quit being lazy got around to decorating for Halloween/Fall! Seeing everyone else's great ideas for mantles, outdoor decorations, etc. I decided I just couldn't put it off any longer!! :)
I LOVE what she did with her table, and I knew that the candelabra was exactly what I needed to finish mine!! My mom and I stopped by a local antique shop right by my house (Franklin's on Mobile Hwy. for all you locals), and after looking through the ENTIRE place (which is HUGE), I had given up on finding one there. Just when I told my mom "Gosh, I can't believe we didn't find even one," she says "Beth, I found one!" I was so excited! LOL It wasn't black, but it was heavy and silver, and ended up only being $10. YES!
I also scored a smaller candelabra for only $1 at the same antique store. I love a deal! :) And I think it works just fine! It's in the 2nd picture below.
Here are a few more shots of our mantel with closeups.
I also found inspiration for cute Halloween letters from Beth's mantel at The Stories of A to Z
and her friend Chris's at Just a Girl.
The only frame I had to use for the spider printable was a silver one, but I think it compliments my silver candelabra quite nicely, and since our walls are such a dark chocolate brown, the silver stands out better than black would have. So I'm happy with my decision not to paint either of them black! :)
The lime green letters
I found, that Adam so nicely got for me at 9:30pm at Target, were only $2.50! And they are glittery, which I LOVE! I think it gives just the right pop of color in the center and they were CHEAP too! :) Hope y'all enjoy our little touch of Halloween in the house! Hopefully my crazy fools sweet cats will leave my decorations alone, and I won't find a pile of chewed items when I get home today!
