Halloween Mantel Decor
Plus a Quick, Easy, and Spooky DIY Project
It’s my favorite time of year! I absolutely love this season of holidays. From the rich colors to the heavenly aromas, to the yummy foods, and wonderful family memories in the making, I find it all heartwarming.
So, I’m kicking off the last quarter of the year by sharing my Halloween Mantel Decor. I have to tell you, I am in love with how this mantel turned out. Thanks to Oriental Trading for providing some of the decor items, and to Luke who made my dreams come true with the Mantel Makeover last year.
And, bonus, this little viewing comes with a spooktacular DIY project that is fun and creepy.
So, let’s get started…
Halloween Mantel Decor
Since Halloween is possibly my favorite holiday, I wanted to have something fun and festive with a simple elegance. And, I decided to stick with the traditional colors of orange and black with an added splash of purple.
The Black Metal Lanterns (above) are so pretty and how cute are they filled with candy corn? A variety of mini pumpkins on multi-level candle holders and lacy tin buckets in orange and black, and a glittery black cat to add some sparkle. Don’t you love the way the Halloween Mantel Decor turned out?
Black cats and pumpkins inspired me to make a printable for my mantel frame using a quote (source unknown) that I have loved for years.
“When Black Cats prowl and Pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.”
Now, check out this Spider Web Candelabra! Isn’t it adorable? With all the spiders crawling on the candelabra, I knew I wanted to have some spidery candles. So, I decided to makeover some old candles that I had stored away — you know those ones you’ve used but there is a lot of candle leftover, and you know you’ll use them again sometime but you never do. Here is your chance!
DIY Spider Candles for Halloween
What You’ll Need:
- Grab your used candles (or new ones if you must — LOL)
- A Permanent Marker ( I used black for the white candles and silver for the purple candles)
- Draw a spider web at the flame tip of the candle.
- Draw a squiggly line down the candle and draw a black dot at the end. The black dot is your spider body.
- Add eight legs to your spider body.
- Create the look you want by adding more webs and/or spiders.
NOTE – For Halloween, using the old, perhaps discolored, candles make for a perfect creepy look. I had one that had a lot of candle wax dripped down the side, awesome. Also, with Halloween, you do not need to have your candles standing perfectly straight. So, if they teeter a bit in the candle holder or have a little curve to them makes it all the more spooky and eerie.
I hung my Halloween wreath above the mantel. It’s a piece I’ve had for years and is always fun to unearth each year.
Then, tying all the decor together is the amazing black Gauze Garland String Lights with purple bulbs — love it!
I draped the lights over and under the fireplace mantel and hung my Happy Halloween sign from the hidden hook beneath my mantel. It provided the perfect spooky touch to finish off my Halloween Mantel Decor.
I hope you have enjoyed this peek into my Halloween Mantel Decor, and wish you a spooky and fun Halloween!

This is such a fun and cool idea! Everything is so Halloween, I can’t decide which is my favorite. But if I’ve to choose I’ll go with the spider candles. Very creative!
I really love your halloween mantle decor. I still need to add a few things to mine to spooky it up a bit!
These are great! They’re appropriate for both adult and kid Halloween parties. I think I want to organize one this year just so we can decorate!
I love all of the black and purple – and cats! Also, candy corn is one of my favorite parts of fall. I think it’s great how you decorated with it!
This looks awesome! I need to think about getting some of those purple lights. I ‘m loving the candy corn lanterns!
Your Halloween mantel is super cute! I have my fall stuff up already and will get out my Halloween decor as soon as October arrives!
