Halloween Mantel (Skulls & Skeletons)

Happy October! We booked a last minute trip for the end of the month, the kids have chosen their Halloween costumes, and the Cubs made it to the postseason! It's now time to get the house ready! The only indoor decorating I do for Halloween is on the mantel. It's a large space and a focal point in our open concept home, so it seems like the perfect spot to add a little bit of "spookiness"!

I love all things skulls and skeletons for Halloween! I really don't have that much stuff, and I like to use what I have. I usually throw out some stuff every year and might pick up a few things each year too.

The guy on the left was a thrift store find from several years ago. I have used him both outside and inside. He sits upright, which makes him fun! The metallic skull is from Homegoods, and the skeleton is from Michaels. I love that he has bent knees for sitting on the edge of the mantel. And a fun smile. Oh, and crossed legs. Ha! The letter board was a gift and I love moving it around!
The black/silver skulls are from Dollar Tree, as well as the small white skull. The large one is from Target. I added some height variation with black/white books and thrifted candlesticks.

Lastly, I added some flickering flameless candles from Target underneath the TV and draped the entire mantel with "creepy" cloth from Dollar Tree.
The skull garland is from Homegoods and it's my favorite part! I hope you like it!

We are working on making he porch a little more festive as well! I'll post about that soon! xo
