Halloween Mantle....2012

I can't believe Halloween's almost here!  I added a  lot more to my mantle this year then I have in the past and am pretty happy with the way it's turned out.  Most of the things I've used, as usual, are thrifty finds from yard sales and thrift stores to sale items from some of my favorite stores.  

I added feathers and pine cones to the garland  I got at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago
on sale.   The 2 bundles of sticks - $2.00 each at a yard sale 2 weeks ago

Window - $5.00 / witch print on wood - $6.50 from our old store. 
It's signed and dated 2005

Pumpkin man - sale at Marshall's,  $5.99

Crows - $1.00 each at the Dollar Store last year
Skulls - 50 cents last year at Kroger after Halloween

Pumpkin lady - on sale at Marshall's last year - $7.99

This cool Halloween banner was given to me by my BF, Wanda
for my birthday a couple of years ago


Cat garland - a few years ago on sale at Hobby Lobby

At the last minute, I added my vintage pumpkin man in front of the  picket fence
He is from the Good Will a couple of years ago.  We used him for decoration
in our store, where everyone wanted to buy him but I couldn't part with him
The kids thought he was scary but I think he's more cute then scary

Well, that's my Halloween mantle for this year.
Next and soon, I'll be showing you Halloween around the house!
Got to hurry, it's almost time to put Halloween away and get out TK!

Till next time......

You're mantle looks GREAT! I especially love the garland and the witch/window. I pulled out my Fall decorations last week, but compared to yours I need to do some adding to make it look the way I want it to. :) Happy Fall Ya'll from Houston, TX

Your mantle looks amazing!! I really love your wooden witch picture! I love it!

That is the best mantle yet! I just love the flow color and the height of those sticks. I like that is full with out being over crowed. The mantle is always the hardest for me either I do it to skimpy or not enough.

Your mantel looks so fun and festive! I love the painted witch flying above it all.

It all looks so great. The witch is very vintage-y looking and the crows add a great touch too.


Great inspirations for halloween, i like it all. Your black birds is the finishing touch.
Have a happy halloween
