Halloween Mantle

I think I finally finished my Halloween mantle. Still playing around with some odds and ends but it will do for now! :) Funny thing is half the stuff up there is handmade! The one thing that bothers me is the painting back there....we have it there year round but it doesnt quite fit the theme for now! Pondering...maybe a nice big mirror?
My Halloween Ribbon Wreath....I used Jen's tutorial over at Tatertots and Jello! LOVE IT!
A little halloween candy for decor....
My little "Haunted House". I found this house as unfinished wood at goodwill for $2 and covered with some scrapbook paper and a little mod podge and voila!

The pumpkin and the kitty were bought, but I made the pumpkin topiary with three $ store pumpkins and $ store candle stick. Not satisfied with the white one, that may end up re done but I like the other two!!
And these last little pumpkins I found in the target dollar section today like this...
I pulled off the plaid and added some halloween ribbon, and voila! Love it!
So there you have it, I am having fun decorating for Halloween and looking forward to having the house all gussied up for Mark's 1st birthday party on Saturday! How is your decorating going? Are you decorating for Halloween or skipping straight to fall?

And just a little cuteness....this guy has not wanted to take his costume off since Grammy brought it over on Sunday!!


  1. It all looks great! And if you ever don't like the backdrop behind your mantel just change it up! I sometimes have a mirror, sometimes a clock, sometimes a painting. You just have some minor nail holes to contend with but no one notices ;).

  2. Did you see the mantle Tater Tots and Jello posted today? Big black mirror? Something like that would be great for your mantle!!


I love your comments!

I want to be able to reply to you...make sure I can by following this simple tutorial! :)
