Can I tell you just how much I LOVE Halloween? I mean seriously...I have a crazy kinda love for this holiday. CRAZY I tell ya! I mean all the orange and the purple and the black...the pumpkins and bats..the CANDY CORN! OHH EM GEE! Can I just say right now that I am addicted to the stuff. Have you tried it with some dark chocolate chips? If not, you need to. Like right now. I prefer the Brachs Candy Corn and Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate mix myself but you do don't have to like what I do. Now, stop what you are doing and go grab a handful of candy corn and a handful of dark chocolate chips and shove them in your mouth. Don't be all petite and lady like about it. Get a whole mouthful and chow down! YUM-MERS!
Knowing how much I LOVE Halloween, I decided to blog about it. So unique huh? To blog about something you love. HA! I know, I know but I gotta start some where so I figured why not here :) So, thru out the month of October I will be picking a new area/project to blog about that is Halloween related. Today I am rocking the Halloween Mantel.
Isn't she beautiful and sleek sporting her long white candle sticks on the right with orange glittered pumpkins and eye-balled (is that a word) black pumpkin?
On the left the white vase is filled with an assortment of bat and pumpkin pics to balance her out. Notice how I accentuated the waist of a few pumpkins with ribbon to tie all the colors together? Super easy to do. I didn't even have to bust out the hot glue for this trick. I just cut some ribbon and secured it in the back with a thumb tack. Easy peasy! Isn't she just lovely!
Tomorrow I will show you how I made my glittered pumpkins. That's right I made them all by myself because I'm awesome like that! See you tomorrow!
