Our Halloween mantel

Hello friends!

Thank you for popping over to check out our spin on Halloween decor! I never really decorate for Halloween per se I mostly tend to focus on fall so it was a lot of fun creating this space!

I knew I wanted to create a not too spooky scene for the girls here at home and what better place to do it then our new fireplace and mantel?! (More on this fireplace to come!)

I went shopping and found some spooky trees, spiderweb material and wooden Halloween shapes. I then came across these glitter florals that reminded me so much of spooky trees. Since I was unable to find houses that I loved I decided to make them myself!

Here is your warning, I am not an artist. Ha! I do love enjoy doodling and sketching when I’m bored on the children’s menu at a restaurant but that’s about it. 😉 That said, i had so much fun dreaming up this space. I grabbed a Halloween book of ours and got to work. I like to look at an image and then recreate and dream it up my own way on paper, I find it easier to focus that way!

About an hour later I had a big haunted mansion and these smaller haunted houses. Our girls drew little spooky characters and bats besides me and our haunted scene was ready!

I laid out some string lights and the paper creations started to glow! I loved this little eerie surprise. The way it all came together was great!

Creating a Halloween scene doesn’t have to be gory or overly scary. Just do whatever it is that fits your family and home! I had no clue how this would turn out but I am happy with the playful and mysterious scene we get have on display for the month! But what I love even more than that was the fact that I got to create this with my daughters. It also helps that it wasn’t outrageously expensive!
