Halloween Mantel 2013

I've finally had a moment to sit down and post pictures of our Halloween mantel this year.  Leigh and I worked like crazy on the new banner, and Leigh and her BFF Christine made the fantastic Skeleton Book Page Wreath. We will post more details on it in October, so come back and check it out.

What do you think?  We just love it!

The banner was inspired by the amazing one made by Jen Allyson over at The Project Girl. Ours turned out larger than hers as it was sized for our mantel.  Check out Jen's detailed instructions on her blog.

We used our Fireplace Witch and Halloween Printable from last year, along with some new pieces that we will be blogging about in October.

Leigh wanted things a little more vintage and spooky this year and not so cutesy.  I think that we hit the mark! Most of our decorations this year will have this look. 

Just a few more days and it will be October!  We're getting ready for our favorite holiday

  10. Oh my gosh! What a cute Halloween mantel. I am loving the witch legs that are coming out of the fireplace. That's a great idea! I have really been wanting to make a wreathe for our fireplace and front door and I love how you made yours out of rolled up paper. That is so unique and so cute. Y'all did a fabulous job on this.

    I’d love it if you linked this up over at Living Well Spending Less for Thrifty Thursday this week! http://www.livingwellspendingless.com/category/thrifty-thursday/

    1. Thanks so much Ruth. Most of our mantel decorations are copy cats of great pins that we've seen. The witch is my favorite and was so easy to do. Thanks for the invite - we linked up!
