Welcome to the 3rd annual Halloween Mantels Link party! I am so excited that you’ve stopped by to link up or browse some of the most creative Halloween Mantels in the blogosphere. For those of you new around here, you should know that I LOVE creating vignettes and mantels! Here are a few of the Halloween mantels I have created over the years:

Are you ready to see my latest creation? My Halloween Mantel is fresh of the press and was just styled and fluffed a few hours ago. (Nothing like a link party deadline to get a blogger motivated, eh?)

I wanted tall vases with fall arrangements that would transition into Thanksgiving. Today, I hit Michaels and grabbed a bunch of fillers and a few silk feathers. A raven added to the mix always makes it feel more Halloweenie!

 The adorable owls came from Marshall’s. Speak no evil, hear no evil, see no evil!

I will have a full tutorial tomorrow on how I created the chalkboard! It’s an easy and inexpensive process and will translate well to any holiday!

    Love Love Love your mantel! Can’t wait for the chalkboard tutorial! Gosh I wish we didn’t have a TV on display above our fireplace, so jealous of all the gorgeous mantles

      TV above mantels can be challenging for sure. But if you have a decorative shelf, buffet, hutch, flat surface, you can make it your honorary “mantel”! No mantel required for these parties!
