Halloween Mantel

Good afternoon! I don't know about everyone else but I am sooooo ready for some beautiful fall weather! Here in Kansas it has been super windy, hot and dry. Blah. So I have been doing some Halloween decorating and dreaming of  a cool crisp fall. :) I finished up my 2011 Halloween mantel. I did it on a very small budget, the window was 50 cents at a garage sale, the twigs I found in my yard (my trees are taking a beating in this wind). I spray painted the twigs black with a can of spray paint that I had stashed away. The crows came from Dollar Tree along with the gray cheese cloth, and the glittered chip board letters came from the clearance basket after Halloween last year at Michaels. I glued them to the vintage book pages and hung them with some jute string that I already had. I love tulle! I used the black here and there because it adds a different texture. So that makes the grand total just under five bucks! Yea! I also wanted to thank Michelle at {Primp} for featuring my Spooky Halloween Wreath, unbelievable! I had a small panic episode when I saw it yesterday, you made my week!!!

I am linking my mantel to:
