creative fall decorating idea

In transitioning from summer to fall there just aren’t any real pumpkins in the stores yet. It’s a great time to be creative with using faux or fake pumpkins to give a slight suggestion for the season ahead. You know…the cozy season with sweaters, throws, changing leaves, heirloom pumpkins, spiced pumpkin latte and pumpkin everything!

You’ve probably seen the heirloom pumpkins spilling out of a fireplace before. I think that the first time I saw this concept was years ago in Country Living magazine. You can do this with any pumpkins but I LOVE my velvet pumpkins from LoveFeastShop and have been displaying them for several years now. For a pretty tablescape idea, you might want to read THIS POST. In fact, if you’re looking for all of my FALL INSPIRATION, you’ll find that conveniently located in THIS SECTION. Kind of like a mini magazine.

Here are a few tips for creating the look of pumpkins spilling out of a fireplace.

Creative Fall Mantel Decorating Idea

  • Gather any and all of your faux (or real, later on) pumpkins.
  • Grab a couple of bed pillows that perhaps aren’t in great shape and you’re thinking of replacing anyway.
  • Stack up the pillows one on top of the other against the wall.
  • Starting from the back wall, lay a few larger pumpkins on the pillows first.
  • Layer pumpkins from bottom to top allowing them to have the look of spilling out one in front of the other.
  • Fill in with some small pumpkins in the gaps.

I went with a variety of velvet pumpkins in pink shades and I love how they look with my rug. Not much else is needed and the huge vintage copper bucket holds birch logs as firewood. The fur trimmed pumpkins are so unique and whimsical and Bartley is caught in the act of checking them out! Remember…you can do this with any pumpkins, but the velvet pumpkins are truly elegant and they make everyone happy!

I have invested in a couple Hot Sqwash ones and have given a few as gifts. They are beautiful, great quality and go with a number of decorating styles. Others I have picked up randomly. One of my favorites is to pile them in an old wooden trencher. This is a great give away…thank you🧡
