Welcome to this year’s Spooky Halloween Mantel Decor Display!
Hey guys! Welcome to our Spooky Halloween Mantel display.
Wow, hasn’t time just flown by! It is crazy to think that Halloween is almost here and Christmas is only around the corner.
I’m excited to show you our little Halloween Mantel Decor display for this year. It’s simple and not super glamorous but the kids love it and to me that really is the most important part about it. My boys are young, 2 and 3. So I can’t be putting up really scary things like witches, goblins and all that fun scary stuff, they may never sleep again if I do.
Spooky Halloween Mantel Decor
I really got crafty this year for our Halloween mantel decor, as you guys know and can see by the blog I write, I love to create. My first project was this large Owl silhouette that I hand drew and painted. It was very easy. I saw a few images that I liked of owls and as I looked at the images I created my own version. A far easier way to do this is to find an image you love and trace the outline. Then paint. But of course I don’t always do things the easy way for myself!
I used watercolor paints on large card stock. It was not watercolor paper because I found it to be far too expensive.
To add to the Halloween mantel decor Locky (my oldest) and I painted and made a Jack-O-Lantern Garland to hang. It was really simple to make and we had a lot of fun with this craft. He got all excited when we hung it up because he knew it was his little creation.
My favorite thing about the entire display is the Halloween Spider Family Wreath I made. I will be forever in love with the adorable Pincone Spiders I used to make it. Each spider is one of our family members and the kids love naming the spiders.
Of course it’s not Halloween and Fall without some pumpkins. I decided not to worry about painting the pumpkins because I wanted bright and fun, maybe next year I will paint them and do something more neutral.
This black lantern was found for an absolute steal. It was heavily discounted at a sale and I just had to have it.
The lantern became the home to two very cute and cheeky ghosts.
I made this “BOO” garland last minute. When I put the display together it was missing something. Our house has high ceilings so there seemed to be far too much space between the picture frame and the ceiling. So I quickly made this banner made from black card stock, chalk (the type that kids use) and black ribbon.
To finish the bottom of the fireplace I added a few pumpkins and hung the wreath from an old wine box I had laying around. Of course you just can’t call it Halloween without cob webs!
Voila! Here is it.
I will admit I really love it. It’s fun, mainly for the kids pleasure as this is really not my decor style. It’s playful and the boys enjoy showing their little friends what mummy made.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of our Halloween Mantel decor display this year.
