I love to decorate the parlor mantle seasonally, and it is always fun during the month of Halloween.
On the lower mantle, two mercury glass silvery pumpkins top vintage, leather bounds books.
My favorite oak crested bowl is filled with gold-leafed pumpkins, glittery hands, and a crowned skull.
There are insect specimens sprinkled here and there along with a faux barbed wire garland.
On the upper mantle, two skull and crossbones votive cups add pizzazz.
My large clam shell at the base of the mantle is filled with pumpkins, glittery chains, and faux bones. (Notice! I have not gold-leafed the inside yet.)

BOOtiful parlor mantle, y’all!
