A great base for the mantel decoration is a garland to work in and out of the Halloween decorations.

Start with a Twister grass garland and glitter ball garland.

Using two garlands twisted together is a great backdrop to the Halloween blocks, pumpkins and candle holder. I like to use a group of three.

Next add the finishing touch, ribbon.

3 ribbon patterns combined in a half bow are a great finishing touch to the mantel garland.
