Witchy Halloween Mantel

Hello friends! It feels like it has been forever since I wrote a post about things around my home. My life is crazy from October through December so it doesn't leave much time for blogging. Please bear with me for the next few months as my posts get shorter and shorter. I did want to share with you my Halloween mantel for this year.  It is themed around my favorite musical of all time! Are there any Wicked fans out there? 


Here is a picture of the fireplace from top to bottom.




These two little birds came from the Dollar Tree. I think the fuzzy owl is pretty cute!



I got this little pumpkin at Hobby Lobby forever ago! I thought he looked good sitting on a stack of books.


No Wicked mantel would be complete without a witch's hat! The hat was purchased at Pier1 about three years ago. I buy a lot of my seasonal decorations after the season has ended because it is super cheap!



I hunted for black and white striped tights forever. Finally, Wal-Mart had some in their Halloween section this year. I think they were about $3.00.  I just stuffed some plastic bags into the tights to make them look more like real legs The witch's broom was bought at Target this year as well and was also about $3.00. The shoes were in my Goodwill pile and were originally black. I am so glad I saved them before they were donated. 



I bought the poster when I saw Wicked in Chicago 5 years ago. My husband and I went for my birthday which just happens to be around Halloween.  Such a great show!


The cut-out bats were bought at the dollar store along with the cloth swag!

I really wish I could keep this mantel like this all year! It is one of my favorites.  Do any of you decorate for Halloween?
