If its trick or treat…

Old school mantle

I love the time between Halloween and Valentine’s Day, especially when it comes to decorating around the house. ¬†Unfortunately, with a ‘normal’ size home and a family full of artists there isn’t a lot of room left for decorations, which are primarily relegated to our front door and living room mantle.

This year I am going for old school look.¬† The plan is to buy the vases, paper mache’ and real pumpkins,¬† and make the lighted tree branches and felt ‘Halloween Candy Bag’ banner.¬† With any luck, I can get my mantle tricked out by next weekend – which really will be a treat!
