Oh the pressure to come up with something interesting for the fall mantel! Actually, I shouldn’t feel pressured at all…it should be fun to decorate, right?
This year, I just went with a simple black and orange mantel!
Ever since I switched out my rectangle mirror for a round one, I have had trouble being creative with my mantel.
So, for this year’s fall mantel I stuck with a simple, symmetrical arrangement. Symmetry is always pleasing to my eye.
Since I didn’t want to buy a bunch of new accessories, I just used things I had in my fall storage bin.
As always, my old-standby black candlesticks made an appearance.
To lighten up all the black, I added some white pumpkins to the ends.
(I only had two orange candles so I mixed in white ones.)
In one of my bins, I found this little felt witches hat. I thought it added a silly touch to the jack-o’-lantern.
And there you have my simple black and orange mantel! Sometimes the easy way is the best way! Now there’s more time for pumpkin spice treats!
