Halloween 2011 Mantel

 I thought you might like to see some Halloween pictures.  (The first picture Candice took.  She is so good.) Better late than never right?  Here is my mantel this year in all it's glory.




 It's kind of a bird theme this year with small black birds, crows, a black owl, bird house, and black feather boa.
 Love those 3 M hooks.  I can do all kinds of decorating without adding any holes/damage to my walls.
 I love this garland that Candice and I made together one year.  It was picked up by Making Memories and Target.  Candice posted about my mantel this year.  I'm sure her pictures are better. 




We were infested by a few rats this year too courtesy of the Dollar store.

Love your mantel!

Also love the clock! Do you mind telling me where you bought it?

Thank you!

It was from Roberts, a store that is now out of business. I noticed they had some nice big ones at Lowe's for around $50.

Can you tell me where you bought your Halloween banner that is hanging on your mantel? Your mantel is adorable. Great job on it:)

My daughter Candice and I designed and created it. It was published in Creative Keepsake magazine and picked up as a kit for Target.

Where did you get the bird house and the birds? I'm working on a budget but am having trouble finding it period.

Love your mantel so much! My Mom is in a nursing home and has a large shelf in her room and loves holidays so I tried my best to recreate your mantel. I found a similar clock at Dollar General but with a black face for $15. Then I found the bird cage at Michaels on clearance for $6. Got to love sales! The only thing I couldn't find was the orange strand of beads!

Having trouble finding the flor de lis hooks. I have checked everywhere.
