Halloween Mantel

I think I am DONE with Halloween decorations.  I finished my mantel yesterday and I really like the way it turned out.  I'm going to start by showing you what my "normal" everyday mantel looks like.  I'm showing you because I wanted you to see that I didn't take anything down to redecorate it.  I simply just decorated around it to make it look more festive!

Everyday Mantle


Halloween Mantle


Here is the witches hat and pillow I made.  I also scored these branches from Pottery Barn Kids forever ago for cheap.  I usually put them outside but our porch is a little smaller with this house, so I decided to just put them on our fireplace.


I love the witches legs. 


I SPRAY PAINTED an old Christmas wreath black.  I wrapped some Halloween lights around it, added a few glittery spiders and made a bow.  I used a suction cup to adhere it to the mirror.


Here are the glittered candles I made with mod podge and glitter.  I also just took some leftover ribbon and wrapped it around the plant with hot glue and then hot glued a spider to it.



Thanks for stopping by!
