Halloween Mantel with a Mirror
An everyday mirror (similar) or this mirror (a little cheaper) serves as a backdrop for each season and for Halloween, I decided to hang a large black spider to the mirror. The mirror also serves as a great backdrop for seasonal wreaths too, as shown here in our Fall Home Tour.
Halloween Mantel and Fall decorations – Textured Colorful Pumpkin Ideas
A mix of rattan, glass and wood pumpkins sporting blush and purple create a whimsical classy Halloween mantel theme.
Fall decorations – Halloween Signs
Use a wooden halloween sign on your mantel mixed with Fall decorations to create visual interest and a pop of fun.
I also found this round Halloween sign that worked perfectly on my coffee table as a tray. Cute right?
I am all about easy and simple these days so swapping out my everyday decor isn’t an option with the change of seasons.
Fall Decorations – Throw Pillows with Orange
The orange plaid throw pillows coordinate with just about any Fall or Halloween themed pillows. Plaid and checkered pillows are very popular this season and I absolutely love how the Halloween witch pillow ties in the spooky theme.
The white firefly tree lights on the mantel are perfect for Fall and Winter as they look so cozy at night lite up. They will look great with holiday garland during Christmas too.
Decorating a Halloween mantel with Fall decorations
The Fall decorations and faux dried flowers were actually trimmed from a bouquet that I purchased at HomeGoods.
Black Halloween Decorations
The black garland piece is a small scarf from a halloween costume. You can find black fur pieces in the ribbon or sewing section of Michaels Crafts if you are looking to create this look on your own Fall or Halloween mantel.
You can’t go wrong with the color black when decorating for Halloween. The key though is to mix in other non traditional Halloween colors to keep the room from looking like a gorey space, unless of course you want gore!
Black geometric or textured throw pillows mixed with gray and orange, white and hints of blush help keep the space classy and sophisticated.
Black candle sticks in varying heights are a perfect Fall decoration for either a mantel or a coffee table.
