Our mantle is ready for Halloween!
My mother-in-law made the quilt hanging above the mantle a couple years ago. It's been our only Halloween decoration until today. I taped two large bamboo skewers together to make a quilt hanger and tied it off with raffia for added strength.
I usually skipped over Halloween and instead favored autumn items that worked through Thanksgiving. My favorite element was nearly free...I removed the pillar candles from the hurricane jars, poured in a generous heap of candy corn (one of Jake's favorites), and nestled those nifty flameless tealights into the candy corn.
I think it's cute and fun mix of what we already had (like the inexpensive Whole Foods flowers) and four new items purchased from Joanns for around $15 (the wooden signs and hangings under mantle). What do you think?

We'll be mingling at these parties this week. Go join in the fun!
