Spooky Halloween Mantel

spooky halloween mantel
It’s almost that time again for all the ghouls and goblins to come out!  I have been slowly decorating the house for Halloween.  We are having a costume party in two weeks and besides a few little things here and there, I’m basically starting from scratch!  It's been quite a few years since I really went all out for Halloween.  I usually just jump straight into Fall/Thanksgiving!

The living room mantel is finished and most of the decorations are from the Dollar Tree.  The cling on’s on the mirror were used on the sideboard in the dining room last year.  To see that post, click here.  I cut the pictures out of the plastic frames and purchased black frames to dress them up a little.  The frames are from the Dollar Tree as well.
drip red wax on white candles for a more spooky halloween
To add a little more spook here, I lite a red candle and dripped the wax down the white candles.  I had to search though all the Christmas candles to find one that was solid red, most were red on the outside and white on the inside, making the wax clear.
