Fall is finally here and I'm so happy to share this year's Easy Neutral Halloween Fireplace Mantel Decor!
Every year I look forward to decorating for Fall, but I honestly have never decorated for Halloween. Throughout our home, you'll always find an abundance of pumpkins, faux and fresh floral, and fall scented candles. This year I decided to get into the holiday spirit by adding just a touch of spooky fun to our fireplace.
Here is a look at our Halloween Fireplace Mantel!
Looking at our mantel you'll notice I stuck with mostly neutral florals, which go well with the overall look of our home. I try to pick items that are timeless and can be used again and again for years to come. Though trends can be fun, keeping a consistent style and only purchasing items you love will help save money in the long term.
Adding the bats to the fireplace was a clever way to incorporate a spooky feel but an elegant feel. These stick-on bats are not only inexpensive but easy to assemble and remove.
Notice how the bats appear to be flying out of the fireplace, cascading onto the wall and up toward the ceiling? The "S" curve that the bats create helps give balance to both the top and bottom of the fireplace.
HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN FALL FLORAL GARLAND
It's not always easy trying to find ready-made garland, but this simple and easy tutorial will help you customize any color floral to your own preference.
Starting on the outside of the fireplace, place 1 large leaf stem on both ends. The leaf side should be fanned out toward the edge of the fireplace with the stem facing toward the center. Then place the other two stems in the middle, facing opposite sides, evenly spaced apart with the leaf side slightly hanging off the fireplace.
Next, use the 4 large silver stems to fill in any gaps, repeating the sequence.
Fill in any gaps with the remaining stems and florals.
Most of the floral I repurpose each year, so I try to choose neutrals colors that match our home. You can find similar pieces at your local Michaels or Hobby Lobby.
- 4 Large Size Gold Leaf Florals. Face the florals outward, stems facing in.
- 4 Large Size Silver/Chrome Leaf Florals. Place the silver floral in between the large gold, florals facing outward and stem facing in.

I love how glamorous the fireplace look! The colors and texture pair so well together, and never go out of style.
We added a few new fall-themed pillows and throws to our living room. This white pumpkin pillow was the perfect addition, and so affordable!
