Decorating your fireplace is a fantastic way to enhance your interior space and get your home ready for the autumn season. There are several tips and tricks for achieving the fall-inspired fireplace of your dreams. Here are a few fun ways to decorate your fireplace for fall.
Spice Up Your Mantel
The first way to decorate your fireplace for fall is to spice up your mantel. If you don’t already have a mantel but would like one, you can find a guide to installing a fireplace mantel to help you get started. The mantel is a major feature of a fireplace that allows you to showcase your personal belongings. So spice it up a bit with some fun fall decorations. You can take a fall family portrait, frame it, and display it on the mantel, along with some other fun items. For example, include fall-inspired figurines, cornucopias, pinecones, little scarecrows, fall leaves, and more.
Include Fall Candles
Including fall candles is another creative way to decorate your fireplace for the upcoming season. Fall scents are popular, and including them as you decorate your fireplace is a wonderful way to fully achieve that autumn ambience we all know and love. You can add fall candles to your mantel décor, or you can even add a beautiful display of candles inside your fireplace. However, you’ll want to be sure to remove the candles if you decide to turn your fireplace on. Candlelight adds a cozy, warm charm to any interior space and helps to ring in the fall season.
Add Holiday Décor
The third fireplace decorating tip for this fall is adding seasonal holiday décor. The major holidays that occur during the autumn months are Halloween and Thanksgiving, so you can use these occasions as inspiration for your décor. If you have a family with children, the kids will adore some fun and spooky Halloween decorations around the fireplace, like ghosts, bats, witches, brooms, mummies, and the like. Pumpkins and jack-o’-lanterns are also a lovely touch for the season. You can carve some pumpkins with the kids, or you can opt for artificial ones if you want to avoid the mess of pumpkin seeds getting everywhere.
Now that you know some fun fireplace decorating ideas for the fall, you can use these tips and tricks to turn your home into an autumn-inspired haven. Get creative with your choices and have some fun with the process, then you’ll be ready for all the exciting fall festivities.
