Reds, golds, and yellows give a very warm and cozy touch to your home, and this is probably why so many people go all-out on their Thanksgiving decorations. You don’t need to spend so much money on an elaborate and elegant Thanksgiving mantle, though. Here are some simple mantle decoration ideas that you can enjoy even after your guests have left with full bellies.
All you need for a great Thanksgiving mantle are easily found materials and some imagination. Start by picking up pine cones, berries, leaves, and twigs from your yard or in the park. Wash them well and scatter them all over the mantle, or use them to embellish candles, dishes, and small vases. Add Indian corn, gourds, and mini-pumpkins in different shades of orange and yellow. For finishing touches, use wood or brass silver candle holders, or different-sized candles in fall colors. You can also include combinations of potted topiaries and beaded fruit.
