For this year’s fall mantel, I went in a completely different direction., an effortless boho fall mantel. I wanted something that felt relaxed with a natural color palette but with some pops of color. Hobby Lobby had exactly what I was looking for! I kind of decided on a whim to go to Hobby Lobby after her doctor’s appointment. She and I had so much fun!
I had no idea what I wanted when I went to the store and was almost ready to give up. Then, hiding behind tons of other garland I saw this pop of navy blue. We pulled it out and it was perfect! I had no idea how I was going to style it but it was too pretty to leave at the store. So I grabbed some bead garlands that I had no idea how I was going to use and headed to checkout.
Then everything sat in the bags for about two weeks before I pulled them out. I honestly just had no idea what I wanted to do with it all. Slowly this boho mantel came together. Using items from around my house, from the bridal shower we just threw, and my Cricut it was pretty effortless.
The adorable fox was from Target. He was a paint-it-yourself ceramic fox. I’d had him for a few years and finally painted him. He turned out so cute! The small brown vase, candles, and candle holders are from the Target Dollar Spot. I’ve included links below to similar ones. The books are from my antique book collection.
The pumpkins and lantern are from Hobby Lobby. So many things I have are from there somehow. I used my Cricut to make the canvas. This is my second one. The first one we thought was too Christmassy looking because I used red instead of orange. So I grabbed a new canvas and made a new one. It’s a combination of flocked iron-on and acrylic paints. Super easy!
I just really love the vibe in my living room now. I even went to Ikea and bought new cream-colored curtains. It’s so relaxed and it makes me want to curl up on my couch under blankets. My living room is so light and airy now and ready for fall.
This really was effortless once I quit overthinking it. Look around your home and see what you have first. It might surprise you that you already have pieces to make a fall boho mantel.
