Halloween Mantel + A Mini Tutorial

I'm going backwards (in decorating for Fall) I know!! I showed you my Fall front porch HERE
and now I'm inside decorating for Halloween!
I'm weird in that I don't like gorry, scary or gruesome Halloween decor at all......I'm much better with the fun, cutesy and safe Halloween decorations :)
A few weeks ago I created my 'BOO' Boa Halloween Garland and knew I wanted to use it in my Halloween mantel! I also have a super quick and easy tutorial for transforming regular art into holiday themed decor!
So, here we go.......first up here is my newly done Halloween mantel:

I told you I like cutesy!! LOL! The wreath was just black when I purchased it and I added the ribbon and ornaments. I just LOVE these little pumpkins I found at Walmart for $0.99 each! I've used them in my Fall tablescape and in my Fall front porch!
See the black and white artwork in the center of my display? Here is how they started.......

I'd thought about getting rid of them so many times but I'm so glad that I hung onto them! Don't you love when you can re-purpose an unused item and not have to spend any money?!?
I used Mod-Podge, paintbrush and glitter to add some sparkle to these prints!
And here they are ready for Halloween!

Have you started decorating for Halloween yet?

Fall Party


  1. Adorable! I prefer a "pretty" Hallowe'en to a gruesome one too. Love the feather boa and the glittery pictures.
    Your white mantel is absolutely gorgeous too.

    1. Thank you Bronwyn!! You are always so sweet, love your visits! :)

  2. I love the glitter! I SO wish I had a mantle. Okay...I really do have one, but it's in the basement and no one ever goes down there to look at it.

    1. Haha :) This is my makeshift mantel since most AZ homes don't have fireplaces but I made due! Glam up that basement girl :)

  3. This is so cute and pretty! I love how you glittered the pictures...great idea! I wish I had a cute mantel to decorate now :)

  12. Love this mantel! You're not weird at all...I don't like the scary stuff either...just the fun. So clever how you enhanced the prints...great idea!

  13. I'm not a huge Halloween fan and really dislike the scary part of it....so I guess If I decorated a Halloween mantel, I would make it either elegant or cutesy too...I love that you made your son part of the process...that is always so refreshing to see...xo

  14. Wow, that is really fabulous!! I really need to start decorating for the holidays, besides just Christmas!! :)

  18. Though it's nice to get fast results, I find the healthiest way is to just brush your enamel with toothpaste that has baking soda in it. I have learned from a friend that baking soda is supposed to whiten your enamel, though it doesn't do something health wise.
    That's why using toothpaste WITH the stuff in it is the healthiest way to go about it. Just twice a day, or if you're really dedicated, every
    time after a meal, for 2 minutes each.

    In case you freeze meal in that, let thaw in crockpot whilst on lower,
    then stretch out bag in crockpot. Cook dinner wanted time.
