Halloween Mantel 2016

I am so excited to share my
Halloween mantel with you today!

I usually have my Halloween decor up way earlier.  

It took me a little longer than usual, but I'm thrilled with how it turned out!

I went with a black and white theme, with chalkboards!

Apparently I have a thing for black and white as I did 
black and white last year too. 

I started with my vintage chalkboards.
I really need keep an eye out so I add to this collection.

I added my 31 from my friend Melissa's Hive boutique show.
If you're local to Utah, she's getting ready to have another one in about a month.  
I wish I lived close so I could go!

I made another version of my Halloween spider art and 
added it to the left side of my chalkboards.

My favorite thing I added this year is these bats!
They are the Heidi Swapp collection from Michaels.  
They are battery operated.
I love them so much!

On the ends of the mantel I added some mercury glass skulls 
on vintage, tarnished brass candlesticks. 
I also added a real pumpkin on a small stand.
