Granted, the black and white effect is what kills it here, but still, we love our Halloween-ed mantel. The pumpkins are all from our backyard, I left some of the branches on them for a more rustic feel.
My boys helped with the decorating, the center display is made up of my oldest's first Halloween toy given to him by his grandparents, some favorite Halloween books, and a souvenir from Disneyland. They also liked my web ribbon so it was added on the sides.
Hope you liked our spooooooooky mantel, I think all the candy up there makes it a little less scary ;D
