See how to style a Boo-tiful Halloween mantel using jars and cloches. My DIY cloche ghosts are a fun way to add a little touch of Halloween to your mantel but they would be equally cute as a centerpiece. If you love Halloween, this is the place to be because I’ve teamed up with a creative group of friends who are also sharing their Halloween decorating ideas and I link to them all at the end of this post.
I kept it much more simple this year. You can see my Halloween Home Tour from last year here – it’s such a fun one!
My free garage sale chalkboard is the perfect backdrop for a full moon and plants add a little bit of color (and life!) to the hearth.
DIY Cloche Ghosts
Gather up your glass jars and cloches. I even used a small cheese dome that I found at the thrift store.
Cut eyes and mouths from black construction paper (I tried using a Sharpie but that was a fail).
Line up on your mantel or put faces on both sides of the cloches and use as a cute Halloween centerpiece.
Last year, Mr. Bonypart was the best skeleton centerpiece and this year, he is being attacked by a couple of aggressive little dogs as he tries to escape into the fireplace.
I love that this look is so easy to create and it’s so much cheaper, not to mention more unique, than using store bought decorations.
Now onto a pressing question. Do you steal your kids Halloween candy?
Now take Mr. Bonyparts hand as he leads you to more Halloween ideas from some friends …
