BOO!!! How fun it this cutie mantel? I just love the simplicity and it was so easy to create. I wanted it to be festive, and simple without a lot of “stuff” I’ve done so many different looks over the years but this is probably my most favorite.

This display was so easy and only required a few elements. I found these cute, inexpensive pumpkins at Target. They come with batteries and are lightweight and inexpensive. They have several shapes and sizes and the key is to get a variety of sizes, shapes and styles. Also At least 5-7 pumpkins are good for creating the impact but just a few would be just as pretty.
I spray painted all the pumpkins with Rustoleum 2X flat white paint. I took 2 light coats giving time in between letting each coat dry.
Find a branch in your yard that has a curved shape to it so you can anchor it to flow along and up to give it some height. I wanted it to have the green leaves on it to tie in with the fern greenery on the mantelpiece.
Place the pumpkins in various levels. I added a little wooden riser to get some height and them varied the flow of sizes creating a more asymmetrical arrangement. Then I tucked in pieces of ferns to drape over the edge in between the pumpkins. I added the tall faux branch in a clay pot to bring a forest vibe to the fireplace.
Add lighting for ambience. I put fairy lights on the branch, batteries i the pumpkins and battery operated candles in the fireplace.
I love how the lights cast shadows on the ceiling, it makes it even more spooky and dramatic.
