Inspired by ghosts, candles, and a pumpkin or two, I’m sharing my family room Halloween Mantel Decor with all of you. (Hey that rhymed!)
Boo-tiful Halloween Mantel Decor
Yes my friends, we are taking a peek at some of my Halloween decorations today. I’m inviting you back into my family room to share my candlelit ghost-inspired Halloween Mantel Decor today.
And speaking of candlelit, I’m back with my Seasons of Home blogger friends. Last year we had fun sharing our cozy candlelight spaces (see mime HERE and HERE) so we decided to do it again this year. If you’re looking for more fall decor inspiration by way of candlelight, be sure to check out all the post I’ve linked below. Inspiration abounds!
If you saw my Fall Home Tour, then you got a little sneak peek at this Halloween mantel decor. However, I resisted the urge to light all the candles in that post, so I could save the fun and magic for now.

Halloween Mantel Decor
This Halloween mantel decor was inspired by my little collection of pottery ghost tea-light holders I’ve been collecting from Mollie Jenkins Pottery. She typically sells these ghosts on a special day in August and they sell out in minutes. I’ve purchased a couple every year for the past three to build up this collection.
I was trying to decided where to put them this year and I thought my family room mantel would be the perfect place.
As a backdrop for the ghosts, I hung a framed chalkboard above the mantel. If you were here last year, you might remember I used this same chalkboard to recreate my Hocus Pocus Broom Co. drawing. This year I went a bit more simple and just used the word “boo”. It seemed fitting given the rest of the halloween mantel decor.
With my chalkboard and ghosts in place, I filled in with some candlesticks, some white pumpkins I got from Target last year, and some preserved fall leaves for a little splash of color.
And with that, my Boo-tiful Halloween Mantel was complete! The resulting look is both cute and a little spooky. It’s totally perfect for the season.
With all of the candles lit, I think it creates such a magical touch. There is something about a bunch of candles flickering that really lends itself to the season, don’t you think? I think it adds a little eeriness too!
The whole look is really simple but still looks fun, whimsical, and perfect for the season. I would have lit a fire in the fireplace to really complete the look, but it’s still a bit too warm here. (Come on cooler weather!!) Once I do, I’ll try and remember to share a picture over on Instagram at @inspiredbycharm.
And that’s a wrap on my Halloween mantel decor. If you want to see more of this space or have a look around the rest of my home decorated for fall, be sure to check out my full Fall Home Tour HERE.
