Halloween Mantel

I'm so glad Halloween is on its way! Definitely my favorite time of year. This year is the first year I have a mantel to decorate. Whoo-hoo! It's been so fun getting out all my Halloween decorations. I've made a few new things this year too.

The Halloween subway art was a free printable from eighteen25. So gorgeous!

 I had an extra frame hand that I painted black, then just framed the printable.

The vase I found at a garage sale for $1 - and I got the black river rocks from Hobby Lobby. I found a few branches in my neighborhood - spray-painted them black - and made this spooky little tree. I was inspired by my friend Brooks and her gorgeous black branches last Halloween. (Thanks Brooks!) I made the framed crow tree art. I love how it looks!

Finally, I stitched up the little spider and painted another frame for it. I added the spider web and the word blocks I made earlier this month.

Rounding it out are my favorite Halloween ornaments, some spooky LED eyeball lights, and some fun candy corn candles. I put a black spider web under the whole thing. So happy with how it all looks!

It's especially fun at night with the little lights on...

I have a few more fun Halloween projects to share - coming soon!
