My 500-some-odd square foot apartment has no fireplace. I know, right?! Total bummer! But, luckily, I can try my darndest to fake a mantel with a floating shelf above the TV. This is my version of a fall mantel:
The text and idea for the Wordle came from Domestically Speaking, but I added a few more words and changed up the colors. I love the maroon-ish color for future living room walls… The frame is a Dollar Tree original.
I found these sprays at Michaels; they were 50% off, which made them $1 each! I already had the vase (another Michaels 50% off find). I added the orange ribbon to tie the vase in with the sprays. The ribbon was 2-for-$5, a pretty good deal for wide ribbon like this. The two Pottery Barn-esque pumpkins came from… the DOLLAR TREE! I also got a mottled green pumpkin, but didn’t think it would really fit here.
All together, my fall mantel cost around $6.50 and looks like a million bucks!
