Halloween Inspired Mantel

Halloween has always been a super fun day for me, ever since I was a little girl. I have so many wonderful memories of my mami making my sister's and my costumes and taking us out to trick o' treat.  
A tradition I passed down to my daughter, who at the age of 20 still enjoys dressing up and going trick o' treating. Hee, hee, hee. And who also enjoys, along with my hubby, when I decorate for Halloween...I think they have come to expect it every year now ;-)
This year's Halloween inspired mantel I think is my favorite one yet. It was so much fun to put together.
I did use items I already had but also added a couple of new items, like the cute little black and cream pumpkins I got from JoAnn's.
The little skeleton and the paper bats are also new. 
Poor Mr. Bones...he looks dead tired...Hee, hee, hee.
Also new is the Trick or Treat glitter sign I got from the 99 cent store and the Boo banner, which I made.
I cut these little bats out of black card stock.
I love how they look. 
So there you have Halloween Inspired Mantel. Hope you liked it.

Wishing everyone a beautiful inspiring day.

Hugs and Kisses,

Your mantel is so adorable! Love those bats too! Have a lovely week.

Cutting out those bats was a great idea and probably a lot more affordable than buying them that way. The black and white pumpkins are really cute, Mr. Bones also fits right in and looks very relaxed on your mantel... :)

Oh my gosh -- this is absolutely ADORABLE!!! I laughed out loud at the Elf Skulls!! It's so cute and creative and well -- it just made me smile! By the way, my 24 year old daughters still trick or treat when they are home -- last year they went as the twins from the movie, The Shining. Creepy to say the least. Oh well ;)

Your Halloween mantel is filled with creepy goodness, Ana! I love the bats flying across the room. A coworker of mine once opened her fireplace damper and out came a dozen soot covered bats!! She had to have her entire house (draperies, walls, etc) professionally cleaned to get all the soot out of everything.....after the bats were captured. Yikes!
