Okay, the Halloween Mantel Decor is complete and I still have 1/2 a month to go! I decorated it with items many sparkly things and mainly from dollar stores.
The sparkly pumpkin garland is from Target Dollar Spot ($2.50)
The sparkly owl is from Target Dollar Spot ($2.50)
The black cloth, skulls , crow, headstone, and spiders are from the dollar store
The pumpkin topiary are really spray painted pumpkins from the dollar store. You can find my tutorial for those here: http://cleverpinkpirate.com/spray-painted-dollar-store-pumpkin-topiary/
The Ghostly Chevron Decor is simply a piece of cardstock from Canvas Corp and vinyl. You can find that tutorial here: http://thinkcrafts.com/blog/2012/10/13/halloween-chevron-ghost-decor/
Remember my Summer Subway Art Frame from the Summer Mantel? Well I went ahead and spray painted the frame Krylon Pumpkin Orange and inside is the Crafted Sparrow’s Printable Halloween Subway Art which you can find here: http://thecraftedsparrow.blogspot.com/2011/10/holloween-subway-art-free-printable.html. I decorated the glass with glow in the dark spiders from the $.99 Cent Only Store.
Isn’t this the cutest candy jar?! I got it as a gift from Lizzy Jane Baby and she has a tutorial for it here: http://lizziejanebaby.blogspot.com/2012/09/diy-candy-jars.html
What I love about this DIY candy jar is it’s cheap and simple to make with items from the dollar store! Also, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, those are caramel candy corns. YUM!
Other spooky sightings in the living room:
Don’t mind the dust but this Spooky Garland Banner was easy to do with the Silhouette, check out my tutorial on Create For Less: http://thinkcrafts.com/blog/2012/10/10/spooky-die-cut-halloween-garland/
So this will be the first year I also get to decorate a Piano Mantel! I kept it simple with a few skulls, hanging skeletons and sparkly spiders from the dollar store.
The black pumpkin was in our stash and I think came from Michaels.
This is just a light up pumpkin we had in our stash with a felt web from Dollar Tree.
