A Somewhat Spooky "Mantel"

Arizona does have some cooler weather areas, but for the most part our state is pretty warm all year round. Because of that a lot of Arizonans, ourselves included, build or buy houses that don't include a fireplace. While we did enjoy the few nights a year we lit a fire in the fireplace growing up, we really don't think it's worth it to have a fireplace here. The only problem with that decision is that we don't have a pretty mantel to decorate for the holidays! We found that the simplest solution to that problem was to buy a decorative shelf and create our own Arizona "mantel."

As per our usual,  it may not be a super scary "mantel", but it has just enough spook appeal to make it Halloween worthy. Skeletons and skulls just don't have as much of a creepiness factor if they are covered in a colorful glitter, and that's just the way we like it! 

How are your mantels decorated this Halloween?

P.S. If you haven't already grabbed your Halloween printable, you can find it here.
