Halloween mantel

I'm sharing my Halloween mantel today.  


This mantel is inspired by The Hive- my sweet friend Melissa's boutique.  I was able to go to her fall show and came home with such fun ideas and products!! 


I've had this layered frame in my stash for a long time.  It was a blue damask pattern and while I loved it, I never could find a place for it.  So I gave it a coat of chalkboard paint (after seeing something like it at The Hive) and drew a little chalk spider and web on it.  For the inside, I used some cute Halloween scrapbook paper.  The little owl is an led light from Target last year.  


I put my chevron art back up with a paper Halloween banner.  Also shown is my fave 31 from The Hive, and a bitty pumpkin on a handmade candlestick.  


Since I'm loving the chalkboard so much right now (and always) I covered this frame from my stash with paint too.  I framed some more scrapbook paper and hand wrote a little Halloween greeting on there.  The candle (Target last year) lights up too.  


For the banners I used the black, glittery felt triangle one from my daughter's Harry Potter party.  Then I sewed a quick paper banner with orange circles and a bat punch.  



I just realized Halloween is a little over a week away and I still don't have costumes for my kids.  EEK!  I better go get busy on them!
