Halloween Piano Mantle!

I " hallo weeny fied" the top of the piano.

I kind of went with an " Adam's"  family photo theme!   

Here is a sweet little family member dressed for the ballet!

Another family member playing the piano...... 

Little devilish grin!

Family 'BUSTS"

I love the glow of candles!

I made some picture frames from vintage silver casserole dish holders.  I pick them up at yard sales for about a dollar because the dishes have been broken.

This is a piece of burlap that I had on the front porch. GRUNGY, xo I though...use it for Halloween!   It had got stained from some flower pots that were sitting on it. I was thinking of just throwing it away, but... I glued it to the front of the cardboard inserts. ( I should have glued some to the back to cover the bud light logo, lol)

I asked Howard to put some cardboard in the silver trays, leave it to a man to use his beer carton!

So, here are my frames all finished...Howard picked some peppers from the garden and where did he put them!!!!

I added a photo from the Graphic Fairy and wa..laa.

Here is another make do photo frame!  I have a bunch of white frames but could I remember where I put them..No, so I  had to made do.  This is a picture that I got at HL for 90% off one day. Can you see the hangers on the left side? 

This is the back of the photo.

I just hot glued the corners of this cute picture of some goulish brothers. I can easily remove it after Halloween.

So, here is the family room!  I've got the mantle done, the piano, and now I need some inspiration for the coffee table........
