Decorating A Halloween Mantle

Hi Everyone,

I hope this week has been going well for you. Slowly but surely I have been getting my house ready for Halloween. One of my favorite things to decorate in my home for any holiday is my fireplace mantle. I thought it would be fun to share some photos of my Spooky Halloween Mantle today.

Every year I try to change it up  a bit. This was my design from two years ago….

I went a little nuts with the faux spider webs that year. I mixed in some creepy Halloween decor with my every day decor.

And here is last year’s Halloween Mantle……

Last year I lost most of the spider webs and added some eerie photos of long-lost relatives taken after a night out on the town. AAAAh, although sometimes I feel like one of those ghastly ghouls when I wake up in the morning, they are photos I printed off the internet!

The white Styrofoam pumpkins were Dollar Tree finds that I painted  and added some “Spooky” letters to. The vintage skeleton images were from The Graphics Fairy. I printed them on card stock, tore the edges and displayed “as is”. Pretty simple.

This year I went a little more “vintage glam”  with a bit of glitter….

It’s no secret that I am a mercury glass fiend. I am always adding to my collection even though I tell myself I have enough!

I found these beautiful glittered “haunted” houses on clearance at Marshall’s last year after Halloween. I also nabbed a set of three mercury glass macabre votive holders on clearance for $2! You can’t beat that deal with a stick!

The large pillar candles are from Michael’s, bought on sale last year. I think they look great on my everyday chunky mercury glass candle holders.

The bottle is new this year, bought at T.J Maxx and a closeup of one of the $2 candle holders from last year’s clearance bin.

I fell in love with this domed, black glittered haunted house when I saw it at TJ Maxx. It was not on sale, it was not real cheap but I HAD to have it. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself and at $14.99 it did not break the bank.

The banner is a Do-It-Yourself Craft kit I bought a while back.

And here is the full on view of my Halloween Mantle. I love the creepy old man. He talks and his black crow sidekick flaps his wings and cackles.

And that, my friends is the end of the tour. Next week I will be posting some more pics of my home dressed up for Halloween (I hope I am done decorating by then!) If you want to tour my home all duded up for Halloween last year, hop on over to my post A Halloween Home Tour
