I was in Target last week, and of course I had to stop and see what was new in the dollar area of Target. Too much, as it turns out. I went a little crazy grabbing up the beautiful, and cheap, fall decor pieces in stock right now. The fall decor pieces all looked collected but cohesive, and I can reuse a few of the pieces for my winter/Christmas decorations too! Keep reading to learn more about styling a fall mantel with Target Dollar Spot decor.
This is NOT a sponsored post, I just got really excited about the things I found in the Dollar Spot. But, Target, if you’re listening and want to sponsor your girl, holla at me!
Watch this short video to see how I built the mantel design, then keep reading to learn more about the individual pieces. I publish new videos to my YouTube channel every week, so be sure to check out my other fun videos!
The first item I spotted were these beautiful ceramic houses. They look like they belong in the Hearth & Hand collection, don’t they? I didn’t even realize they came with built-in LED lights until I got home. Bonus!
The “welcome” decal is part of a two-pack of decals from Target as well. I just applied it to a pine wood pallet from Consumer Crafts. I think I might use the other decal on our front door, but I haven’t decided yet.
No fall mantel of mine would be complete without plenty of pumpkins. I found the wood slat pumpkin in the Dollar Spot, and added the galvanized metal “Thankful” (from Dollar Tree!) with adhesive dots.
These tiny fabric pumpkins just happen to coordinate with the mantel AND our living room decor. I bought one in each of the four available colors: navy, light grey, dark grey, and light teal.
The dark grey fabric pumpkin and a white Funkin are nestled into a window pane plaid blanket scarf from the Dollar Spot. They are all tucked into the wooden crate I burned and painted a few years ago.
I hung this floral bunting along the width of the mantel. The bunting is actually reversible and spells out “GATHER” on the flip side. I added the string of battery-powered twine LED lights to the top of the bunting as well.
Lastly, I finished off the fireplace mantel with a few pieces of my own: some large wicker pumpkins, a mason jar of wheat, and my farmhouse bead garland. I would love this mantel even more if I could make up my mind what to do with the fireplace surround and that awful brick. I usually hate the idea of painting brick, but I think white brick and a black surround would lighten this whole area up so nicely. What do you think?

The bunting is very beautiful and functional too. I would love to make one for my own home. Thanks for inspiring and hosting lovely link parties.

Lovely! Those ceramic houses are too cute, and I bet they look even better at night all lit up.
