Halloween is one of my favorite holidays for decorating. You can really go with any theme you want – spooky forest, fun pumpkins, silly ghosts, creepy ghouls (to name a few). If you’re lucky enough to have a mantle, this can be the perfect focal point to bring the whole thing together. Our home has a fireplace with a very narrow mantle, so it’s a little difficult to get the look I’m going for. Hopefully we’ll be beefing up the mantle soon. Until then, I can pull bits of inspiration from these eight amazingly decorated mantles.
This cream and black mantle is very chic, but also fun with the pop of orange in the banner. See it at Candace Stringham Photography.
A gold and white chevron background gives this mantle just the right amount of sparkle and pizzazz. Check out Jessica Marie Design for printables and tutorials.
Natural touches, antique books, and framed prints on newspaper make this mantle look smart. Find this design and more Halloween inspiration at The Moes Family.
The details in this design are great, from the cheesecloth spiderwebs to the homemade banner. Sweet Something Designs has some great ideas.
The elegant simplicity of this mantle make it one of my favorites. And I’m loving burlap right now! See more at Hey Lauren Rene.
A whimsical mantle designed with orange and black makes this a very fun focal point. See more photos and a link to the banner tutorial at Polka Dot Chair.
I love the green in this one, and also the great balance of cute and spooky. This mantle was featured on Anders Ruff.
Hope you all are inspired to get those decorations up. I’ll share some photos of my own mantle soon!
