Hello and welcome to a tour of my Halloween mantel. We are a little behind but things are coming together nicely. I didn't really know how I wanted to decorate this year, so I just pulled out my stuff and started arranging. I have an assortment of things collected and made over the years and a couple of new very quick DIY projects displayed.
This photo shows some new things. I left the chevron panel from the fall mantel in place and added a "Beware" pennant banner cut with my Silhouette (pennants) and Slice (letters- Spookey Alley). I also covered the red books that were already there with Halloween scrapbook paper and labeled them with stickers to make some very quick DIY Halloween spell books. Here's a secret- the paper doesn't fully cover the backs of the books, but you can't tell because of the way they are arranged.

Another quick DIY. I saw flameless candles with ravens on the Pottery Barn site. I purchased a flameless candle from Michael's (with coupon) and cut a crow from vinyl with my Silhouette. I stuck it on and now I have my own flameless Halloween candle.
My old Halloween subway art made an appearance again this year.
There's a lot of stuff out compared to last year, but I'm happy with it. Just goes to show how quickly our decorating taste can change.
