A Halloween "Mantle"

Did you miss me?

Well, I’m all moved in, almost all the boxes are unpacked, and we are settling in.  It’s been fun decorating a little in the new place (I will be posting some pics this week) and I had a little fun decorating a “mantle” on my front porch for Halloween.  And, I’m ready to get back to blogging and some projects!

I’m usually not a big Halloween decorator since my kids are all almost grown, they don’t really get into any more.  But I felt a little inspired by all the mantles I saw over at Home Stories A2Z’s Halloween Mantle Party and thought I would join in.  I hope I’m not too late.

Since I don’t have a mantle in this house either, I decided to make a vignette out on the porch for the trick-or-treaters to enjoy next week.

I mostly used things I already had.  but picked up a few things at the Dollar Tree to complete it.  The chalkboard is actually a print from a Goodwill frame that I spray painted with Chalkboard Paint covering the ugly interesting painting.  A few ceramic pumpkins, crows, leaves, and grave stone from Dollar Tree.  Oh, the caldron is from Dollar Tree too, with a stick out of the yard that I sprayed black.  All sitting on a coffee bag covering an old drop leaf table I haven’t refinished yet. 

Looks a little spooky, huh?

Are you ready for Halloween?  Do you decorate for it or just for the Fall season?
