See how I used Halloween decorations from the Target Dollar Spot to decorate our Halloween Mantel.
Decorating for Halloween is probably the only season that all the normal “decorating rules” are thrown out the window. It’s the only season you can decorate in bright purple, neon greens and random other colors. Let’s just say my kids run wild with this season.
I won’t go into how to decorate a mantel for Halloween since I’ve already rounded a post up on how to do that. There are a few simple rules that you can follow for a fool proof lovely mantel.
I’ve recently found a bunch of fun goodies from the Target Dollar Spot. I believe it’s called the Bullseye playground now. I’m no stranger to decorating around the house with goodies I’ve bought from there. I’ve previously used their decor for a fall table setting.
I’m a firm believer that decorating for any season doesn’t need to be extravagant or expensive. As a matter of fact, the few pieces of decor I purchased from Target cost under $25. Paired with old Halloween decor, I had plenty to use to decorate my Halloween mantel.

Target even had that green garland! Other than the two pumpkins, everything else was purchased at There.
Add simple touches of fall around your home to bring warmth and make things more cozy.
Of course I couldn’t get away with a Halloween post without sharing some black and white pictures.
Thrifty Halloween decorating tips
Thrifty seasonal decor tip; the Dollar Tree has fantastic seasonal decor and each item is ONLY $1. Every Halloween season we take a trip to the dollar store and tell each kid (I’ve got two) they can pick out 10 Halloween decorations each! You would think we gave them each a thousand dollars they are so happy. At the end of our trip we’ve only spent $20!
Designer tip: If you don’t want to add literal Halloween decorations, you can bring in touches of fall with things like the amber vases I have on the mantel and the yellow faux flowers.
I hope I’ve given you some ideas on how to decorate your mantel for the Halloween season.
