Glam Halloween Mantel - The TomKat Studio
Looking for Halloween decorating inspiration? We designed my fireplace mantel in three different Halloween styles for DIY Network— spooky, glam and traditional — and didn’t spend a lot of time or money doing it. Pick your favorite, download the printables and projects and get the look you love this Halloween!

First up, this Halloween, create a bold statement with an all black and white Halloween display! What says glam more than black glitter and lace? Start by draping white cheesecloth on your mantel and add some glittery spiders and spider webs.

Create a focal point for your display by making a statement art piece. This glittered witch art is the perfect accessory to set the tone for this glam mantel. In just a few easy steps, this witch can be painted and glittered. Download the printable template and follow the simple instructions!

Dress up simple white pillar candles by adding black lace. Simply wrap the lace around the top edge of the candle and pin or glue on the back to add a touch of Halloween glam. Get the instructions here

    I love the banner. The font is amazing. Glitter paper is the cherry on top.

    This is such a cute way to decorate for Halloween without getting too creepy or spooky. I especially love the giant spiders crawling up the fireplace – did you make those too? Thanks for the inspiration!

    Hi Michelle!
    Thanks so much! No, those furry spiders are just store-bought! I can’t remember where I found them!

    Hi Christy!
    That amazing tree was my assistant’s. I want to say she bought it year’s ago at the Christmas Tree Store?
