Mysterious Black Halloween Mantel


Halloween is next week so I've decided to take the mantel to a dark, mysterious place. Mu-whah-ha-ha! (Did that sound effect come through??). Of course, my bats HAD to come back for the occasion. How could I tell them to stay away on Halloween?! And, the EEK letters from last week stayed and somehow found a couple more Es. Mysterious, indeed!


Remember how I said I'd find a use for the rest of the cheese cloth used on my Halloween wreath? Well, it was perfect for this mantel. 


I picked up this melamine plate from Target for a couple bucks. The various dark vases and candle holders were gathered from around my house. 
I got the "Boo" sign off the dollar spot at Target. Love the dollar spot! It was glittered to high heaven and left a mess on my floor (and mantel and face and infant) but the mess was worth it, in my opinion! 

Good luck with your last minute preps for Halloween!

  5. It took me a bit, but I realized the reason for the '52' and why you kept changing your mantels every week! Yes, I am a quick one. But, I wanted to challenge you a bit. I don't have a mantel. I have begged my husband to cut down a mesquite tree to make a mantel over our fireplace, but I think that is #150 on his to-do list. Could you do a 'mantel makeover' on something that isn't a mantel? I need inspiration! Thank you for your comment on my blog! I love learning from your creativity.

  7. Love your black mantel! I don't own a mantel, but if I did I would want it to look very much like yours! Your mantel was the "reader's choice" last week on Sew Woodsy!
