My Halloween Mantel + Printable Spooky Halloween Banner

I finally finished decorating my black and white Spooky mantel! After I researched black and white Halloween ideas for my HGTV post, I decided I wanted to go with it. I was really inspired by Shelley from House of Smiths' Halloween decor. I love how my mantel turned out. I was able to leave most of the items there that are typically there day to day. My mirror and clock from HomeGoods worked perfectly with the black and white color scheme. I also found the adorable Halloween frame there last year {still need to put my own photo in it!}. I picked up the web runner, skull plate and skull pillow at Target. The spooky black crow and white funkin came from Hobby Lobby. Shelley whipped me up a silhouette decal to use on the funkin and she is now offering it in her shop! I used white ruffle pillows from the deal on Groopdealz we featured a couple of weeks ago.


Last week, I hosted Divas {as in Domestic Divas} at my house. If you aren't familiar, Divas is a group of my girlfriends that get together every 3 weeks to eat, drink, chat and sometimes craft. Well, we haven't done a craft in awhile and now that I have tons of party crafting tools, I figured it was time. The girls came over to see the new house, eat a delicious Italian meal {take out, of course...who has time to cook?} and craft! We made this SPOOKY banner using the same paper medallion technique I shared in my Spooky Halloween sign tutorial here. I uploaded the Spooky Banner Letter Circles so you can download and make your own, too!

That skull is scary, huh? I bought that last year and I'm not sure what I was thinking, but my kids aren't afraid so we're good.

How are you decorating for Halloween this year?

Same as usual or did you get anything new?
