There’s nary a nip in the air, and there probably won’t be for months, but with the start of school and the arrival of the fall issues of my favorite magazines and home decor catalogs, I can’t stop thinking about fall decorating.

Pumpkins and rustling leaves and dried flowers and burlap and acorns.

I’ll wait until at least September to haul them out and decorate, but it’s not too early to start collecting inspiration.

60 Fall Mantel Decorating Ideas

Today, I’m sharing 60 fall mantel decorating ideas from some of my fellow bloggers.

We’ll start with one of my favorites from a few years ago.

Maybe something more muted, along the lines of the rustic chippy aqua mantel I did a few years back.

Like I said, I’ve been collecting inspiration, on my Fabulous Fall Mantels Pinterest board.
