Rub-ons, Paint and Pumpkins

I've really been enjoying decorating for Halloween. Tonight I completed several projects that have been floating around in my head for a while. I'm tired and short on words tonight so here goes...

My Halloween Mantel

Did you spot my painted pumpkins?

Using these for inspiration, a little black paint and Max's paint brush I created these:

This little guy is my favorite.

Next, I used this:

To make this:

Cute, right?

Things I learned tonight:

1. Painting pumpkins is not as easy as it looks.
2. When applying rub-ons to glass, forget the little wooden stick and use a plastic baby like a charm!
3. The correct spelling for "mantel".

Question I still have: Do I need to do something to seal the rub-ons on my glass candle holder?

Nite, Nite!


  1. Ohmygosh that candle holder is adorable! I think I might have to make one like that Christmas style. :)

  2. WOW!

    your mantel looks fantastic! super job.

    your silhouette pumpkins are wonderful as well. i love the bunting too!

    thanks for linking up & sharing such a festive mantel!
