Here are some fun ideas that you can use to spice up your fireplace for fall.

Pumpkins come in many shapes, sizes, and colors, so you can get really get creative and choose the ones that best suit your tastes. You can also add jack-o-lanterns to your mantle to celebrate Halloween. If you’re concerned about keeping pumpkins so close to the fire, you can also opt for fake pumpkins.
Add seasonal plants to your mantle.
A fall-themed plant display is a chic way to decorate your fireplace for the fall season. Bouquets featuring yellow, orange, and red shades will immediately evoke the fall season. Small gourds and pumpkins also have a cozy fall feel. Consider using faux plants in addition to live plants to create a fall tableau.
Faux plants are often easier to use for a fireplace display because they don’t need water or sunlight. You can also place decorative accents between the plants to add visual interest. Things like small vases and jars look great as part of a broader mantle display.
Use copper or bronze metal accents.
When choosing metal accessories for your fireplace, you’ll want to use warm tones to create that cozy fall vibe. There are many ways to add copper or bronze metal accents to your fireplace. On the mantle, consider using metal candlesticks in these shades.
In the fireplace itself, you can add andirons and firebacks. Both of these pieces are designed to keep the logs securely in the fireplace and control the heat from the fire. They come in many different colors and styles, so you can choose an option that best matches your decor. You can even purchase pieces with leaf accents to create a true fall feeling.

To make your fireplace area feel a bit cozier for fall, spread out your favorite rug on the floor near the hearth.
