Halloween Decor and aDIY!

My mantle, and bookshelves all decorated for fall.  Garlands from Michaels, crows from Dollar Tree, pumpkins from Xmas tree shops, ghosts from Target's $ spot, happy Halloween garland from Michaels, apothecary jars from Kirkland's, IKEA framed leaves that DH picked for me. 

An inspiration picture (not mine, found through google search on Country Living):

And here's my creepy sofa!!! (cheesecloth-found it at the dollar tree)

And finally my DIY chalkboard!  I used a PB signature frame that I never used for our wedding and used only the backing of the frame and painted it with primer then chalkboard paint. I draped some more of the creepy cheesecloth around the frame as well.  The pumpkin on the table is a candle- from B&BW and smells AMAZING.

**Oops, forgot to close that drawer.  Nevermind that!**

 Hope they inspire you, and you like them!  Let me know what you think :)  Happy Halloween!

Very cute! I especially love the blackboard. My husband hates chalk, though, because he's a teacher. I wish I could have one!

I went to the Dollar Tree looking for the crows...but had no luck. :( I love them!

@ Susan: Thank you :) I have been on the search for a chalk pen...if that's even possible to cut down on the chalk dust.

@ Amy: Thank you! Check back at the Dollar Tree next year around August. They have been carrying them every year!
