Mantels can be pretty fun to decorate. You can either choose a theme and go with it, or you can choose a bunch of other decorations and embellishments and end up with something that’s just a big mess. In any case, we’re here to show you a bunch of great ways in which you can decorate the mantel for Halloween. Let’s see what this year’s Halloween décor needs to offer.
1. Welcome tune.
Start with a traditional welcome sign which can be painted on the wall or a poster or picture. Use a Halloween tune or your favorite guitar to send everyone through the stairs.
2. Welcome sign without the pumpkins.
If you really want to be spooky then get creative and use some old or repurposed items to create a unique and spooky welcome sign. You can find these beauties on thecraftingnook. Aren’t the pumpkins lovely?
3. Welcome sign on the fireplace mantel.
If you think you’d hurt yourself with an antique sign sitting on the fireplace mantel, then go find a spider or a skeleton this Halloween and give it a good clean. You can also put a welcome sign that’s actually talking.
4. Cover the place in fake snow.
Fake snow is a great way of making a scene but if you use glitter it will be a little too much. So use a snow covering package or something similar and create a snowy base for your Halloween décor.
5. Climb up a mount.
Mount yourself into the chimney and cover your porch, patio and even the chimney with a humorous, fun Halloween picture. It’s the perfect way to welcome guests into your home.
6. Framed doilies.
I don’t know why everyone pictures doilies, but it’s the perfect decoration for the fireplace mantel. Allow them to shine by with their cheerful glow, or showcase their playful side by hanging them on the fireplace mantel.
7. Sparkly pumpkins.
8. Climb up a barrel and display your seasonal cut-outs on the fireplace mantel. If you don’t want to clutter the entire mantel with pictures, choose a selection that’s a little bit more subtle.
8. Let the silver tangerine flow.
For a luxurious look that’s a bit more glam than Halloween, try hanging a cascading silver tulle doily from the fireplace mantel. It ga new be the perfect element to use for an Autumn celebration.
10. Welcome your guests with a hay bonfire.
Garage doors, bulletin boards, cornices, porches, you name it. Wherever you decide to feature a fireplace, try using the hay bonfire as a welcome medicine spiller!
