Halloween Mantel:{Vintage Inspired}

Vintage Halloween Mantel. Please excuse our cobwebs and spiders as you take a tour around of our Halloween mantel today! What can we say, we LOVE vintage Halloween decor! From our mantel to some upcoming projects, Matthew Mead's vintage Halloween templates can be seen weaved throughout.
 Now be good little children and have a look around!

We wrapped candles in creepy cloth and spider webs
and placed our diy glitter spiders in the web.
