Halloween Mantel Makeover from At Home Stores #AtHomeFinds

Thanks to At Home for giving my mantel a Halloween makeover! 

The holidays are upon us once again! We are getting settled into our new home and this will be our first holiday season decorating our house in Alabama! I have been looking forward to the holidays and I always enjoy seeing a bit of festive decor around the house for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and December.

This year, a big project was to tackle the mantel on the fireplace! It is a more traditional mantel than we've had at the past few houses, but with it being a smaller size than our previous fireplace settings and not taking up the whole wall - I wanted to make sure it sparkled and had plenty of its own personality!


Decorating with At Home

I found everything I needed at At Home for this awesome mantel transformation, and we are all ready for Halloween hosting now!

After: Halloween Ready!

At Home has a variety of decor pieces in all sorts of styles, at everyday low prices! So you can refresh an area of your home, without breaking the bank! I made over this mantel for under $75 and I think it totally changed the feel of the room. It feels festive and fun now!

Prices ranged from $1.99 for the spider webbing, $8.99 for accent decor, and $12.99 for the Haunted House Ticket pillow!

What I Used

I already had a burlap wreath base made from previous Fall seasons, that I used to affix the "Flying Lessons" sign onto the top of it - to become my mantel centerpiece. I thought this sign was great - and reminds me of Harry Potter for some reason!

To go along with the flying lessons theme, this sparkly orange broom jumped right out at me in the Halloween aisle, and I knew I had to incorporate it into the decor somehow! I wanted to add some color to the bottom of the mantel area, since the hearth is at the floor level and darker, the broom worked great to bring the eye down to the lower level. The orange pillow also works great against the black tiles on the fireplace!

I added in two types of garland across the mantel to brighten it up - a purple, orange, and black flag garland hanging from the front and a glittery beaded garland laying across the top.
