TRICK OR TREAT HALLOWEEN MANTLE
Let's start his Halloween celebration with a happy jack o lantern. Isn't he the most adorable little guy!! Melissa over at My Sweet Loie will inspire you.
There are so many wonderful ideas nestled on this fireplace mantle like the “Trick or Treat” sign, the black wreath, spider webs, candy corn bottle brush trees, and of course the cute spotted pumpkin.
If you are loving these ideas then you will love the rest.
MAN ON THE MOON HALLOWEEN MANTLE
Probably the most popular Halloween decoration this year is the man on the moon. Look at how beautiful this moon face has been decorated on this mantle by Dave at ourhomeonhighst on Instagram.
There are so many wonderful ideas you can glean from this fireplace. Try adding book pages to the front of your fireplace if your mantle is faux and not a real functioning fireplace. And the branches on the left remind me of witches flying brooms in the making.
What a wonderful Halloween fireplace idea.
BOOK PAGE GHOSTLY GARLAND
Speaking of old vintage book pages look at this adorable garland idea from Erin at Gypsylou_designs. There are so many fun things you can do when decorating with books like a cute garland.
Consider adding a ghostly garland to your mantle and if you don't have time to make one Erin will have them for sale soon in her Gypsy Lou Design Revival Etsy shop.
Let's keep the happy haunt ideas going with another fun Halloween design.
JACK O' LANTERN MANTLE
One word describes Liz Marie Galvans Halloween mantle and that is HAPPY. This mantle is simple to create but looks so amazing. You can use inexpensive plastic pumpkins and spray paint them to get a similar look.
If you are inspired by this mantle from Liz then check out her Instagram because she has loads of loads of other cozy ideas.
RUSTIC FARMHOUSE HALLOWEEN MANTLE
My go-to when looking for rustic farmhouse inspiration is Beth at shady_pines3interiors. Not only is she crazy talented when it comes to design but she always does a great job of embodying rustic and cozy.
Look at how adorable this rustic Halloween fireplace turned out. The Halloween book page as art, spiders, candles, and webs are perfect but add the autumn branch at the bottom and it is the icing on the cake.
BATS, CROWS, SKELETONS & OTHER GOODIES ON A HALLOWEEN FIREPLACE
Bats and black crows are trending items to decorate your Halloween mantel with. Jaclyn Mari includes those and so much more on her spooky mantel.
She has found a not so creepy way to include skeletons on her mantel. If you zoom into her firewood, you'll notice a funny skeleton hand piled on her wood. So funny!
There are so many fun details on this mantel. Look closely at the black candle holders and the cheery skeleton crack me up. And her faux pumpkins look so real.
The string of crow lights creates a great glow when you don't have a fire blazing. Isn't this a beautiful white Halloween mantel? And it fits perfectly into the modern farmhouse Halloween mantel department.
PUMPKINS SPILLING OUT OF A FIREPLACE
She has also included crows and bats, but how about the overflow of pumpkins. That is a precious idea to have them spilling out of your fireplace.
We love the colors of the pumpkins/gourds as well! Aren't these great Halloween decoration ideas.
HALLOWEEN MANTEL COMPLETE WITH HOCUS POCUS & APPLES
This is a simple Halloween mantel that Jenna Kate at Home pulled together.
It's cute with the magical words Hocus Pocus in garland and the apples nestled into the greenery. Almost makes us want to watch Snow White.
Her velvety pumpkins are scrumptious as well.
HAUNTED HOUSE SIGN ON A MANTEL
This time we get to see how she decorates her fireplace mantel for Halloween. The Haunted House sign is perfect and her metal jack-o-lanterns are adorable.
GHOSTLY HALLOWEEN FIREPLACE
Aurelie's fireplace is totally charming!
Her tassel ghost garland is so cute and with our How To Make Yarn Tassel tutorial, would be so easy to make for your own home.
She's also done such a cute job decorating the mirror above her mantel with paper bats and we love all her pastel orange pumpkins!
COLORFUL RAINBOW PUMPKINS ON A HALLOWEEN MANTEL
Have you checked out Kara Whitten's Instagram page, Kailo Chic? It's so fun and colorful.
So much fun and bright decor for what can be a dark and gloomy holiday season.
OCTOBER WOODEN SIGN ON A MANTEL
This is a great farmhouse fireplace of Sheila's, from Simply Joy at Home.
The October wooden sign pulls together the great buffalo check in the pillows she has. Her crows are also sitting so sweetly on her cathedral window frame.
Halloween Silhouette Mantle
Try something non-traditional and make a collage or gallery wall of silhouettes for Halloween. This silhouette Halloween mantle idea is easy to create using silhouettes of your favorite trick or treat characters.
AUTUMN HALLOWEEN MANTLE
I love this mantle and how smoothing it marries autumn and Halloween. This is a great idea from Amy at Homeonnativetrail on Instagram.
Consider adding greenery around all your pumpkins and jack o' lanterns. This idea softens the landscape of a fireplace and gives it life. This mantle has great symmetry too. If you love symmetry then add tall lanterns or something tall on the sides.
A MANTLE FULL OF EUCALYPTUS, CANDLESTICKS, PUMPKINS & FRAMES
Now that we have transitioned to mantles with autumn and Halloween let's look at a few fall ideas. Georgia Mae's at Home is a glimpse into Michelle's home. This chippy painted fireplace mantel looks beautiful with the neutral colors displayed on top.
The foliage that she has used reminds us of fall leaves outside. And the simplicity of her empty picture frames, black candlesticks, and one book page wooden sign is perfection.
CANDLES & WHITE PUMPKINS ON TOP OF A FIREPLACE
This is our easy DIY fall decor mantle.
Using cotton garland along with some white candles and small pumpkins keeps things easy as pie, yet delightful. Stacking your pumpkins on things such as the candle lids is a great way to add dimension.
Is your mind racing with all of these great Halloween mantel ideas? All these ideas have us dreaming up some ghouls and goblins.
A few fun things to consider when planning your not-so-spooky mantle are a black cat, dark bats, old windows, creepy spiders, apothecary jars, witch-style decorations, spooky lighting, black owl, autumn colors, black branch, and spooky garland to name a few. LOL!
It's fun to not just decorate in the fall spirit and forget about the favorite holiday in the middle of the season.
