Halloween Frame and Decor

With Halloween coming up I wanted to put out some decorations and add to what I already had without spending a lot of money.  I had some unfinished frames from Ikea and scrapbook paper I didn't end up using I bought for the Boo Wreath.  I decided to make a Halloween frame.  I used the Mod Podge technique.  Initially I thought I'd frame a picture of the kids in the their costumes from last year but I didn't have any printed.  I decided it'd be easier to throw something else together than upload a picture and make a trip to Costco to get a picture!   I came up with a framed bat.  I think it's cute and my kids love it!  Maybe next year I'll have some printed out pictures and frame one of them in the costumes.

 Once I had it on the mantle I decided I needed something else to even out the space so I found another frame that wasn't being used and glued a skeleton to some scrapbook paper and came up with this guy...

Here's the finished mantle.  I'm going to grab some of that webby stuff to add a little more to it.
