Halloween Mantel under $25

I am normally not one who goes all out with decorating for the Halloween,
but this year I thought some nice mantel decor would be fun and festive!
Keeping my budget in mind, I wanted to stay under $25!!

Here is what I came up with...
Everything 
{except the mirror, which I had} 
was bought at the Dollar store or the Target dollar bins!

I decided to spray paint the wreath all BLACK! 
I think it gives it a spooky look ;}

The hurricane jars were made with
a vase and candlestick holder from Dollar Tree!
I found this great idea from Decor Chick 
where she can show you how to make your own!!
And of course what doesn't say Halloween better than candy corn 
to fill those chic hurricane jars ;}

I was noticing a lot of PURPLE in the Halloween decor out there this year,
so when I found the glittery Trick or Treat sign, 
I had to have it!

I picked up the mini pumpkins on our family trip 
to the pumpkin patch :}
I haven't been able to find my tea light candles,
but I was hoping to do this with them!

And the grand total...
$24.50
How did I do?

On another Halloween note,
we finally decided on costumes for the girls...
Cadee is going to be our girly girl giraffe ;}
and Aria the bouncing bumble bee!
{pics coming soon}
More Halloween fun over here!

Happy Halloween,
Erica
