I think I’m completely obsessed with my new fireplace because I’m decorating it again in classic black Halloween mantel decor!
This fireplace is actually what I wanted in my previous house but wasn’t in the budget so that’s why I just spray painted the brick.
Okay, so it’s been through fall decor and now it’s time for Halloween.
Halloween is always fun for me because I get to use black. I love black (it is a neutral, you know) but usually too dark for me.
But man does it go well with my light neutral decor!
There’s lots of goodies to show you in this one area so let me give you a tour of my classic black Halloween mantel decor.
First, I kinda love these lantern bags I made. I turned them into a garland since I really wanted lots of white pumpkins on the mantel.
So. much. fun!
I’ll be posting how to make this simple craft next week so be sure to pop back.
I draped over this creepy cloth over the mirror and wall sconces, super easy.
I poured some dark coloured melted wax over some candles. I know there are a ton of tutorials right now on Pinterest but I just melted some crayons in an old camping frying pan and poured it over the pumpkins. Easy peasy.
The wax candles are actually LED flickering candles! They come with the candle holder too. So cool.
I used ostrich feathers to give it an extra pop of black and add lots of texture.
They were actually blowing in the wind from the candles in the crock. Such a cool effect.
I don’t know why I’m just new to this flickering plastic candle trend. I was always about REAL candles but these are just the best for Halloween.
Okay, except for the floating candles. Those need to be real.
I hope you enjoyed me changing up my mantel again. And it’s going to happen again at Christmas.
You are now officially warned.
