Earthy Orange & Cream Halloween Mantel

This mantel feels a bit more earthy than my Batty Turquoise mantel from last week. The free eye chart printable from Jen at Tatertots & Jello had to make a return because I love it so! I'm not really into "gory" Halloween, hence the pumpkins and "candy corn" vase, but I did add a touch of fright with the skeleton banner. Just a tiny, baby fright, really. 

The pumpkin art tutorial is here. The candy corn inspired vase is a yellow vase I already had, which I covered with a strip of orange burlap and a strip of cream burlap. The strips are held in place with thick twine. 

The banner is made from my Fall banner, which I turned around so the word "Fall" wasn't visible. I picked up the skeletons at the dollar store and stuck them in the banner with cardstock letters spelling "EEK".

My vase is filled with sticks I found in our yard. They add the perfect amount of height and contribute to the earthy vibes going on with this mantel!

  14. Clean up any spilled oil and pour the used oil in a container to drop
    off at your local recycling center. A motor oils pour point tells
    you how well it handles cold temperatures without gelling (solidifying).
    According to the oil manufacturers, it is generally
    suggested that you use high mileage oil in any car with an engine that has over 75,000 miles on it.
