For a born procrastinator like myself, that is a little baffling. I feel like in the past walking into stores with Halloween décor made me roll my eyes and think "ugh, it's too early! It's still September!"
But I suddenly find myself preparing to decorate for Halloween.
Me, the procrastinator.
And if I'm being perfectly honest, I even started planning three weeks ago. In August.
So without further ado (because by the time you read this I'll probably be pinning Christmas inspiration), here is my Halloween mantel.
I printed my favorites either as-is or after layering them on a parchment paper background which I found here.
I framed them using a bunch of old clip frames from Ikea I had leftover from a project. I was tempted to purchase new black frames, but I decided to work with what I had.
Next, I spray painted some sconces I had on hand a glossy black and then made bleeding candles to go in them. (You've probably seen tutorials using red candles. I used crayons!)
