#11 Spooky Halloween Mantel on a Budget

I just love decorating my mantel for the holidays but usually don’t do a Halloween specific version. I normally just do a one size fits all fall mantel that takes me through until it’s time the infamous Christmas Mantel. But this year, I’ve been inspired by Frug Elegance to try to do my own version of a Spooky Halloween Mantel.

Doesn’t this mantel inspire you to go outside the box a little this year as well? If so, check out their tutorial for a Spooky Halloween Mantel on a Budget! Oh, and send me your mantel pics, I’d love to see what you come up with!!
