Here is s look at the "mantel" over the TV. (Hey, you work with what you've got!)
I was feeling particularly in-the-season, so I took some pictures of the mantel with a filter to give things a spooky look. Once you scroll down, there are some regular pictures so you can see it clearly, too.
See more after the jump.
And here are the "real" shots:
*I am linking my mantel to a linky party at The Stories of A2Z. So if you want to see more great mantels, head there!
And this is the cut-out between my living room and dining room. I hung a glow-in-the-dark lettered banner and a stuffed fabric pumpkin on the sill. I'll post pictures tomorrow of the stuff you can sort of see in the dining room. :)
These are just some of the other places I have decorated around my living room that I took picture of with my "spooky" technique.
The pumpkin on top of the bookshelf is my trick-or-treating pumpkin from my childhood. I put orange twinkle lights in it so I can use it, even though I'm grown up now.
I thought the hourglass looked perfectly witchy!
I made the pumpkin stand by gluing a plate and candlestick together. Total cost: $2. Whee! I taped the sparkly skull to another candlestick for a bit of presence and symmetry.
Let me know what you think! I really do appreciate all your comments!
