Fall Mantel

My mantel was in need of some fall decor and yesterday it was dreary and rainy so I thought it was a perfect day to create a simple fall-themed mantel. 

The wreath I have had for years but I find a place for it every year it seems!  The window is a reoccurring part of my mantel decor...  Basically the only things I purchased for this fall mantel were the gourds which all came in one bag and the decorative wheat stems I used as vase fillers.  I picked both of those up at my local grocery store. 

I wanted to add a 'garland' of colored indian corn to the front of the mantel but I didn't want to spend the extra money so I left it alone. I may go back and add that later...we will see ;)

Anyway, it's simple but it adds a touch of fall to the room.  I love decorating for fall since it's probably my favorite season.  I'm still gathering things to add to the front porch and I've got ceramic pumpkins and fall-scented candles/air fresheners scattered through the rest of the house.  Can't wait to take the littles to the pumpkin patch (a favorite fall activity of ours!)  Happy Fall!

p.s. I'm linking up (suuuuper late) to Centsational Girl's mantel linky party!
