Halloween mantle decorating ideas

Every year during Halloween people start to get ready for the scary night by decorating their homes. Sure, pumpkins are one way to go, but the interior of the house needs some changes too. Here we are with some ideas of how you can get your home ready for Halloween. In this article we’ll be referring to mantles in particularly and we’ll be presenting some decorating options.

Mantles are a centerpiece by themselves and their design and structure almost invites you to place some decorations there. If you want to create the impression of a haunted house try some fake spider web and maybe place a hairy spider on it. Add some bats that you find in toy stores for example or that you can make yourself from black paper.

If you have a mirror than you can buy some special paint and create a spooky picture or maybe write a message on it. Put some scary photos and a collage or some dramatic candlesticks. If you feel especially creative and talented you can use the fireplace to recreate a scene from hell and use the fire in your favor. Use a lot of red in this case to emphasis the power of fire and when the lights would go off the effect will be dramatic. Usually when decorating the homes for Halloween, black is a popular color, along with red and grey to create dusty and old look.{pics from flickr.com}
