Do you like to ease into fall décor for your home? Transitional decor from summer into fall means changing out the colorful pieces from the summer for subtle tones that give a nod to the coming season.
Putting together an early fall mantel doesn’t mean it’s filled with pumpkins and fall foliage. This year I plan on using lots of greens and corals for my fall décor and I’m starting with adding some pieces to our mantel in the family room.

The Centerpiece for the Mantel is this floral arrangement that was a thrift store find. I removed the old flowers from it and gave the vase a fresh coat of paint.
Whenever I’m creating seasonal décor, I like to keep it budget friendly. Using thrift store find makeovers, dollar store items, and pieces that I already have on hand helps to keep the cost low.
Early Fall Mantel Décor
I’ve used this Grapevine Wreath for a few years. It’s had several makeovers. Last year I added a large bloom, ribbon, and floral sprigs. This year, I removed those elements and added fall floral sprigs to go with the ones I used in the centerpiece.
Whenever, I’m styling the mantel for a new season I start by removing everything and sorting through seasonal décor. Once I’ve decided on the pieces I want to use, I begin adding them one at a time until I get the complete look.
I don’t know about you, but I love a symmetrical look. I’m all about adding pieces so that the mantel has a balanced look. I’m using these decorative orbs, a painted metal candle holder, and a wooden tapered candle holder on each end of the mantel.
I was shopping at Dollar Tree recently and spotted these candles in the green holder. It’s the perfect shade of green to match my other fall decor.
The store only had two of them left in stock. I would have purchased more to use in other spots in our home. They have a pleasant scent to them that is labeled as eucalyptus. Next to the Dollar Tree candle, I added an aged bronze taper candle holder.
The symmetrical look came together easily by using the candle holders and decorative orbs that I had on hand. Using dollar store and a thrift store find makeover kept the cost low.
For the fireplace, more of the decorative orbs are positioned around a set of Candle Holders that got a makeover last year.
The combination of coral, green, and cream colored candles works well for the vision I have for my fall décor. The early fall mantel gives a nod to the coming season.
As we get closer to fall, I’ll change out a couple of the candles with some small pumpkins and maybe add some leaves.
