52nd Mantel, Halloween Edition PLUS $100 Giveaway!


The time has finally arrived! Today is the 52nd mantel reveal at 52 Mantels. And, to add to the excitement, my fabulous sponsors and I are giving away one FUN shopping spree to either HomeGoods OR Target. How does $100 sounds?! Pretty great, huh?


Before we start the giveaway, let's talk about this mantel, shall we?



Because, it's that time of year, my 52nd mantel is a...Halloween Mantel.

I'll be honest, Halloween isn't my MOST favorite holiday. Sure, I like candy and yes, I like seeing kids adorably costumed. But, that's not enough to place Halloween on my Top Holiday list. However, it's October and I wouldn't dare show you a Christmas mantel in October. So, Halloween it is!


To put together this spooooky mantel, I gathered my dark vases and candlesticks, a plate from Target and some Dollar Tree finds (the felt skull, shiny spider and creepy netting). The skull is glued down to newsprint paper, which is covering a rectangle of foam board. I attached the foam board to an antique window and, ta-da, Halloween Art!



Mantel number 52 is done. The End....

...or is it? Muahahahaha. 

Okay, onto that $100 Shopping Spree Giveaway! Follow the instructions on the rafflecopter, visit the 8 lovely sponsors and....good luck! 

And, don't forget to come back next Monday to link up YOUR Fall Mantels (including Halloween mantels!)

  3. OK, I think I will just breeze right past the Fall mantel that may never get done here, and head right on to Halloween Mantel. Looking good and as my original mantel inspiring blogger I must celebrate your #52 by getting one done.
