Here is how I decorated my mantle for Halloween. I wish I could show the entire mantle (which is as wide as the room) in one picture - but with my low-budget camera this isn't possible unless I stand very far away - and then what would be the point? :)
Last year I decided to alter some antique cabinet card photos to make them part of my Halloween display.
These are not pictures of any of my relatives or ancestors. I just happen to like antique photos and have collected several over the years. I decided to repurpose some of the more "creepy" looking ones to use for a fun, vintage-looking Halloween display. Here are a few that I altered.
Some old children's shoes and a clock set to midnight are out with the photos.
A page from a old book about birds.
A vintage seed packet.
A great vintage book.
I'm really enjoying decorating this season!
