I love decorating for Halloween and since I recently moved I decided to skip Fall decorating and go straight to Halloween. I was so happy when I was finally able to locate my Halloween totes. This mantel is very different from the one in my old home, but I’m just happy to have one to decorate. I like to go with a loose theme when decorating my mantel so this Halloween I decided on an Orange & Black Halloween Mantel.
There’s nothing wrong with using things over again, just use them in a different way and in different areas of your home. I bought this glittery haunted house at Michael’s a few years ago.
I found this candelabra at a thrift store years ago and spray painted it black. I use it a lot in my Halloween decorating. The framed Trick or Treat was printed off from The Graphs Fairy a few years ago. I layered mats to give it more dimension.
Simple things from around your home can be put together to fit your theme. You just need to use your imagination, like a doily as a spider web.
I’m not allowed to put any holes in the walls of my rental. What? I’ll still be able to hang things (we’ll get more into that later), I hung these light plates and frame above the mantel shelf using sticky tack. You can see how I made the Spooky word art in a previous post.
Here’s a close up of that owl plate. I like when things are subtle and you have to take a closer look.
The banner adds a little more color and gives balance to the mantel.
Have you decorated a mantel or faux mantel for Fall or Halloween yet?
Great job Leanne! Loving the whole spooky look! Specially the plates! They look amazing with the owl and pumpkin impressions on them! The way you have used them as wall art! Really impressive! 🙂 Keep inspiring us! 🙂
