I had several versions of my Halloween mantel going but decided that I wanted something a bit more spooky than I've done before which has always been just an amped up fall mantel. Here's where I ended up.
I think the lanterns from our screen porch really add the darkness that I was going for. The only new things are the birds (Michaels) and the twiggy looking things on the tall pillar candles (from our local pharmacy while waiting to get my flu shot!).
This might be my favorite mantel design ever!
