  42. Wendy says:

    Very cool! I love the texture the fence brings!

  43. We have deer and elk, mostly elk, in our yard daily and our creation of an deer head is my favorite ever! I may have to try one.
    Homa Style is having a No Orange Autumn Display Link Party tomorrow on Wednesday and would love to see your creation there. Here’s the link…
    Hope to see your deer at the party!

  44. Love the white and wood. I am still debating if we should paint our mantel. Yours looks lovely!!


  45. LOVE your rustic, simple and modern look next to those cute little pumpkins! (The ones that make you smile!)

  46. Pam Lapere says:

    THAT. IS. WAY. COOL. Best reindeer award!

  47. Cynthia says:

    I love the old fence and boards. Everything looks festive.


  48. Megan says:

    It looks gorgeous! What a cute idea to make that garland. The old fence boards look so beautiful.

  49. Kim says:

    That looks great, Aimee. Love what you did to the planks.

  50. cassie says:

    love it! it looks so light and airy and whimsical, yet a little rustic, too!

  51. I LOVE you mantle! It’s so my style.

  52. Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles says:
