Spooky entry on the cheap

Since I hadn't spooked out my Fall mantel this year I decided to put this together yesterday before my girls got home from school.  I knew they would be excited about it.  I decorated on the chhheeaapp this year, can you say Dollar Tree?  I did buy some of it last year on sale after Halloween, just too good to pass up.

This guy I bought for $2.00 at Gordman's after Halloween.  The books are from Micheal's on clearance and you gotta love the spiders from Martha Stewart. 

Garland, Happy Halloween sign, and the spider web from the Dollar Tree last year, saving money!

Love the reflection of the tree from across the street. 

Apothecary jar with moss, spiders, skull, and bones.....oh scary!  Can't forget about the little black birds, they just scream Halloween.


  1. It looks great, Andrea! That's so smart to buy after the holidays while everything is on sale. The only time I ever remember to do that is with Christmas wrap.

    I love your apothecary jar filled with the moss, bones and spiders... very scary. And I totally know what you mean about the black birds!

  2. That is quite the creep, crawly entry. Great job! I'm actually kind of happy to have the ghosts and goblins go away & just have the peacefulness of Fall & Thanksgiving. Hope you are enjoying your week!
