Decorating your mantel for fall is like the icing on the cake to a cozy, fall-home feel. I’m sharing two subtly different neutral looks to try on your own mantel. Having various textures and layering your decor is key to this look.
I love having fall items around our fireplace that add to that cozy, fall vibe. I am excited to show you two (subtly) different neutral fall mantels in this post.
There are many ways to decorate your mantel for fall that incorporate a neutral color scheme.
You can use various color wood items, galvanized metals, glass items (like these amber-lit pumpkins here), cement bowls or planters, dried or faux florals, and real or faux seasonal items such as gourds, pumpkins, and squash.
These neutral fall looks do not scream, I just bought all the fall things, but rather than bring in fall through the overall feel and look. Swap out lightweight blankets for heavier blankets.
Use straw-like, wispy faux stems instead of brightly colored spring-looking florals.

This DIY blanket ladder is one of my favorite pieces around our neutral fall mantel right now.
You can learn how to make your own here, or go here for a great option if you are not looking for a DIY. Even though they are cream/off-white blankets, the thicker, knobby textures are in line with fall. And, yay for lots of cozy blankets being available to snuggle up with.

I love having ambient lighting, especially with the evenings getting darker earlier, by adding candles around our home and through string/twinkle lights. Both the clear glass pumpkin and these amber light pumpkins come with cozy twinkle lights.
How fun is that?!

Add words to your mantel with an inspiration piece like this sign that speaks to a fall message with Thanksgiving. What a great reminder, right?!
The addition of something black to our otherwise creamy color scheme adds dimension and depth to the mantel. I love the whitewashed look on top of it, which adds a soft feel.
I hope you feel inspired to try out a neutral mantel look in your own home now. A few simple changes from summer can create the layered, full of cozy textures fall look I’ve shared here. Cheers to these cooler, crisper days!
