Tomb Sweet Tomb Halloween Mantel

I am so excited to show you this year’s Halloween Mantel!

Tomb Sweet Tomb 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!

Framed doilies for Halloween

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.

Halloween Cameo Embroidery

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!

    Super cute Mantle!! Love the black and white theme and am SO in love with your Halloween ornament globes. I’ve pinned those and hope to maybe get around to those next year! :) I’d love it if you’d hop on over to my new blog and check out my decor, too :)

    I love it and I already made the candlestick balls and just love them. Would you share what you did to the glass on the hurricane lamp? Hubby was cleaning out stuff yesterday and came across one and I love yours.

  • That is just all kinds of wonderful!!!! The B&W, the chain garland… the embroidered pieces.. and your super cool candle stick creations. Wow.
    It’s pretty stinking AWESOME Bev :) Happy Halloween. Off to pin!!

  • I love it, Bev!! The framed doilies are my fave. I love how they look like different intricate spider webs! Mr. Cameo looks fab paired with the Mrs. And the Tomb Sweet Tomb came out great!!!

    The black and white theme makes this fantastic. I especially love all the black, yet different styles, of pic frames. So goth. Visiting via ‘take-a-look-tuesday’ link up.
