Styling a Fall Mantel and Hearth doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate. Using some dollar store and thrift store find items, plus some diy projects kept the cost low for my fall mantel decor.

Even though it’s not feeling a bit like fall here in Charleston, I’ve brought out my fall decor. One of the first things I like to decorate for each season is our mantel and hearth.
Styling a Fall Mantel & Hearth
I used lots of dollar store items to keep this decor budget friendly. The flowers are all from Dollar Tree. I removed the stems from the flowers before placing them on the mantel. The same neutral pumpkins are also from Dollar Tree. I’ve had the coral pillar candles for a couple of years and bring them out each fall.
Creating two pumpkin topiaries to anchor the mantel was another dollar store project. I shared the easy tutorial for how to make them recently.
I used blue tapered candles that go well with the topiaries. I have them in crystal holders with a small piece of coral ribbon tied around the base.
Having a fireplace in Charleston isn’t very practical, but lots of homes here have them for those few weeks a year that a fire is nice. It does make for a nice place to add decor when not in use. The dough bowl is one I found at Goodwill a few years ago. Last year, just as fall was ending, I also found the large pumpkin at Goodwill.
The coral and blue that I used on the mantel was inspired by these painted pumpkins and painted tray DIY project.
The grapevine wreath on the mirror is simple since I used lots of items on the mantel.
