hobby lobby cart full of fall fireplace mantel decor

Fall is coming!

Hobby Lobby never fails to deliver great home decor pieces at really affordable prices! I was so inspired by their new decor coming out that I decided to style five totally different fireplace mantels. It’s never too early to do some fall decorating!

Hip Tip:Β Before you shop, make sure to check out our shopping tips to save big at Hobby Lobby so you never pay full price again!


1. Golden yellow fall mantel

  1. Yellow Honeycomb Straight Candles
  2. Rustic Brown Metal Candle Holder With Handle
  3. Black Tall Metal Candle Holder – Small
  4. Thankful & Blessed Wood Wall Decor
  5. Pom-Pom Bush – yellow
  6. White Pinecone Candle Holder
  7. Small White Pumpkin
  8. White Enamel Pitcher

You’ll probably catch me saying this frequently throughout this post (since I just love everything fall so much), but this styled mantel is my absolute favorite!

I love the neutral whites and wood paired with subtle pops of golden yellow and the perfect white pumpkin. Hobby Lobby really does have some amazing faux florals, so I was thrilled to scoop up these bright yellow pom bushes to complement this farmhouse pitcher – they all look even better in person!

And can we just talk about this gorgeous Thankful and Blessed wood sign?! 😍

It reminds me of some popular signs I’ve seen on Instagram, but a whole lot more affordable! This is a transitional piece that you can totally keep up all year long too so it makes the investment more than worth it. Plus, there’s something to be thankful and blessed about 365 days a year anyways. πŸ˜‰

I absolutely love finding unique items that also have an equal amount of texture and dimension, so I’m basically obsessing over these golden-yellow honeycomb candles… yes, I said honeycomb! And I can’t get enough of these stunning white pinecone candleholders (I want them ALL)! Plus, they’re perfect to keep up throughout winter also.


2. Halloween fall mantel

  1. Happy Harvest Wreath Wood Wall Decor
  2. Carved Crow Looking Right
  3. Black Thin Frame Round Metal Mirror
  4. Black Taper Candle – 15″
  5. Matte Black Candle Holder – Small
  6. Small Orange Pumpkin
  7. Black & White Felt Ball Garland

The next mantel I put together was inspired by this perfect fall sign and it’s less than $8! 😱 I love the simple calligraphy fall message and pop of orange. It’s easy enough to add to (and remove from) your mantel once it’s time for winter decor. Plus, it looked so dear next to the carved wooden crow I found. 😍

I balanced the other side of the mantel with some gorgeous tall black taper candles (which are less than $2 each) and a faux orange pumpkin to add more pops of fall color, drama, and a subtle bit of spookiness for Halloween. πŸ˜‰

I love this timeless round mirror that Hobby Lobby always keeps in stock. It’s the perfect staple piece for this styled mantel and something you can keep up on your fireplace all year round as you decorate for each season. It’s surely a piece that will never go out of style, too.


3. Neutral farmhouse fall mantel

  1. Black Beard Wheat Bundle
  2. Diamond Frame Metal Wall Sconce
  3. Cotton Wreath
  4. Ivory Votive LED Candles
  5. Rustic Galvanized Metal Pitcher
  6. Cream Braided Pumpkin – Medium
  7. Green Distressed Pumpkin – Small
  8. White Pumpkins & Pinecones Glass Candle Holder
  9. Thankful & Blessed Wood Wall Frame – 4″ x 6″

My goal for this farmhouse mantel was to source everything neutral, slightly rustic, weathered, and totally gorgeous with the perfect touches of fall. I love this wooden thankful and blessed picture frame – much like the large artwork that I shared above – but on a smaller scale, so it allows for a different focal point for this mantel.

If you haven’t noticed already, to keep holiday decorating simple, I like to incorporate at least one or two transitional items. So when I saw this wall of farmhouse-inspired wall sconces, I was so excited! Plus, they require no electricity, so they’re essentially hassle-free – just change out the ivory votive LED candles as needed!

Then I finished off the mantel with some neutral pumpkins, pine cones, and some beautiful black beard wheat that totally screams fall!


