Halloween means more than candy, costumes, and kids. Over the past few years, Halloween has become one of the major holidays for which Americans decorate
By simply decorating for Halloween the natural focal point of a room, its fireplace, you can create a Halloween Look for the whole room. Below are four Halloween
decorating ideas for your fireplace and mantle. All are quick and easy ways to get in the "spirit" of Halloween.
- Convert a cluster of small, three to six inch pumpkins into candle holders for your fireplace mantle or hearth.
With a knife, cut off each pumpkin's stem. Then, with an apple corer, remove a cylindrical core from the pumpkins. Stick a candle into each pumpkin. Use black and orange
candles in your mini-pumpkin candle holders for a Halloween look or candles in yellows, burnt orange and mellow browns for an autumnal display.
- Sometimes just finding a safe, highly visible spot to put your jack-o'-lantern is an issue. If you are not using your fireplace for fires, it is a great place for
your jack-o'-lantern. Being designed to hold fire, it is a super safe place for a jack-o'-lantern with one or more candles inside it. Put jack-o'-lantern on your
fireplace grate or you can place it on the floor of the fireplace. Your fireplace is the visual focal point of a room, so featuring one or more lit jack-o'-lanterns
there can be either the total extent of your Halloween decorating or a striking main decoration.
- If your fireplace is currently just an empty black hole, a fireplace candelabra at Halloween can keep it from suffering from the Black Hole Syndrome. These
delightful fireplace accessories are easy to adapt for each season or holiday
simply by changing the candles you use in them. For
Halloween add to your fireplace candelabra orange and black candles, or candles in the shape of pumpkins, jack-o'-lanterns, candy corn, witches, ghosts, goblins, skeletons, skulls, or
Fireplace candelabra are great for getting the welcoming glow of firelight in your hearth without the hassle or heat of logs. We have
fireplace candelabra not only in traditional black cast iron, but also in copper and silver tones. Some of the fireplace candelabra we offer are designed to hold votive candles or tea lights if you prefer those.
