Halloween decorative fireplace mantel: colorful pumpkins embellishing the space
We agree that pumpkins are the flagship decoration of the fall and especially when it comes to decorating the porch for Halloween. However, these decorative pieces are also invited into the fireplace decoration to celebrate the horror festival in a colorful and playful way. And in that vein, here is our first tutorial illustrating how to give a festive touch to your mantel with His Majesty the Pumpkin.

Halloween decoration idea to make yourself: a colorful garland that is easy to make
This year, the do-it-yourself Halloween decoration is very colorful and celebrates playful and popular patterns. After the famous pumpkins, it's the paper ghost trick that you can create with the help of your children. Here are the materials needed:
- Pieces of cardboard in the colors of the rainbow
- Double-sided adhesive tape
- Baker's twine (color of your choice)
To make this garland of colorful ghosts, you must first draw their outlines on the different pieces of cardboard. Then cut out the ghosts and glue them on the string using the double-sided adhesive tape, matching the various shades. Finally, secure the two ends of the wire to the mantel of the fireplace. To do this, use the double-sided tape or, if possible, tie the thread.
How about making an even more colorful Halloween decoration? Eh, yes, it is quite possible! To achieve this, you only need to accompany the ghost garland with a few matching items. Think, for example, of the unmissable pumpkins promoting bright colors and geometric patterns to arrange on your decorative Halloween fireplace mantel!
DIY Jack O'Lantern-style balloon garland for an original Halloween decorative fireplace mantel
The Halloween decoration for the fireplace can vary depending on your own desires and preferences. In the following tutorial, we suggest you swap the garland of ghosts for that of balloons. Indeed, the two decorative pieces are super easy to make and you can even change them during the day. So, before you jump into DIY Halloween crafts, first get some balloons of different colors, a low heat glue gun, as well as a black felt tip pen.
First of all, inflate your balloons, being careful that their sizes are different. Then take the black felt and draw the face of the pumpkin-lantern (Jack O 'Lantern) on about ten balloons. Then, assemble the balloon garland. To do this, you need to create "clusters" from two or three balloons. So, inflate a balloon and tie the end. Then inflate another and tie its end to that of the first balloon. Do the same with the other groups of balloons. Finally, glue the clusters to each other using the low temperature glue gun. Attach your garland to the fireplace and you're done.

Who said that the decor for Halloween must necessarily promote dark colors and terrifying patterns? So here is another colorful decoration idea that is easy, quick and inexpensive to create. These are paper flowers known as cempasúchil (Indian rose) which is widely used in Mexico on the Day of the Dead. Find out what materials are needed in the next paragraph.
- Pink and yellow colored tissue paper
- White chenille yarns
Take about four sheets of tissue paper, fold the whole thing in half and cut out in the center. Fold all the pieces in half again and always cut in the center. You should get two piles of tissue paper, each with about 12 small sheets. Then fold each section into an accordion and secure with the chenille threads in the middle just as shown in the pictures above. Trim the edges to round them off and get a more floral look. Carefully unfold the leaves by pulling on each side to form the petals of your paper flowers. Repeat with the remaining tissue paper. Finally, secure the twine on both sides of the fireplace mantel and add the flowers securing them with chenille thread.
Let's take a look at two other flagship pieces that cannot go unnoticed and that harmonize wonderfully with the ensemble. So, it is in particular the large colorful painting illustrating the famous Mexican skull motif as well as candles of different colors and minimalist spirit.
