Halloween mantle decorations...part 2


The Halloween mantle is coming along spookily!  I have a few more finishing touches to add before I'm ready to declare it finished.  So far, I'm loving it!

My second phase went a little something like this...

1. Find a funky mirror that I could paint glossy black!

This one would do just fine!


I taped off the mirror part and started spraying away. 



And because the paint I was using had a matte finish....I topped it off with a glossy coat.



2. Cover wooden letters that spelled BOO with our specialty foil paper. 

I used Mod Podge to stick it down and then trimmed the contour with an X-Acto knife.


After the glue dried, I sanded the edges and painted the backs & insides black.  I love that you don't have to be too careful with your painting.  A little black on the edges and front just seems to fit the occasion.

3. Add more glitz and bling of course!

A few years ago, I covered 3 fake pumpkins with glitter.  This year I wanted to give them an equally sparkly friend. 

So....I painted another fake pumpkin black and covered it with orange rhinestones.


4. Arrange all decorations on the mantle.


I still want to add a mini banner and spiderwebs and then I'll post the finished project.

Happy Decorating!
