We are having a Halloween Party and I wanted to come up with a scene over my super tall fireplace. The living room is the focal point of the party and having an extravagant scene would pull all the other decorations together. Here’s You can create your own eerie cemetery scene.

Horrifying Cemetery Halloween Mantel

I used tall garden trellis’s with the bottom stakes sawed off and painted black for the gates. They reminded me of cemetery gates so I just ran with it and wow did it come out fantastic!

In the center is my “Boo! Candles” with FREE printables. The rest of the decor is odds and ends I have collected through the years. My favorite is the solar owl. He is too cool at night when the sun goes down.

Add some outdoor tombstones, drape some creepy fabric and a few crows and you ‘ll have one spooky mantle this Halloween!
