Over the years, I have been drooling over all the beautiful fall mantels on Pinterest. Makes me want a fireplace so badly, but I knew that wasn’t going to happen anytime soon. Funny thing is, I moved from a house that had 5 fireplaces and that was so much fun to decorate at Christmas time especially.
After looking at many different websites and pinning some of my favorite to my Fall Idea Pinterest page, I came up on Cherished Bliss who made a faux fall mantel. Loved it!! I loved the pop of color she put in this display.
So after that inspiration, I knew I could make something for myself.
What would I use? We have a huge tv wall unit that looks a lot like the picture above. I have a few baskets and other items on top of it and I thought that would be the perfect place to display fall items.
I asked hubby what he would like to see up there and he said, “football”. I wouldn’t expect him to say anything else different. I also wanted some orange string lights and I had to order them online. After gathering pumpkins, leaves, sunflowers and a couple of other items, I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out.
I love I will be able to keep this up until Christmas and I hope I can find a small glass turkey to add for November. I will need to make a trip or two to the area consignment stores. I can’t wait to figure out what to do for Christmas, springtime and summer.
Everyone can have a decorated mantel, even though it is faux!

Have a wonderful and blessed day,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
