25 Wicked Halloween Mantles

Your mantle is calling for your decorating prowess.

If you’re in proud ownership of a mantle this holiday season, Halloween is the perfect time to kick off your decorating prowess. A well-plumed mantle can set the holiday tone for the entire house. Get your mantle right and you might not even bother with the front stoop.

You get the idea.
