Halloween Mantle

I just updated my mantle a few days ago for all of my Halloween items I just finished. I love Halloween and I love decorating for it. This year I focused in on more of the black and white palette. Not the best light in these photos as it has been pretty gloomy here the past couple of days. 
You can read more about my mantle and how I made it into this here.
Most of the items on the mantle were made by me, with the exception of the 2 signs that I got from Marshalls. I love Marshalls for all the treasure hunting! You never know what you will find. ;)

First up is the spooky-fun pumpkin head. I made it from a Funkin™ that I painted white and added the face. It sits on a vintage Black Amethyst glass candlestick from L.E. Smith.

Then I made a paper mache cone with some vintage-looking scrapbook papers I had and added vintage copy of a crow.

And lastly another Funkin™ that I hand-painted again (they were orange originally) and covered in sugar glitter. This one also sits on a Black Amethyst glass candlestick from L.E. Smith.
I'm selling these on Etsy, but even if they don't sell, I'm more than happy to keep them for my own house!

Now that the mantle is finished, I need to go back to my Fall house cleaning (I didn't do much in the Spring, so now I have lots of dust and dead bugs to clean up) . It's been slow going since I've been trying to repaint my bedroom at the same time. Hopefully I will have DONE photos to share soon. Then I can do the decorating in the rest of the house. Wish me Good Luck!
