13 Fireplace Mantel Decorating Ideas for the Whole Year

One of my favorite things to decorate in our farmhouse is our fireplace mantels.  Below, I am sharing my fireplace mantel decorating ideas for the whole year. From Christmas to Spring and everything in between :).  I hope you will be inspired to decorate your fireplace mantel throughout the seasons.  If you don’t have a fireplace mantel at your home many of these ideas would work well for any bookshelf to decorate.

Fall Fireplace Mantel Decorating Ideas

This year for our fall farmhouse tour I could not wait for pumpkins to arrive so I used the color orange as my inspiration for our living room mantel.  We love to decorate our home with homemade items.  We made the fall garland and Pallet Wreath Ourselves.
