Halloween mantel decor with pumpkins,spiders and more

I have some fun Halloween mantel decor to share with you today!

Boo it yourself

As a part of the Michaels Makers Challenge this month, they wanted us to have fun with their Halloween section and Boo it yourself! I decided to raid the aisle and have fun decorating my faux mantel.

Halloween mantel decor and faux fireplace

It was fun to combine items from the floral and Halloween aisles, and some decor I already had around the house to make a fun and spooky mantel.  Even if you only have a faux mantel, it’s a great place to decorate and add vignettes, like this mantel I did a few years ago,

Or this one with a fun ghostly garland for Halloween mantel decor!

As a decorating base,I started with grapevine wreath roll in the floral section and some faux spider webbing.

I love how the grapevine has some naturally awkward twists and turns that lend very well to looking a bit creepy.

Layered with the spider webbing and the fairy lights, it looks really cool. I even added a few faux spiders that may have crawled over from the little spider sanctuary I’ll share tomorrow.

I love using books for height. These spooky book covers that I made a few years ago would have worked well.

On the left side, I added a felt cat cut-out, and some vintage books, and copper painted pumpkins.

Yes, I painted real pumpkins with copper craft paint. I am super dedicated like that. 🙂

There were other felt cut outs like bats there as well. Michaels also had these fun glittery crows,and I ended up getting two so I had one for each side. I really love how the fairy lights look, even during the day they add something extra!

I used a gold metallic craft paint to paint a birch section from the wood section to use as a place for him to perch on.

And the other side I placed lanterns with a few lanterns from the Halloween aisle.

    1. Thanks Jillian! I have two since we don’t have a real fireplace. One was a road side find, 😉 and the other I bought at the flea market.
