How To Decorate Your Fireplace For Fall

How To Decorate Your Fireplace For Fall

It's that time of year again! Time to bust out all the pumpkins, mums, flannel, and pumpkin spice everything! It's the best time of year in my opinion and so I thought what a fun way to kick off the season than by sharing our fall fireplace decor! I'll teach you step by step how you can recreate a similar look in your own home below; so lets get started! 

ย 

Start With An "Anchor" 

Not a literal anchor, rather a large statement piece in the middle that draws your eyes to the fireplace. For my anchor, I used an antique mirror. I love the mirror because it reflects extra light and can give the appearance of a larger space! Other great anchor ideas include a peice of art, a vintage clock, or even a canvas print. 

Add Height 

Next you'll want to add some height to the mantle. For my mantle, you'll see I chose 2 varying heights, while making sure they were not taller than the mirror itself. I chose a pumpkin topiary as well has a floral arrangement. Don't worry about them being the exact same height either, close enough will do! Then I did a level down in height to add more variation with the two pumpkins next to the mirror. 

Add Texture

To add texture, I used a pretty leaf garland across the mantel. I even have fairy lights intertwined with the leaves to add a little sparkle in the evening! They are battery powered too so they are super easy for adding a touch of whimsy to your design. To add extra texture I used a small strawbale on the seat of the fireplace. Although using straw can be a little messy, so if you have little kids maybe reconsider that one! LOL Other ways I added texture include the different styles of pumpkins. You'll notice I used glass, wood, and twine pumpkins to add variety.

Add Filler 

So to finish off the rest of the space I added some extra pieces to the seat of the fireplace like the oversized pumpkin, raccoon, and extra small fillers like these leaf picks and smaller sized pumpkins.

Add Pieces You Love

This small crow is one of my favorite pieces I own. Brian bought him for me at Menards one day and it was a sweet little gesture so I always like to add him to my decor! :) Adding pieces that mean something to you will make the space feel special and will bring back happy memories each time you look at your decor. You can also include a framed picture of your family at a pumpkin patch or even a decorative piece handed down to you from your mother, there's endless possibilities for adding a little love to your look. <3


So it's really that simple to decorate your fireplace for Fall! All you need are some key pieces and small fillers to make a festive look that will have your guests in awe! Happy decorating!
