Decorated Fall Shelves {Faux Mantel}

I have been so excited to decorate for fall this year!!!

It's my first time being in my own home for fall, and my first time spending it with hubby :)

 Thus, I kicked our rears-in-gear to finally do something with the big open wall space in our family room. I bought three different sized floating shelves from home depot to fill the space.

Side note: I originally bought floating shelves in a similar size/style from Target. DO NOT BUY THOSE SHELVES! The first one we put on the wall literally broke right oftf. They were very cheap quality! I love me some target....but for a floating shelf, get something with a little better quality!

Here are my shelves:

Ah, it makes me so happy every time I look at them :)

I made the fall leaf wreath with dollar store supplies. The two little pumpkins on the left are from the dollar store. The right pumpkin I got as a gift from my RA senior year, and the three glitter candles I got on sale from Michaels. (I love how they put all their fall decor on sale in the beginning of October still!!!) The window pane I got from a local shop, and the Happy Halloween bunting I made last year.


Love this little banner! I'm already planning a Thanksgiving one so I can just swap them out after the 31st!

The other two shelves I kept simple. I bought two adorable little pumpkins from a local farm, and the candles were from Joanns. A few dollar store fall leaves help make it festive (minus the dust. yikes)

The last shelf has (from left to right) my Tree Embroidery, three pumpkins from the dollar store that I spray painted copper, my felt jack-o-lantern I made last year, an adorable owl lantern I got for $2.50 at target, and my simple felt pumpkin.

These little decorations just make my heart so happy for the season :) I don't have a mantel to decorate, but these will do just fine for me!!
