The Halloween Mantle

I heart my mantle. I really, really do. It's fun to decorate!! All last week, I shared with you Halloween candle holders I had been making. Over the weekend, I decorated the mantle with them and some other things I had made. I've never really decorated for Halloween too much before, other than a pumpkin here or there. In fact, I've never really decorated that much for any holiday besides Christmas but I think that might be changing.

Left end of the mantle
I made the Spells book by just covering a book with scrapbooking paper and adding sticker letters.
I made the candy corn garland out of ribbon and cardstock.

Middle of mantle
The trick or treat family is simply a black frame with scrapbooking paper inside and letters I cut using my Slice.

Right end of mantle

Close up of the boo frames
These are just frames I bought at The Dollar Store. I spray painted them black, cut scrapbooking paper to fit the inside and cut out the letters with my Slice.

And that's the mantle. Love looking at it!

  1. How cute! And I'm so glad you're decorating your mantel other than at Christmas! It's so fun to change it up. I decorate mine around 6x's a year :). Thanks for linking up to the mantel party!
