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

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.
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.
On the other side, I used a vintage metal box for height, and put the other crow and some cute glass bottles from the Halloween aisle. I like how the glass glows with the fairy lights behind them for Halloween mantel decor.
On the floor, I placed a trio of pumpkins on some vintage and new suitcases and a pumpkin on an urn for height.
And the other side I placed lanterns with a few lanterns from the Halloween aisle.
