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)

How To:

  1. Draw a spider web at the flame tip of the candle.
  2. Draw a squiggly line down the candle and draw a black dot at the end. The black dot is your spider body.
  3. Add eight legs to your spider body.
  4. 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!

Kittens – Hijinx & Josette

Kittens!

Hijinx & Josette

(or, as they are more affectionately known, Jinx & Josie)

 

A week and a half ago, September 14th, we adopted two adorable little kittens–one boy, Jinx, and one petite little girl, Josie. They were born on June 29th, and Josie is less than half the size of her brother weighing just barely 2 pounds at 12 weeks old. We are so happy we took both kittens, because I don’t think either one of them would have done well alone. They are so playful, and Jinx really takes good care of his sister. There names fit them perfectly. Jinx is on the mischievous side, while Josie is dainty and gentle.

Josie must have been the runt of the litter, and no one seemed to care too much if she got to eat or not. Her fur was dull, she was skiddish of people, and she did not even know how to play. Well, she is a smart girl and a quick learner. Her fur is even starting to shine up like her brother’s with love and good food.

Jinx and Josie love to play and cuddle with each other as well as with us. They are learning their names, and even starting to come when called. Rory, especially, is thrilled with the kittens; she has wanted one for years.

They are black kitties with a dark brown striping in their undercoat, and bright green eyes–so pretty. Their coloring makes it challenging to snap good photos, but we’re having fun trying. LOL

It’s been an exciting time, and I’m sure there is loads more fun to come!

Welcome to your new home, Jinx & Josie!

Do you have any pets?

Any suggestions on how to train them to stay off the furniture?
