Mantle Decorations for Halloween


These are my decorations for my mantle for Halloween. I decided to make a homemade banner for Halloween. I am trying to focus on making my own decorations for holidays. Every year the catalog for Pottery Barn comes and there is so much I want to buy. This year I said no more I can make my own decorations that I like for much less. This year in the Lowe's Creative Idea Catalog online they had spider silhouette templates. They are placed in a stovepipe collar for a frame. I really liked how simple they looked I added some glitter to my spiders for fun it took a little away from the simple form. We love glitter at my house. The cost for the stovepipe collars was twenty dollars which was a little pricey. I thought I could reuse them in a lot of different ways and the picture in the middle could be switched out for different pictures. I also added some candy corn to my lanterns. I put some mini pumpkins on some candleholders. It a good start for my first time. Any suggestions for making it better?
