"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Halloween Mantel 2011

Here are my Halloween Decorations for this year.
I love how it came together, with the help of the dollar store, things I already had on hand and things I found for free.  
 I developed pictures from last years Halloween and hung them up in my fabulous frame.  
 All of the bottles you see were from the thrift store or ones I already had.  I just added some fun yarn to the top to dress them up.  The tree are branches we found up the canyon on a drive a few days ago.
 And that fabulous Halloween Print is available HERE for free.
 I love my bat specimen frame.  I have seen these all over bloggy land and decided to whip one up for myself.
 If you want to know how I made my silhouette banner, 
go HERE for the instructions. 
Happy Halloween everyone!!

My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
