Halloween Home Decor Mantel Inspiration

Cool Finds: Halloween Mantel Inspiration

If you haven’t started to decorate for the Halloween season yet, one perfect place to get started is your mantel. Usually rather prominent, it’s a great focal point for your family room, and easily changeable. No matter how you like to decorate it for the rest of the year, it won’t take too much effort to turn your mantel into a great Halloween talking piece!

Here are some fun Halloween mantels that we think are fabulous!

That green is one of my favourite colours — and a great one for Halloween! Think cauldrons, witches, Frankenstein, and zombies! This simple mantle plays around with some great black items for contrast on the bright green and white features. See more at Amy’s Casablanca.

I might be in love with this mirror, friends. What a funky look! I’m also pretty smitten with the spider-esque and twine-wrapped pumpkins too! Check out the look at Hi Sugarplum!.

Such a neat way to display bunting and photos — on an old shutter and window frame! See more from Kaminski’s Creations.

Autumn art mixed with skull and spider accents make this a transitional mantel display. Once Halloween is over, you can just remove the more spooky-centric items and keep the Fall aspect. Great work from Sweet Something Designs!

Doesn’t that black gauze material make for an eerie mantel display? Make me think of cobwebs, and spooky abandoned mansions from the movies. This fantastic look was created by My Sister’s Suitcase.

Crooked pictures add a cute flair to this black and white themed mantel by Tidbits & Twine.

I really love that little skull garland! So many fun ideas I’d like to implement at home! The only trick… to find a place to store everything else that’s hanging out on the mantel right now! (So many collectibles end up there… antiques galore, folks.)

Here are a few of my pointers for decorating your Halloween mantel:

  • Choose a theme that you can work around — Spooky? Silly? Vintage? Modern?
  • Pick a focal piece for the mantel and layer smaller pieces in front and around it — try a big mirror or piece of art, surrounded by candles, pumpkins, and other Halloween décor items
  • Go beyond the mantel — Hang garland, decorate all around the base of the fireplace (if there is one), add spider webs, bat figures, and more!
