My Fall Mantle

I have finally gotten my mantle just the way I want it. (please excuse my crooked picture above it - fixing it now!) I am still on the look out for more of the beady floral garland, but it was on clearance at Michael's, so I doubt I will find more this year!

The two candles on each end were a gift from our realtor when we bought the house. I probably will get rid of them soon, but I like symmetry in my decorating, so they make it easy on the mantle! lol The vinyl clings (Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much) were from Dollar Tree a couple years ago. I'm going to be changing them out soon as well...

The hurricane on the left is a Goodwill project I put together.

Then there is the creepy door to the deck....I found this fab "creepy cloth" to hang over it, and a bag with bats, spider webs w/ spiders, and rats!! So the two spiders/webs are hanging out under the cloth, and the rats and a spider are in my candy corn hurricane on the mantle. The cloth & bag of gross stuff came from the Dollar store ~ gotta love that! The spiders on the mantle and in the candy corn hurricane are from Pier 1 ~ they are a bit expensive there, but these spiders are so realistic! I think it was 12 spiders for $4 there.

Here's the crazy thing about me. Now that my mantle is done, and all my fall stuff is out, I am ready for November 1st to get here so I can put all this stuff back in the attic, and bring out my Christmas stuff! I like to enjoy it for as long as I can!! Sick, huh?! : )
