Tomorrow’s the big day. Many of you already have your mantels decorated. I found 10 mantels from www.digsdigs.com to spruce yours up in case you want some new ideas.
I like the idea of using bare branches, which signifies fall. The hydrangeas, and the blackboard idea with a message for the season, all complete this holiday scene.
Another one with the window, surrounded with light colored pumpkins at varying heights to add interest, and keep the eye moving up and down.
Frames are big right now, and this one surprises you with the pop of the red lantern inside.
I like the simplicity of the lined up brown bottles with THANKS written on them. And the background framed document sets the stage for them perfectly.
This one has a bit of unexpected black, which looks crisp against the white background.
Having the wall just above the mantel painted orange is a wonderful accent. The eye goes right to the mirror and the scattered pumpkins. And better yet, dining in front of the fireplace. Ultra cozy.
A simple antique dough bowl with fall gatherings inside, flanked by a mirror. Very simple and elegant.
The framed silhouettes just make this mantel scene. One would assume it is the faces of the family living there. What a great idea! The rest of the mantel is decorated simply so the focus goes to the silhouettes.
A big round mirror over the mantel is always a scene stealer. Adding pops of orange and gourds and pumpkins elevated on books makes it all more interesting.
Which mantel do you like best?
