Spooky Halloween Mantel Decorations - Create a fun and spooky black and white halloween mantel with these easy steps!Who loves to decorate for Halloween?!?! THIS GIRL definitely does! It may stem from my childhood. My mom is a HUGE Halloween decorating fan, and I grew up with the house being decked out for Halloween! Some people love to use fun Halloween colors; personally I love using black and white with a touch of spooky for my Halloween decor.

I have designed three different Halloween Mantel Decor Ideas for Shutterfly, and I can’t wait to hear which one represents your Halloween style! Each Design comes with FREE Printables to help you create the look, or give it your own spin! The three ideas are; Spooky Halloween Mantel Decor, a Black and Gold Halloween Mantel, and a Colorful Halloween Mantel.

NO MANTEL? Don’t worry … You can recreate these decor tips using a shelf or bookcase in your house! You can also use a bench to decorate the hearth styles!

Spooky Halloween Mantel Decor - Black and white halloween mantel decorations and ideas.
A Spooky Forest Tree is easy to make and adds a fun element to your Spooky Halloween Mantel Decor. Collect branches from outside and snap them to the size you need, or use tree cutters if they are thicker. Next Spray paint your branches black or gray. Use rocks in your bucket (Dollar Tree has lots of base options) to hold the branches, and Spider Web to cover the rocks, tree, and mantel.

The Chalkboard Banner is a FREE Printable at the bottom of this post. You can use as is, or you can add some fabulous spider webs as shown here! These webs came from Dollar Tree with big spiders on them. Remove the spiders then attached the Printables with hot glue, and attach each web together using twine.

The bats flying up the mantel were a paper garland from Target. I cut the bats off of the garland and stuck to the fireplace. I used hot glue since nothing else would stick to my stone. It peeled right off after Halloween without any damage to my stone. You can find similar bats HERE on Amazon. FREE Halloween Chalkboard print designs
Spray paint a paper chipboard book (Michaels) black for the potion bottle and miniature Mr. Bones to sit on. These Potion Bottles were a great HomeGoods Find! This time of year you can find these just about anywhere.

Halloween decor skulls in jars

1.) Purchase two ceramic skulls from Hobby Lobby or online.
2.) Get a dark color stain. Shown here was Rustoleum’s Dark Walnut.
3.) Paint the stain on the two skulls with a brush, and then use a paper towel to wipe around and give it the old worn look.
4.) After they fully dry use hot glue to put one skull on top of the other.

    I absolutely love your ideas!! With so many bloggers out there, It is hard to find blogs that share the same decorating ideas that capture your taste. This Haloween definitely does that for me. The apothecary jars with the skeletons in them are awesome, as are about every other item of decor!! I will definitely save your blog as a great favorite!! Thank you for sharing. I love decorating and thought I had quite an arsenal of Halloween decorations. Apparently not! Such creativity!!
