Dec-O-Ween: My Halloween Mantle

It's October and that means we get to focus on having some fun decorating for Halloween. I'm so excited to actually decorate this year with the addition of my teal fireplace mantle. Mantles are so fun to play around with! So my contribution to Gretchen of Boxy Colonial's Dec-O-Ween week is sharing how I've decorated for Halloween on my mantle. I sure hope you enjoy it!

Not much else of my decor has changed from my Fall home tour. Instead I like to decorate the porch and the mantle and leave the rest of the decorating fall neutral. Let me share my decorated faux fireplace mantel with you first:

And by "neutral," I mean as neutral as a maximalist loving gal like myself can get.

I don't pick up many items from year to year, but this cute "EEK" from Target's dollar spot had to come home with me.

You may have noticed it's a little spider crazy here. I took fishing line and randomly hot glued plastic spiders to it to mimic a kind of spiderweb invasion.

I really like spiders.

Any Alice in Wonderland fans out there? Imagine my excitement when I found this Cheshire cat at the thrift store.

And in true Corinna fashion, I decorate with a lot of plants. Plants, kitschy decor and color. That's my formula for a space that makes me happy.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you've found an idea or two or three you can use for your own decor. Don't forget to visit the other tours in the Dec-O-Ween series and pin your favorites!
