Here’s a tip, trick, and DIY on how to create this look!
Tip: Make sure that you have various amounts of height, this is key!
Trick: Grab different height frames, pumpkins, a large mirror, candelabra just make sure all these elements are a different height!
DIY: Buy a white pumpkin, add some rhinestones to create a web & add a plastic spider to stick to it, easy craft for you and the kiddos!
Tip: Adding a mirror helps reflect a lot of light, if you have a small space, add a mirror! The mirror also helps provide a neutral backdrop and helps create a layered look. Also mix banners, no one said you can only have 1 banner, add a couple to create depth!
Trick: Pick different frames, they can be different styles, vintage and modern. Your local thrift store is a great place to get cheap frames. Spray paint the frames, one black one white.
Overall: Layer frames, prints, and objects to add depth and dimension, and don’t be afraid to get your crafty-pants on to create easy inexpensive decorations! Make sure you have various amounts of height to give the mantle, or table some texture! Move pieces around & take some pieces out, just have fun!
Don’t have a mantle? No problem, decorate your entryway instead, it will set the tone for your house + your kids will love it! Pick up some inexpensive frames, then spray paint them white or black adding in some halloween prints, like these darling ones from Hello Tosha. When it’s not Halloween switch them out for pictures of the kids! Easy gallery wall & super festive for the holidays!
