Halloween Mantle!!

My Halloween decor is finally coming together! I'm so excited to finally have a mantle! I will share with you in the next post about to make a mantle just like mine for FREE! Yes, all of that holding up my Halloween decor was FREE.99!
Anyway, here it is....
Since I don't have a fireplace underneath my "mantle" I have my sofa table there right now. I figured my ceilings are so high and there is a lot of room under it that it needed something. I had my couch there, but my husband thought that wasn't the most brilliant idea seeing that we have 3 very active kids and all. It adds another surface for decor I guess!
I still need to put up my Halloween banner, it's just not finished yet because I can't decide how I want it to look!

I made lots of chalkboard pumpkins last year and never put them up because I didn't have a mantle or any surface for them, now I do, and they are everywhere! :)

I found this awesome birdcage for $10 at my favorite thrift store in town, Gypsy Mama's.  I put a black bird in it from the Dollar Tree. For a girls night craft we made these cute book page wreaths that are EVERYWHERE! I have been wanting to make one for over a year now, and it took a girls night to finally get it finished! 
Sorry for the sideways photo, can not get this thing switched the right way for the life of me, I tried several different ways and it seemed like they worked until it loads on this page!

This is the start of my centerpiece for my dining table. Another chalkboard pumpkin, spiders that are all over my house because my son keeps putting them everywhere. (I told him one would be fin,e but he wants the whole bag out!) Then I made a quick place mate table runner, following the same steps as all my other place mat table runners from the dollar store!
I tried not to go with orange because I wanted more of a vintage looking Halloween this year. What do you think? I of course had to throw in my 2 favorite colors of purple and turquoise!

I will be back later to share with you how to make yourself a mantle for FREE!!
Have a happy weekend!

Love the mantle! Would not have thought of using blue but it works and adds a nice pop. I am a new follower from Tatertots and Jello. Vicky @ www.messforless.net

Wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays. Hope you'll be a part next Sunday too. the link opens at 7pm on Saturday night. I think you'll see more traffic if you link earlier. Hope so!
