Holidays: Halloween Mantle

With Halloween only a few days away, I wanted to share
 this amazing Halloween mantle by my intern's daughter.

A quick trip to Hobby Lobby provided the necessary Halloween accessories 
to transform her mantle.  I love the way the black bird decals add a sense of 
movement while the banner grounds the display.  The traditional Halloween 
orange has been updated with a deep cinnabar for the candles.

Note the use of odd numbers:  Seven candles, three pitchers, one skull.

There is an art to getting a 99 cent package of spider web to look this good.  
(A skill I have not mastered).

Happy Halloween!
