Halloween Mantel

It was time to change my Fallish mantel to a Halloween mantel. Since things have been going in a black and white direction in my home for Halloween, I decided to continue that trend on the mantel.

The black candlestick holders are from the master bedroom, which means I’ll be changing the decor in there a bit too.

This black one is also from the master bedroom. The other candlestick holder seems to pop up on the mantel a lot, so I’m sure you’ve seen it before. I though of painting it, but decided against it for the time being.

The pictures both came from Tai Pan Trading a few years ago. Notice the spiders I glittered last year, scattered around the mantel.

The candelabra was just bought from D.I. and painted black. I think the orange pumpkin adds just the right amount of color to the mantel to keep it from being predictable and boring.

Then I added the “Trick or Treat” sign to the wreath above the window.

I like how it looked but felt like it was still missing something.

So I added some bias tape to the front of the mantel with double sided tape and I also added a decal to the front. The decal is from that big (secret) sale my friend invites me to a couple times a year. Thanks Jeanine!

I really love the way it looks now. Almost elegant, don’t you think? Have you dressed up your mantel for Halloween yet?

    I like the mantel, but tell me, where does one find a window like that or something similar? I would really like one for my mantel, but I don’t have a resource–no old homes or barns that I can scour. 🙂 Suggestions?