4. Minimal boho fall mantel

various boho inspired fall hobby lobby decor pieces

  1. Uva Stalks
  2. Pumpkin Patch Wood Wall Decor
  3. Tapered Glass Vase
  4. Distressed White Scalloped Frame – 4″ x 6″
  5. Pumpkin With Gold Stem
  6. Beaded Wood Candle Holder – Large
  7. Vanilla Pillar Candle – 3″ x 4″
  8. Beaded Wood Candle Holder – Small

This wooden pumpkin patch sign was one of the first items that grabbed my attention at Hobby Lobby on my most recent shopping trip, and the most incredible part about it is that it’s only $11.99 (when on sale for 40% off). What?! 😱 Plus, I love the fall sentiments – don’t we all look forward to apple cider, hayrides, and hot cocoa when we go to the pumpkin patch?! Yes, please!

Since my boho fireplace mantel already had a great focal point, I found some items that were super fun and simple. I sourced neutral tones so I didn’t take away from the gorgeous wood sign and focused more on the texture of the items than anything else. I’m so in love with these beaded candleholders – another perfect transitional piece to keep on your mantel all year round.

The gray ceramic pumpkin was the perfect modern touch that this mantel needed, and for only $2.99 I definitely wasn’t passing that one up! I balanced the other side of the mantel with subtle but totally show-stopping tall uva stalks and a scalloped picture frame for your favorite family photo. 😍 Most of these pieces can be kept on the mantel all year long, but styled together with the gorgeous pumpkin patch sign, they make the perfect fall mantel for any modern home.


5. Fall-obsessed mantel

  1. Purely Pumpkin Mason Jar Potpourri
  2. Glitter Spiders – Large
  3. Orange Hop & Leaf Wreath
  4. LED Ghost
  5. Birch Votive LED Candles
  6. Happy Halloween Glitter Banner
  7. White Velvet Pumpkin
  8. Orange Speckled Pumpkin

I saved this fall mantel for last on purpose because if you’re just totally over the top, fall obsessed and you’re not afraid of color, this mantel is just for you! With a little bit of Halloween, black and orange, and everything fall, this mantel will fill your big, fall heart. 😍

From this gorgeous jar of potpourri, an LED ghost, pumpkins, and even black glitter spiders, this fall mantel has it all (including great prices to go with it).

I even found these unique, birch LED candles (that come in a pack of 3) to finish off the look and add a little bit of rustic charm. Plus, you can keep them on the mantel once winter comes.

And let’s not forget the two main focal points! The stunning orange hop & leaf wreath and Happy Halloween glitter banner are what pull the entire space together. Without them, this gorgeous mantel just wouldn’t even be the same (or as show-stopping). πŸ˜‰

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hoping you can head in another day this week!

  2. Marsha

    Thank you !! I love to decorate but I really stink at putting things together! I love it that I know exactly how to place it and where to get it! This should be a new feature each month for us decor challenged folks ! Lol

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Marsha! Thanks for the kind comment and suggestion! I’ll be sure to pass this along to the team!

    • Marissa

      I totally agree. Love this so much

  3. Bridgette Spence

    • Sara

      I’m so glad you loved this post so much, Bridgette!

  4. Shop624

    what’s the best deal for thankful and blessed?

  5. Brooke

    You guys are so awesome! Bummer, I wish I had a mantel. However, I could definitely use some of these ideas on my foyer table! Thanks a bunch!

    • Sara

      That’s an awesome idea, Brooke! Please share a picture with us if you do, I’d love to see it!

      • Brooke

        Sure will!

    • Alecia_D

      That’s my plan too, going to decorate the table in my entry hall.

    • sara

      I installed a mantel over one of my couches, love it!

  6. Elizabeth M

    Wall decor was 50% off this week as were florals. Wait until next week to get the deal again.

  7. Michelle

    Thanks for the great ideas! I love all of your arrangements and will definitely incorporate them into our new home. We won’t have a mantel, but I could make it work on the buffet. πŸ‘ Thanks again; I would love to see more decorating posts. πŸ˜‰

  8. Ma

    Love this series. The front porch post and this. Helps give ideas in an affordable way.

