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!
