My favorite thing this Fall season is navy colored pumpkins. There is just something about the navy color beside orange and white pumpkins that just pop! This year I decided to create a Fall pumpkin mantel using all three of these colors.

The mantel in my home is big, rustic, and very long. The mantel itself is from an mid-1800’s barn and is 8 feet long. It is grand and beautiful but also very hard to photograph and get all of it in one shot. I hope you enjoy these photos either way.
I already had the orange and white pumpkins in my Fall storage containers from previous years, so the only thing I needed to include were navy pumpkins.
I could have shopped online, or browsed several stores to find enough navy colored pumpkins, but honestly, at the time I was shopping for pumpkins I was also pulling together the last few items for my daughter’s wedding, so I needed to pull my Fall pumpkin mantel decor off inexpensively and quickly.
A trip to Dollar Tree and I quickly filled a basket with several sizes of white and orange pumpkins. A couple of bottles of navy and copper colored acrylic paint and one afternoon later, I had the navy colored pumpkins I needed for my Fall mantel.
The lanterns on the mantel I purchased from Hobby Lobby back in March for my daughter’s wedding, which was delayed because of the pandemic until later this year. They provided the perfect foundation for my long rustic mantel and look fabulous filled with multi-colored pumpkins instead of candles.
Pumpkins and lanterns combined for a beautiful Fall mantel.
This is the first year that I have used just pumpkins and fall leaves on the mantel. I really like how simple it looks but still festive for the season.
In another post I will share how I made the leaf garland. Be sure to come back this week to see how I made it from paper bags!
While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.”
