Are you looking for ways to warm up your home with cozy fireplace inspirations and fall decorating ideas for your mantel? Cuddle up around the fire and let American Home Shield Home Matters help you create the perfect seasonal atmosphere, starting in the heart of your home. Here are five fall fireplace décor and mantel design ideas that you can recreate in your own space:
1. Decorate for Fall for a Traditional Look
Go classic and arrange pumpkins in different sizes and colors along with autumn leaves and bittersweet on your fireplace mantel. Traditional arrangements with bright, cheery autumnal hues never go out of style and can complement any décor or design aesthetic.
2. String a Strand of Pinecones
Make a simple pinecone garland to hang on your mantel. You can anchor it with bows in fall colors, or twist burlap ribbon through it for a rustic touch. Here’s a bonus: change out the ribbons to red, green, or metallic colors and you have a festive Christmas or winter decoration in just minutes.
3. Go for a Distressed Mantel Surface
If you don’t like your fireplace mantel, maybe now is the time to replace it. Instead of purchasing a new mantel and spending time distressing the new wood, scour antique stores and second-hand shops for old mantels that have character and charm. The imperfections in an aged mantel will blend perfectly with your fall decorations and make them look better than ever.
4. Create a S’mores Station Indoors
Make a s’mores basket and place it on your hearth. Put some fall ribbon around a pretty basket, and place marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate bars, long handled skewers, and oven mitts inside so that you’ll be ready to make this classic fireside treat when the mood hits. (With adult supervision for the kiddos, of course!).
5. Make a Non-working Fireplace a Focal Point
Do you have a non-working fireplace? You can still make it a warm and cozy focal point for your home. One easy idea is to fill the fireplace with logs. In addition to keeping with the fireplace theme, the logs will add texture and depth to the room.
When decorating your fireplace and mantel for fall, don’t forget to look in your own back yard! In addition to pinecones, you can save money and time by gathering in branches, leaves, dried flowers, acorns and other nuts to use. This is a great activity for kids to help with, too.
