Well here we are with a 5pm post that I meant to post first thing is morning ;)but things have been SO BUSY around here lately. I can only imagine how much more crazy it will be once our little boy arrives in February! I posted a few of these shots on my instagram last week but wanted to share our Halloween Mantel and a cheap and easy DIY I did as well.
Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday! My husband isn’t really into it so i’m beyond excited that now I have Ava to share in all the Fall Festiveness! We have been pumpkin patching, cookie baking, pumpkin carving and decorating the house! Ava likes to call them “Hallowrations”. I guess it is a cross between halloween and decorations lol We also committed to throwing a Halloween party for a few our friends and families so I hope to have a full post on all that soon!
First up this pretty little arrangement I made! It’s perfect as a gift for a friend or used as a centerpiece!
The best part is it literally cost $10 to make! All you need are two bundles of Fall flowers and a medium size pumpkin from Trader Joes. Carve your pumpkin and snip and place flowers as you normally would in a vase… Easy peasy!
Now onto our Halloween mantel……..
This year I purchased a couple candle bras from Michaels and stocked up on black candlesticks. I reused our Pottery Barn crows from last year and some spider webs from Target (ps these are a lot more difficult to put up then they look lol). I also snagged these Two black skulls (which are actually candles that I snipped the wick) and a pre-lit Trick or Treat Burlap banner from Target as well! I’m so happy with how it all turned out!
Next up Halloween Party Decor!
