Before you know it Halloween will be here, make sure you’re prepared with these spooky and spectacular decorating ideas!
Celebrate the fall season and holidays by decorating your fireplace, the focal piece of your home. The mantel is the perfect place to display your holiday spirit. Use these autumn essentials to create the perfect Halloween masterpiece on your mantel!
Holiday Banner: Grab the attention of your guest with a Halloween banner draped from your mantel. ‘Happy Halloween’ and ‘Trick or Treat’ are great options! These banners can be store bought, or DIY! Simple to make and easy to hang, all while making a statement.
Pumpkins: Pumpkins come in all sizes so no matter how big or how small your mantle is, you can find the perfect fit! Dress up your pumpkins by painting them in colors and patterns to match either your interior design or your Halloween theme. Tired of the same old black and orange? Add in splashes of greens and purples to add more color and draw attention to your fireplace.
Ribbon and Webbing: Find some seasonal ribbon and webbing to drape behind your pumpkins and banner. Sparkly ribbon can hang from the sides of the mantle and wrap around your pumpkin stems. Get in the spooky spirit by adding a fake spider into the mix, perfecting the webbing.
Halloween Wreath: To complete your holiday mantel add a Halloween themed wreath above your fireplace. To DIY your wreath, spray paint it to match your theme (silver, black, green all look great!) and add some spooky figurines such as ghosts, skeletons and bats. Add a fun and short message such as ‘BOO!” to finish off the look!
At the end of the night when the trick or treating has slowed down and the party has ended, gather around the fireplace with your family and friends to enjoy the last few minutes of Halloween while admiring your perfectly haunting and fun mantel.
