SPoOkY fUn.....continued

While I was gathering all the fun Halloween stuff to show you on the blog, little did I know that Paula was helping a friend decorate her mantle for Halloween.  She did a great knock off of the Pottery Barn mantle....check it out!

Here is the Pottery Barn mantle:


.....and here is Paula's version....Pretty good huh!

The headless pictures were downloaded from PB here.  The small frames were under $3 from Target and the larger frames were purchased at a yard sale and spray painted black.  The frames were attached to the wall with Command Adhesive, the others were propped on books.
These books were left over from the "Gypsy Caravan" that we did several years ago.  I tea dyed a gazillion books and we used them in the centerpieces on our lunch tables shown below.  

 They are perfect for this setting!....add a few stray pages up around the frames.

You can purchase a haunted house from PB for $100, this one came from Target for much less.  Both hold a candle inside.

The spiders are a gel like rubber that allowed them to pin directly to the candles.  

Happy Decorating!
