Over the years, we’ve accumulated a number of Halloween decorative items for the indoors. That said, I tried not to go crazy this season with purchasing more items. Fortunately I limited my purchases because as you will see in this post, my mantel is pretty complete. Any more would be considered clutter.

Here is my interpretation of the Halloween mantel in our home:
