Halloween Mantel....SPOOKY!!!!!!!!!

My 2011 Halloween Mantel

I love the way this wreath turned out! Parts of it ended up being a happy mistake! It was supposed to be a double ruffle....running out of burlap allowed me to use one of my favorite materials....TULLE, baby!!!

Lovin' the Halloween scrapbook paper flowers. It took a little finese to get them just right, but I think they look really cute. My favorite is the black and white stripe flower. It reverses to black and white skulls.

I had fun painting all my pumpkins black with gun-metal metallic overtop. Bath and Body Works sells fun sleeves for candles now. The skull sleeve featured here was a steal at 50% off, plus my 20% off coupon. No one loves a bargin more than me!!!!

I got this picture a few years ago at Tai Pan in SLC, Utah. It was only a few dollars. What I wouldn't give to have a Tai Pan here in Charlotte. It's a decorator's dream store!
