Can you believe I received a Christmas issue of one of my monthly magazines in the mail recently! And here I was still looking for autumn mantel ideas!
My autumn mantel is now complete, but I still need to edit the photos so I will be sharing it next week.
I did want to share with you 12 gorgeous mantels just in case you still haven’t styled your own mantel. You will find a variety of styles and themes. In fact, there is even autumn mantel ideas if your mantel doesn’t happen to sit over a fireplace!
Be sure to click the links below each photo to see each mantel in detail and pin the mantels that you love directly from the source! These ladies deserve all of the credit for their creations and I appreciate them allowing me to share their autumn mantel ideas with you today!
I have a pinable image at the bottom of this post if you want to save the collection and visit (and pin) each mantel when you have more time.
Now, lets get started!

Berry Farmhouse Indeed
It is no secret that Farmhouse is a favorite decorating style. Marianne from Songbird nails the look even though she doesn’t have a traditional mantel over a fireplace. She styled a shelf that includes so many fun farmhouse elements and the red berry wreath against the shiplap wall is the star of the show!
