I have been inspired by two of my fellow blogger friends to do a blog post about my Halloween decor this year! They are Amber of https://followtheyellowbrickhome.com/ and Olivia of https://reinventedcollection.com/ I urge you to go check out their blogs! They are beautiful!!
I have done my Halloween decorating this year on the cheap with bats cut from card stock, dollar store items and things snagged on clearance last year after Halloween!
So first I cleared off the mantle to have a blank slate First I added the giant spider to the mirror Then I added the netting and some battery operated twinkle lights (the mercury glass didn’t make the cut 😉)
Then came the creative part! I put some dollar store skulls and tea lights in the lanterns,
Attached some black birds to the lanterns,
Added some black candles in some of my collection of old silver candlesticks
I sprinkled some hairy spiders around!
Of course I had to add a colony of the card stock bats to the wall with sticky tack!
I can’t forget about the rubber rat that has been in the family for I don’t know how long 😂
So here is the finished product in all it’s spooktacular glory!
There are no rules when it comes to how or what you decorate with for Halloween! I suggest you look around at what you have and how you can tweak it to make it fit into your Halloween decor whether it’s fun or spooky! It’s also a great time to get the kids involved have them cut out card stock bats, pumpkins or ghosts to decorate with. 🦇👻🎃
I hope I have given you some ideas on how to do a budget friendly Halloween mantle! Enjoy and Happy Halloween🎃
