I’m so excited to share this year’s Halloween Mantel with you!
I just love decorating for Halloween! It’s definitely my favorite after Christmas.
If’ you’ve been around here a couple of years, you know that I tend to go for a Spooky kind of “Haunted Mansion” feel for Halloween rather than anything too scary – if you want you can check out last year’s Gothic Skeleton mantel and the year before’s Mantel on a Budget!
This year I went for a little more bling and we’ve got a whole Witchy Glam feel to the mantel this year!
Isn’t it fun? Here are some closer looks!
I’ll have a full Spider Glam Wreath Tutorial for you later this week – but for now you can see that it’s all fun bling and chains!
We also seem to have a bit of a crow problem – and since we just watched The Birds here, the kids are loving these guys. So is Kato - he tends to steal them and leave them around the house with teeth marks in them.
I’ve got some fun bottles I picked up from Micheal’s and decorated with a little spray paint and some pretty brooches. It’s hard to tell in the photos but there are lots of touches of dark purple in the ribbons other decor to balance out the black and white and gray.
I also made a fun little Banner – it’s all blinged up with beads and velvet paper! (I had no idea they sold such stuff – I love it!) I will have the download for you later this week too!
There’s a little Broom I spray painted black and dressed up with a bow – because you can’t really have a Witchy Mantel without a broom!
I just love how it turned out!
Soooo – what do you think?? I’d love to know! :)
