I am so excited to show you this year’s Halloween Mantel!
I mentioned in my Crystal Ball Candlesticks post that I loved the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. Inside the hallway is a little cross stitch sampler that says Tomb Sweet Tomb and I have wanted to replicate it for ages. So this year I decided to do a Tomb Sweet Tomb Halloween Mantel!
It’s all black and white – lace and chains - and spooky skeletons and stitching. And I love it!
The main focuses are the stitched Tomb Sweet Tomb art and the little skeleton cameos. I will have patterns for both of the for you this week!
Rather than do a full giant cross stitch for the Tomb Sweet Tomb art – I mean, I love decorating for Halloween but there are limits to the amount of time I’ll put in – so this stitched art is printed on fabric and then stitched. So a little stitching - but not months worth. ;)
You might remember this gal if you’ve been around a couple of years – she was a past Halloween project.
She seemed lonely though, so I thought I’d make her a Mr. Cameo. If you follow along on Instagram you might have seen his sneak peek this weekend.
I love the way the random framed doilies look too, all around the mirror.
I’ve also added my spooky Crystal Ball Candlesticks to round out the display.
I set the whole display off with a feather boa on the mantel and some moss for spookiness – and some chains and lace for little garlands.
I hope you like it! I had a lot of fun putting it together!
