My Halloween Mantle & Decor Updates


Hi Everyone! I wanted to show you some of the Halloween decor updates I made this year to the inside of our house.  This is a little picture heavy, but please make sure you scroll down to the end if you want to see the video I made showcasing my Halloween mantle.  I really like the way it turned out this year, but it doesn't photograph well.

Here is the mantle from both angles.  The video at the end of this post gives you a close-up view in detail.



I found this light up jack-o-lantern on the Collections Etc. website for $8.99, which was a steal (it doesn't seem to be there anymore).  I love that the objects in the tree branches light up, as well as the pumpkin itself.


I found this gem at Pier One for 50% off.


We used craft pumpkins from Target to make these permanent. 


I found this jar at Orchard Supply Hardware, and filled it with chocolate eyeballs from Target.


Tiny and spooky, they both light up and make creepy sounds when squeezed ( clown and zombie from Spirit Halloween).


The pumpkin with the cat and the witch's shoe were $5 together at CVS.  You really can find cute decor in unexpected places (and for great prices).  



The creepy monkey on the left is from Spirit Halloween, and squawks while banging the symbols together when activated (see demo here).  


Another Pier One, 50% off purchase.  


  I have had the pirate for years, but the shaker and flask were Target finds this year.


I really good friend sent me this Vader pug card for Halloween, and it will probably become a part of my permanent decor.  

 

I filled up my monster bowl with eyeball gumballs from Target.  


Here is the vlog I made showing my mantle in more detail. I am also working on one for my outside decor.  I would love to hear if you liked seeing it this way.


Is your house ready for trick-or-treaters?  Leave me a link if you do a post on your Halloween prep.  I would love to take a peek.

Okay that clown is seriously freaking me out. I really like how you throw yourself in the spirit of things though!
