My Halloween Mantle with American Crafts

I’m pretty excited about what we’ve got going on here today! As many of you know Halloween is my favorite holiday. I throw a formal All Hallow’s Eve dinner party every year and get really into decorating. So I was thrilled when American Crafts (our favorite crafty supply company) sent us a box of adorable Halloween goodies to play with. Aimée and I got together this week and used these items to create my Halloween mantle. I know it’s not quite October 1st yet, but next Tuesday will be here before we know it, and I just couldn’t wait to share how it turned out:

Do you love it as much as I do? That wreath is a total showstopper, and the American Crafts Halloween Wreath Kit has everything you need to make one. No fussing with coordinating and cutting paper or gathering a bunch of supplies, just grab this kit (sold exclusively at Target stores in the United States), and you’re set to get crafting.

A few quick assembly tips: the decorative papers in the kit come with an adhesive strip already attached, but to speed up the process we just stapled our paper cones. The paper clips (included!) are the magic that holds the cones in the wreath together. In our hot climate (Yes, hot still… here in Phoenix we’re just pretending it’s Fall) we had a bit of trouble getting the included adhesives to stay put while assembling the wreath, but we whipped out our glue gun and had things secure in no time.

I think the wreath is super cute, and when the girls came home from school they were excited about it too. Almost makes you want to run right out and get the Wreath Kit, no? As if you needed another excuse to head to Target…

In the craft supply aisle at Target (over by stationery NOT in back with Halloween stuff), you will find this Halloween Wreath Kit along with other American Crafts Halloween kits including a coordinating “Happy Halloween” sparkly banner. There are a also a bunch of other American Crafts embellishments that are pretty hard to resist. Thankfully none of the American Crafts Halloween items are over $10 and most are under $5!

Aimée was dying over these glittery star stickers and she was practically squealing with delight as we covered little pumpkins with them. Your kids might have just as much fun doing that quick craft.

My personal favorite was a sticker sheet including these “Frog’s Breath” and “Witch’s Tonic” labels. The sheet includes 20 fun stickers for things like Poison, Worm Warts, Crushed Newt and more… so you can quickly create a whole collection of ghastly goodies. OH! I almost forgot about the FABULOUS faux-wood washi tape that is a total must have. You’ll have to hit up your Target to see it… (or maybe I’ll post a glimpse of it on our Instagram today, so follow us there.)

Thanks to American Crafts for sponsoring today’s post and a very Happy Halloween!

  1. Thanks for your photos of this project. Your tips for assembling it are very helpful. I had to augment the glue strips, too, as they weren’t strong enough. I lprefer to use Tacky Tape (sold at craft stores or by Stampin’Up). I like the wreath but found it frustrating.

    Did you notice that the kit contains 12 sheets of paper but the photo on the kit shows 13 sheets were used? Curious.
