I finally got around to updating my mantel today.
The beachy-shell theme wasn’t really working for me on this brisk October day!
I hung a round mirror that has been sitting around here for the past few months.
I worked with the black from the mirror and dove into the typical Halloween black and orange.
By the time I took the pictures, the sun was no longer brightening the room so I really needed to turn on the recessed lighting above.
The lighting made things look even more orange.
This little wooden sign is from my neighborhood “spook basket” from last Halloween.
I hope I get some more fun treats this year!
And here is a shot without the light on. Maybe I should have taken them all like this!
Who knows if the mantel will stay this way.
Last year, this is what my fall mantel looked like…
It took me three tries to get to this.
See the other two HERE.
And once again, my 2012 mantel…
I think I like the 2011 one better. Maybe this one will have to grow on me.
So there’s one thing I can cross off my list.
Have you decorated your mantel for fall yet?
