Indoor Halloween Mantel Decor

First up is my new mantel decor this year. For the longest time I was using the same string of dollar store skeletons but they broke this year so I have rearranged things and moved my skeletons somewhere else. (coming later in the post)  If you have not seen the tutorial for this no sew Halloween Mantel decor be sure to check it out. The fabric for these have to be close to clearance this far into October as the craft stores bring out all their Christmas items.

Visting our local craft store I found these large Black wooden Letters 2 for $5. Immediately I thought about Halloween and to keep things reasonable purchased 3 letters, you guess it B-O-O. Not all that original but like I said wanted to keep the an inexpensive Halloween decoration. I also purchased 3 different Halloween themed crafting papers. TIP: if you don’t see a design you like, always remember to flip over the pages most are double-sided. Make sure you have a glue like Modge Podge as well.

This is such an easy and inexpensive Halloween Decoration, you will probably end up going back to the craft store and buying letters for different holidays. Ohh should have bought H-O-H-O. There is still time:)



I traced the letters onto the papers first. If you are tracing on the back side of the paper make sure the letter is backwards. Trust me I made that mistake already.

Then paint a layer of glue the letter and place the cut out letter on the wood letter. Be sure and press down and take out any bumps in the paper.

Once that dries, cover the paper with another sealing coat of Modge Podge. I told you this was easy and under $10 . Be sure to check out the no-sew Halloween Mantel cover too.

I also recently purchased these candle holders from . Trying to make a decorating hack from another catalog which used black candlesticks, I thought these would be good all year round. Use ribbon and just tape it around the candles for some extra holiday flair.

Also found at are these ceramic pumpkins. I just have fallen in love with the brand Oddity. They have such great products and well made. They fit perfectly on the ceramic candlesticks but I worried a ball or something might hit the mantel and I would lose both.

Halloween Table Runner: I decided to add them to my $5 runner I made from a remnant from the fabric store. If you can sew straight lines, you can make one of these. Because I did not want to buy enough fabric to get the length, I just pieced it together and added the ribbon over the seam. Told you this is easy and a modern update to our kitchen.

A little halloween decorations scary

Remember I mentioned those dollar store skeletons. I cut the garland and hung them from my chandelier. Just creepy enough to say Halloween but not enough to scare anyone.
