Easy DIY Fall Mantle

I have been procrastinating on my Fall mantle, until this last weekend. I finally decided to dive in and stay with it until it was done, and I did! I am actually pretty happy with it! Check it out!


I pulled things I had around the house, but it all centered around these jumbo letters I picked up at Joanns with a gift card. I loved them so much I decided to splurge and I am glad I did because they are so amazing on the mantle!


On the sides I pulled in some wheat bundles I bought a million years ago, my standard black candlesticks and someĀ  pumpkins I picked up at the store. I also added in some gold bottles for interest and height. I am pretty happy with these little clusters!


On the other side instead of a real pumpkin, I added in the faux succulent jack o lantern I shared HERE. I love that little thing!


I thought that there needed to be something behind the letters so I wrapped a board I had on hand with some wood grain shelf paper and I really think it helped to fill in the dead space.
