Halloween Mantel and Decor

Halloween is always a fun holiday to decorate for. Spooky skeletons, creepy spiders and black roses. What’s not to love?

For my mantel, I put down a layer of Spanish moss that I has snagged at the dollar store. I love the eerie look it gives the entire mantel. The skull, roses, spiders and ravens are also dollar store purchases.

I recently became the proud new owner of a mountain of yarn.Β  Amongst the pile, was this black yarnΒ  that reminded me of spiders and I thought it would be perfect for Halloween decorating. Wrapping it around a white vase gave a look that resembles a parade of marching spiders.

My “Happy Halloween” sign was so easy to make. If you would like to duplicate my sign, here are the supplies you’ll need.

First, cut 14 burlap rectangles 6″ wide x 12″ high.

Next, fold over the top 1″ and sew. Leave a pocket big enough to thread the twine through.

Then, paint one letter on each rectangle and let dry.

Holiday decor would be nothing without a little kitchen decorating. I found these fun little owls at the dollar store. Not sure if you can tell, but I love, love, love the dollar store! Awesome finds for a buck!

The bats were printed out, traced onto black card stock and cut out. You can find Erin’s bat design here, in this post. They are a great way to embellish a blank wall, a mirror or kitchen cabinets.

Well, there you have it. Simple, spooky, budget friendly decor. How do you decorate your home for Halloween?
