OK, let’s get the pumpkin rolling!

Honest and elegant minimal mantle

This elegant and minimal mantle decor is perfect for those who prefer to keep things bare bones (if you’ll excuse the pun). A few simple elements – bat cutouts, a painted pumpkin and a witch cat sitting on the mantelpiece – are all it takes to create a spooky yet understated look.

Battery (but chic) ​​Halloween cloak

Ghost and style go hand in hand with this next mantel decor idea. A flock of paper bats takes center stage, while the black flower vase and moody chandeliers add a touch of elegance. Pair it with some strategically placed pumpkins, and you’ve got a chic Halloween mantle that’s sure to impress.

Floating Candles Halloween Mantle

@reserve_huis kept things subtle with some candles seemingly suspended in the air. An occasional pumpkin on the coffee table helps explain what’s going on, just in case also subtle… Ten points to Gryffindor (and a few extra for style) if you pull this one off!

Gourd-Geuse Halloween Mantle

Move over, ghosts and goblins! This mantle is about celebrating the humble pumpkin in all its glory. From glittery gourds to pumpkin pillows, it’s got us feeling all kinds of Halloween excitement. Fall leaves and grasses help round things out, resulting in a display that’s equal parts festive and chic.

Haunted House Halloween Cloak

Creepy spiders, crows and pumpkins—eek! This next mantel has all the rustic charm of a country farmhouse, with a few spooky props thrown in for good measure. Even the cotton cobwebs, a staple of tacky Halloween decor, seem to add an artificial touch to the ensemble.

Black and white neutral Halloween cloak

Although this mantle has a creepy factor in digs (bats, crows, pumpkins, and Mr. Bones itself!), the restrained color scheme does not attack the eyes. Avoiding the traditional oranges and blacks of Halloween, @stephaniehannablog has created a look that is both stylish and on theme.

Gothic Glam Halloween Cloak

A black painted mantle is a natural way to give your Halloween decor a spooky edge. But one that sits against a black wall? Now that’s downright scary! This spooky show from @houseofnebu is the epitome of gothic glamour, with its all-black color palette and luxurious details.

Ghoul-den Halloween Cloak

And speaking of glam, gold Halloween mantle decor is having a moment! While it’s more glossy than gore, it’s perfect for the more mature crowd still looking to get into the Halloween spirit. Get crafty with some spray paint to get a look similar to @treehousethreadsblog.

Rustic Halloween Fireplace Mantel

For larger rooms, don’t be afraid to think outside the box (or, in this case, the mantle) and carry your Halloween theme throughout the space. @lizmariegalvan lined her mantle with jack-o’-lanterns and then placed a few more around the room for a cohesive look. Simply evil!

Dark and overwhelming Halloween cloak

Here’s a perfectly balanced Halloween mantle from @our.cozy.white.home. The TV anchors the screen, while the twigs and bats add just the right amount of weight to either side. We love how she used black and white as her base colors, with pops of orange for a Halloween themed twist.

Cozy White Jack-O’-Lantern Mantel

Who says Halloween means orange and black? We love how these jack-o-lanterns blend into the neutral color palette of cream and white. The fall foliage wreath and candles add to the cozy atmosphere, making this mantel the perfect place to curl up with a pumpkin latte on a chilly fall evening.

Enchanting Halloween Cloak

If you have an old Halloween costume around the house, now is the time to put it to good use! This next cloak has a small witch’s hat and hood as part of the decor. The metallic fabric feels right at home with the gold and green color scheme, and the overall effect is surprisingly chic.

Glitzy Faux Halloween Cloak

This faux mantle proves that Halloween doesn’t have to be all about gore and ghouls (and that you don’t need a working fireplace to create a beautiful mantle display). A few gilded pumpkins, a minimalist print and some DIY bats come together for a glamorous take on the holidays.

Sophisticated and Spooky Halloween cloak

@crazywonderfulblog created a dramatic scene that extends past the fireplace with bats fluttering on the walls and pumpkins spilling out of the firebox and onto the floor. The mantle is clearly the focus of this look, but it feels like the entire room is decorated for Halloween – a spooky feat!

Moody Falloween Cloak

If the fall season were a coat, it would probably look a lot like this one from @gold_is_a_neutral. Oranges and vegetables abound, with many gourds and leaves on display. An ideal setup for anyone who doesn’t want to shift too many gears in October.

Black Twig Wreath Halloween Cloak

If a trip to a haunted forest is on your Halloween bucket list, this cloak is for you. The black garland immediately sets the scene, while the rest of the decorations add to the spooky atmosphere. But beware! The branches may just harbor a few ghosts of their own…

Rainbow Pumpkin Halloween Cloak

A rainbow of mini pumpkins is a far cry from the traditional jack-o-lantern, but we love how they look on this mantle from @leannelimwalkerhome. If you’re planning to host a Halloween party this year, this is a great way to add some extra color and fun to your home decor without going over the top.

Witch Hat Halloween Cloak

Stylish Halloween cloak ideas don’t get much better than this! Swinging witch hats, Harry Potter hanging chandeliers and pumpkins galore make this mantle ideal for any aspiring witch or wizard. And the bat-infested tree sitting on the hearth is just the icing on the cake.

Hocus-Pocus Halloween Cloak

Again, the black and white Halloween mantle decor turns the traditional orange and black on its head (but still looks the part.) A wreath that reads “hocus pocus” is the focal point of this display, with other decorations such as pumpkins and monochrome prints layered beautifully on top.

Boho Halloween Cloak of Horrors

Next we have a fireplace mantel taken straight out of a horror movie (literally)! Do you remember the gruesome man-eating plant from Little shop of horrors? It provides @bohofrisco with the perfect inspiration for her Halloween decor. Plant parents, take note!

Black Magic Halloween Cloak

To initiate you into the dark arts of Halloween decorating, we present this spooky cloak from @daniellemoss_. Black floating candles, decorative bats and ghosts along the mantel create a truly enchanting display. Just open your magic book and let the magic begin!

Crescent Moon Halloween Cloak

More-is-more Halloween maximalists, we have a treat for you! This mantle from @jaglever is a bit busy but it still looks amazing. A garland hangs above the mantle, while a crescent moon, pumpkins, bats and skulls create a spooky scene below. So much Halloween goodness all in one place!

Trick-or-Treat Halloween Cloak

Halloween mantle decor, but make it extra small. Every piece on this mantle is miniature, from the pumpkins to the wreaths to the spooky signs. Proportions are key when working with limited space, and this classy vignette hits the spot. Not too overwhelming, but still on theme and fun!

Over to you!

Mantel decor is a fun way to bring Halloween into your home, but it doesn’t have to be tacky or over-the-top. And while skulls, skeletons, and spiders may be the first things that come to mind when you think of the holiday, we hope these Halloween mantel ideas have shown you that there are plenty of other ways to decorate for the season. So whether you keep things simple with some white pumpkins or go all out with a display that would make even the Addams family proud, make sure your existing style shines through!

One of the easiest ways to decorate for Halloween is to swap out existing art with seasonal prints. At Displate we have a huge selection of Halloween themed posters perfect for mantels, walls and more. Plus, they’re easy to switch out when the holidays are over! From vintage Halloween art prints to Star Wars Halloween posters to Marvel Halloween designs, we have something for everyone.
