With October here it is time to decorate your mantle with a spooky scene! I love Halloween and every year I tend to decorate my mantle in a new and fresh way. There are some tried and true décor pieces that are always a must. I love that I can find great seasonal pieces like this at my local Tuesday Morning and today I am sharing 5 tips on selecting items for a bright and classic Halloween display!
Tip 1: Cluster candles.
I love setting the mood with candles and over the last few years battery operated candles have taken over! I love that they are less mess, easy to use and do not need to be replaced. I love tucking them here and there throughout my display. This year I decided to cluster them together for big impact, especially when they are lit at night.
Tip 2: Use fun lanterns
I found these darling pumpkin lanterns with rope trim that fit a candle inside for illumination. I love the metal look it adds to the décor and the rope detail adds a farmhouse touch. I could see these out on the front porch too, mixed perfectly in with real carved pumpkins! They are so timeless and they are such a fun accent.
Tip 3: Use skeletons as focal decor
So of course you know to use skeletons as decor, but think of using them like the candles. Tuck them here and there and place in unexpected spots. Wrap spider webbing around them and place near lanterns so they are illuminated with the light.
Tip 4: Decorate with seasonal flowers
I always add flowers and foliage into my mantle designs. I love these rich orange colored hydrangeas that make the mason lanterns pop! They soften the space and add a warm touch.
Tip 5: Adorn with webbing and a garland
It is important to not only decorate the top portion of the mantle but to dress the front of it. I adore this witch hat garland decor that lights up for a whimsical hanging garland. I just used spider webbing to add an even spookier touch.
