Fall Mantel

Happy Monday friends! Today I'm sharing my fall mantel (yes, I had to look up the spelling...) for Layla's Fall Mantel Link Party.

Since I have shelves above my fireplace and not a true mantel (boo hoo), it's more of a fall shelf styling party for me : ) As I've mentioned before, I don't like decorating shelves because they can look cluttered so easily, so I tried to keep things simple.

I love my little halloween man. He was $5 at Home Goods a few years back. I don't like to have tons of really "halloween-y" stuff out, but I think he's cute : )

I found several of these little terracotta pumpkins last summer at Tuesday Morning on clearance for 22 cents. Score!

I really wanted to fill the tall apothecary on the right side with small white pumpkins, but I haven't seen any yet. I've heard the drought and hurricane Irene have impacted the pumpkin crop this year, so I'm assuming that's why.

I plunked some Spanish moss and a pumpkin in a soup tourene. Instant fall charm.

The only new thing I purcahsed was this bundle of wheat from Dillons (of all places).

If you'd like to see the before of the shelves in their "normal" state, just go here. Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to head over to Layla's party for more fall mantel inpiration!

Happy Autumn!
