As cute as the pumpkins were on the fireplace mantel, I had a different idea for Hallowe’en decorations.
It’s a little bit haunted forest with all of the twisty branches.
And it’s a lot haunted forest with my collection of skulls.
I had the idea for a little while, but it really came together when Matt’s Mom brought home these silver candlesticks for me. They used to be Matt’s grandmother’s (the same grandma that had the piano). Their tarnished finish was perfect (although I’m sure not up to Mama’s standards–and I’m sure she never thought they’d be displayed with skulls either).
It looks extra spooky with the candles lit (although it doesn’t translate in pictures very well).
Happy Hallowe’en, everybody.
How are you celebrating? Have you decorated for Hallowe’en? What’s your preferred Hallowe’en style: spooky ghouls or cute pumpkins? Does anyone else have a creepy collection?
Love your spooky mantle, Julia! The corkscrew branches really make it look like a haunted forest.
Thanks, Audrey. What did you do with yours?
Perfectly creepy! Happy Halloween Julia!
Same to you. Enjoy your pumpkins!
Those branches are awesome! Love your spooky mantel. (A little late, I know….but I still do!)
Better late than never, Jan! The branches were perfect for the mantel.
