How to Style a Traditional Halloween Mantel
Today we are sharing the third mantel design we styled for our feature, 3 Ways to Decorate a Fireplace Mantel for Halloween for DIY Network! If you missed the first two we shared, be sure to check out our Glam Halloween Mantel and our Creepy Halloween Mantel. You can easily create this classic orange and black Halloween display with our easy tutorials and ideas!
Start by draping faux spider webs across the fireplace and mantel for a spooky look.  Pops of orange from pumpkin art and other decorations look stunning mixed with the pops of black.

Think out of the box when creating additional items for your display. Add vinyl numbers to plain white mugs to display the number 31, in the spirit of Halloween. Another option would be to add the numbers to jars or a small canvas!

    My favorite part of this mantel is the 3D pumpkin art! It reminds me of the items my mother used to decorate with when I was a child and it was always so fun to help out. Thanks for all of these inspirational mantels!
