It’s finally October and the house is ready for Halloween! This year we brought back our fun stick on bats but also included some fun Lowe’s Halloween decor pieces to up the spookiness in our house. My approach to decorating my mantle for Halloween is simple; mix new and vintage pieces, stick to 2 main colors and create a clean/uncluttered but fun look.
The kids and I took a fun trip to Lowe’s where they helped me pick up a few items for our indoor/outdoor look. I liked that they had a range of cheerful Halloween items, like Disney themed Halloween decorations, to lots of inflatables but also lots of more spooky items like skulls and black candelabras.
The girls helped me out by sticking the bats to the wall and choosing which pumpkins we would use. They also worked on putting all the batteries in the battery operated lanterns so they could see them light up when it got dark. As they get older they are requesting bigger roles in decorating the house which makes me happy!
I typically use black and silver for Halloween decor but I was able to incorporate a few rustic pieces into my design with those tin and wood prelit jack o lantern. I also used a fun black and purple prelit wreath that also lights up when the light gets dark. Some spooky bats fly up the wall and a few painted vintage cream pumpkins round out this simple and easy to duplicate mantel. I counted no less than 10 different size and colors at my local Lowe’s I grabbed this large white pumpkin to pair with some smaller black pumpkins that we had purchased several years ago!
The good thing about Lowe’s pieces is that they are interchangeable. I was able to craft a fun outdoor look using the same pieces and some pretty purple mums that were also purchased at Lowe’s. The Halloween cat banner is one of my favourite pieces from this year’s Lowes Halloween decor selection along with those rustic jack o lantern buckets.
