My daughters love Harry Potter books and movies, and the HP ride was our favourite at Universal Studios! For this year's Halloween mantel, I wanted to decorate it in a spooky Harry Potter inspired theme for my girls. Here's how I did it on a budget!
To begin, I found these battery-operated white candles from Amazon and tied some fishing line around the tops of 9 candles.
I adhered some Command Hooks onto the top edge of my fireplace mantel, and tied the fishing line on the candles to the hooks. Staggering the candles at various heights adds interest.
Next, I used my Structube Anthropologie dupe mirror as the centerpiece on my Halloween Mantel. Draping a dollar store black cloth over the mirror makes it looks spooky, and my daughter added some dollar store spiders to the cloth.
To fill in the mantel on either side of the mirror, I shopped my home for Harry Potter inspired accessories. I found a gothic look lantern, some DIY dollar store bug + book page art, and some more candles.
An antique book stack, some old looking keys and some gold coloured candlesticks completed the look.
I love how this spooky Halloween mantel turned out, and even better - my daughters love it too! It was so simple to put together, and it didn't cost me much at all.
