My Faux Fall Mantel

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.

My Faux Fall Mantel

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,



  1. Tammy, It’s absolutely perfect! I love the glow of Fall colors in the evening. It makes everything a warm and cozy feeling. Have you ever thought of picking up an old mantle and just leaning it against a free wall in your home? Just something to keep in the back of your mind, if you ever come across one. I notice the banner has GA and MO on it…..I’m from Georgia and my Dad’s family live in Missouri! 🙂

    1. I had thought about putting up a faux mantle, but haven’t found one that I really care to have. We are both so country and living here in Florida, they are kind of hard to find. My hubby was born and raised in Georgia and the same for me in Missouri. Its a small world. Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. I love it! I am trying to think where I could do a faux mantle now. Our space is pretty small so I will have to really think on this one. Thanks for the inspiration.
