This vintage look Halloween mantel has Victorian flare, maybe a little Gothic, but it still has a fun, not-so-scary vibe.
It’s the work of Sarah Vandiver of Little Vintage Nest for our Halloween Style Challenge. We sent her some mystery boxes of Home Depot Halloween decorations, and let her do the rest.

I’ll be honest, styling this Halloween mantel was way more fun than I expected it to be. I’ve never been one to decorate for Halloween, other than carving pumpkins, but this was a total breeze thanks to all the Halloween goodies from Home Depot many of which are vintage inspired. I’m so excited to share the look I put together; I think it’s perfect for those of us that aren’t into spooky zombie and witch kind of décor. This is Halloween décor with a vintage flair!
I love this small cake stand with the book of spells and magic. Paired up with a few of my old books, I think it’s the perfect combo.
This Candelabra with LED candles is awesome. I put one on either side of the mantel and it balances everything out really nicely. Plus I like that it’s obviously all about Halloween, but it’s aged and has a vintage farmhouse vibe about it.
How cool is this Victorian Phone? It was definitely my favorite piece in the whole look.
I put it in the center of the mantel so it could be the focal point. I seriously love this thing. I’m pretty sure this is the coolest Halloween decoration ever.
Since I didn’t have enough space on our mantel, I wanted to add a few other decorations to the baskets on our wall. That Flash Graveyard Lantern in the lower basket actually lights up. Here it is all lit up at dusk!
So there it is! This vintage inspired Halloween mantel was a fun and easy look to put together. Thanks to the Home Depot décor, all I had to do was throw in a few old books and a couple bundles of sticks — easy peasy, just how I like it. Happy Halloween!
