Spooky Spaces // A Halloween Mantle

I'm not one to go all out for the holidays and decorate every room in the house, but I do like to update the mantle from time to time.  Using a budget-friendly combination of crafty projects and home decor pieces I already own, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to change things up.  So, when Jo-Ann Fabrics and Craft Stores contacted me to participate in their Celebrate the Season campaign, I jumped at the chance and created a spooky Halloween inspired mantle fit for any sinister character.

All it took to transform my everyday mantle into a spooky space was a quick trip to my local Jo-Ann Fabrics and Craft Store for supplies to create a simple craft and a couple additional Halloween decor items, plus a few more pieces I already had laying around the house.

The Holiday Decorations Spider Web Mantle Scarf, Martha Stewart Happy Halloween Banner, paper-mache witches hat and paper-mache tombstone were each on sale at Jo-Ann's and only ran me a total of $14.26.  Not too shabby!

Luke helped me with the craft side of this holiday decor project and painted the cardboard hat and tombstone with some black craft paint and a foam brush.  It was the perfect project for a 3 year old and he felt like such a big help.  After the tombstone dried, I used chalk to outline the shape and write a traditional RIP on the front.

After pulling a few more decor items from my stash, I was set to design the perfect spooky spaces mantle.  This was so simple, quick and fun - it's projects like these that get me excited for the holiday season!

For those of you in the holiday crafting spirit, use the following coupon at your local Jo-Ann Fabrics and Craft Store or online to stock up on Halloween decor and create your own #spookyspace!


So what gets you excited for the holidays?

The following project is part of the Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores® Celebrate the Season campaign.  I received compensation for this project; however, this is my personal, honest opinion based on my experience.



  1. It looks awesome, Meagan! Great job! I wish I had a mantle to decorate! I am hoping to get an entry table that I can do something with for the holidays. :)

  2. Thanks, Tria! And that's such a great idea for people that don't have a mantle!