  9. Erin

    Best post ever! I would love to see this each season

    • Sara

      Aw, thank you so much for the sweet compliment Erin!

  10. Toni R

    So…almost $70 for mantel decor…..am I missing the β€œdeal” part??

    • Sam

      Yes, I miss the old hip2save where there actually were “deals”! Actual couponing and deals you couldn’t get everyday.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for your feedback. There are a few different options listed above to grab the price point that works best for you. Hope that helps!

    • Mel

      Well, this is just an idea. You don’t have to buy everything at once and you don’t have to buy everything pictured. Wait til they have the items on sale and / or use a HL coupon. Check Dollar Tree, Big Lots or even Dollar General to see if there’s anything similar to replace.
      Why not think outside the box instead of complaining?

      • Rachael

        I think anyone can have their own opinion.

  11. Shelly B

    I never know how to put things together. Thank you SO much for doing this post! I can go and copy this easy peasy! PLEASE consider doing these as regular posts! LOVE this!!!

    • Mel

      I Agree!! I am horrible at decorating and only did it for Christmas! Now thanks to Lina & crew, I have year round seasonal decor that makes my home much more cheery!

    • Wren

      Also creatively challenged here!! πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Thanks H2S!

  12. Shan

    I absolutely love this post!! I had a gift card that I was able to utilize!!

    Please, oh please, do a Christmas themed mantel display post this year as wellπŸ€—

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I love that idea, Shan! Thanks for the request! I’ll be sure to pass it along!

  13. Rebecca

    About to move to a new house and while I won’t actually miss our leaky fireplace, I will miss our mantle! Was the centerpiece of all our holiday decorations. Not really sure what I’ll do with it now, need to buy more furniture I suppose lol.

    • ann

      I had the same issue when I moved. I bought an antique dresser, put it in my family room against the one wall and put a large mirror over it. I put different wreaths on the mirror for different seasons and decorate the top of the dresser with different holiday/seasonal decor.

  14. GisMom

    Absolutely LOVE all of these decorating ideas! I agree with others- it’d be great to have a post like this seasonally.

    • sue

      I love both the deals and the decorating ideas and the dress picks. For me, it’s all good. If you don’t like some of the clips………don’t spend your time on them..

    On a Sunday when I can’t go shop?! No!! πŸ˜‰ just kidding, super cute ideas!!

    • Liza (Hip Sidekick)

      All these ideas do make you want to run right to the store, I know, Heather! Hopefully you can make it tomorrow! πŸ˜‰

  18. MommaBear

    Hobby Lobby is amazing! Love these ideals! I snagged several pieces during the 90% off sale that can be used with every season! Just a tip for anyone that really wants a particular item, grab it, because they sell out very quickly for seasonal decor. I missed out on the large thankful and blessed last year waiting for it to go 50% lol and this year all the buffalo check rugs were sold out at my store by the beginning of August.

  19. Leila

    Fall is my favorite! I love these ideas! I actually reorganized my storage room yesterday and was deciding how soon I should put fall stuff up 😬I already have my fall porch planned πŸ˜‚

  20. Joanie

    Love love this post! Great help for those if us that see everything and cant decide which would look better!!! Thank you guys

  21. Darcilew

    Please do this again for each season! Thank you!

  22. Katie

    Love this!!! I love decorating, but I have trouble pulling it all together. This post helped so much!

  23. LeeLee

    You all do such a tremendous job in everything you do! πŸ‘πŸ‘
    In Memphis our heat index has been above 100 lately, and I am beyond ready for Fall! πŸ₯΅
    Love the decor posts! 🧑

  24. Linds

    Okay this is one of my most favorite posts!! I hate spending a lot on decorating and can never put things together! This solves both of my problems! Thank you!

  25. Valerie

    These pieces are affordable, but when putting these all together they come up to over $100 😬 I’d rather go to my local 99 cents store for something similar to this. Cute ideas tho

  26. Pao

    What a great post! I avoid HL because of their openly homophobic but Dollar Tree is in full Fall mode. Now I have great devor ideas

  27. dlwood823

    Thank you! Now I have some great ideas for decorating our mantel when we move into a new house next month. I need all the help I can get. More posts like this please!
