Non-traditional Chic Halloween Mantel

Hey you, thanks for stopping by today! I know, just last week I shared my Fall 2015 Home Tour, but just like that I’ve taken down my Fall mantel and decorated for Halloween! I normally don’t decorate for Halloween, but this year my little ones have convinced me to, and I’m very pleased with how my non-traditional chic Halloween mantel turned out!

Since my design this Fall has been neutral colors, I continued with that theme and came up with something daringly different! I opted for white, eucalyptus, mercury glass and crystals!

I very easily created a doilie banner, by simply hot gluing four dollar store paper doilies to a piece of twine. I hung that piece first. I then hung a “BOO” book page banner I had made, days before, off the sides. Lastly, using small pieces of fish line on the ends, I created a loop and taped a strand of crystal in between the two banners. I was so pleased with how it turned out, and how simple it was to achieve!

The fresh silver dollar eucalyptus never disappoints! I purchased a bunch from my local grocer the other day and added bits to this design. As I’ve said before, I just adore how whimsy it is!! Oh, and do you see that cute little Halloween printable to the left there? I will be sharing that next week over at Just Us Four blog, where I contribute free printables once a month!

My little one and I spotted black glittery spiders on sale at Michaels, and they fit in perfectly throughout our mantel! It’s just the right amount of black! And, of course, you can never go wrong with glitter! I painted the previously gold picture frame I scored at Goodwill for less than buck, with black chalk paint and I love it now!

I added a couple mini white pumpkins, some of my go-to kraft covered books, some mercury glass and voila! After just a few short minutes, a non-traditional chic Halloween mantel was created!

Spooky, Chic Halloween Mantel

Boo! Tis’ the season to get extra spooky! To embrace your fun & out-of-the norm design styles that you may fall into on a daily basis.

Today I’m sharing my spooky, chic halloween mantel with you all & I must say I had SO much fun with this! It was a special request from my daughter to decorate, more than we normally do, for halloween this year! Without hesitation I said YES!

For the design, I wanted to incorporate black as the bold, stark focal point. I found these paper bats from Target & unfortunately they are no longer available, but you can find similar [ here, here & here]. We just began sticking them on the wall in a curved manner. I love how it turned out!

Next, we started with a clean slate on the mantel. I wanted to add my favorite mercury glass pieces, old books, dried hydrangeas, fake spider webs & my baby boo pumpkins! Oh, and for fun we added mini black witch hats!

Here’s what we came up with…

If you follow along on Instagram, you may have participated in the poll last week, of me asking if I should decorate a halloween tree. I did this a few years back too, you can click here to see that post.

I am so happy with how this little spooky tree turned out! Almost all items used came from the dollar store! We used things like fake spider webs, skull ornaments, glow-in-the-dark witch fingers, sparkly ornaments & a witch hat as the tree topper!

 

We had so much fun with this design! Soon we will be decorating the porch for halloween, so stay tuned for that!
