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).
