Halloween Mantel 2014

 Good morning ! Last night I worked on the mantel for Halloween ..

I made a banner with book pages and letters cut on my Cricut . I just freehanded the banner shapes and cut 3 pages for each pennant, hot glued them together and then used mod podge on the top of them and to hold the silver glitter on the edges. I punched a hole into the top of each pennant then used ribbon to tie it to tulle ribbon .
 I got the crows at the Dollar Tree store, and also that black drapey scary looking cloth under the banner. I used a branch from a tree in our yard to lay across the mantel for a crow to sit on.
 It even looks good in black and white :)
 Some of the crows hanging out ...I used off white sweater pumpkins to place the crows on..

 My daughter had bought this frame at a flea market this summer for $5.00.. She has been working alot and hadn't got a board cut for it so I asked if I could borrow it for my Halloween mantel . It's a big frame.. the opening is 16 x 24..I got a piece of mdf cut at Home Depot for the inside and painted it with chalkboard paint. So its a win win for both of us ! I get to borrow it and she got her chalkboard :)


 I left the leaf garlands from the Fall mantel and there are white lights added in..
 Crows , an owl and sweater pumpkins..The glitter pumpkins are from Walmart ..I used those in the Fall mantel also ..

Hi Priscilla. I love the Halloween banner! So cute. And it does look great in the black and white shot. I have one of the crows, and love it. I use it in my outdoor display. I have not been able to find more. I will pop into Dollar Tree today.
Hooray for Chelsea's new chalkboard. Looks so great there on your mantel!
Fun stuff! Happy Day!

Love your Halloween mantel! Your banner turned out great, I love the idea of using book pages, I made mine last year from copies of newsprint. :) I also love your birds and chalk board!

Love your mantel! It is so fun and festive. The crows are wonderful! It must take you so much time to set up everything! You must have a big storage closet!
