Our Boo-ti-ful Mantel



I always enjoying looking at the fun halloween decor items at Grandin Road.  I saw these cute ghosts lights and set out to copy them.  Of course they are very in expensive to make.





I started with these white paper lanterns.  Mine had 10 lights.  Grand Road has only 5.
I bought them on sale at Michaels.  Don't forget to use the coupons.


You can use old sheets, curtains and some cheesecloth to make the  ghosts. I doubled the white material I had and then cut cheesecloth to cover the white bulbs.  I tore the cheesecloth to make it look more like floating ghosts.I had some  black chalk vinyl, so I cut out some oval eyes for each ghost.  They were very easy to re-create.



I created the mantel look with this large whimsical hat.  It is sitting on a Mackenzie -Child's gift box.


The cute purple witch shoes are added.  I bought them at Michaels last year on sale.
The BOO sign is from Safeway on sale.

Esmeralda, the good witch sits on top of a pumpkin.


Don't forget on October 12th, a few bloggers and I are hosting a Halloween Tablescape Link party.
I hope you join in the fun!

  19. So clever to use the little lanterns to make them so full! IT turned out darling. We are all decorated too, as I have a party tomorrow night and my sister was here for a week and left early this morning, so I had to get everything done early. So nice to have it done.
