These little candles are my favorite! I love black and white stripes and wanted to incorporate them in the mantel. The black glitter tape (also American Crafts) made the sparkly stripes totally mess free and quick to apply. I did use a little bit of stronger permanent tape at each stripe to make sure they stayed. I wanted old gold candlesticks and couldn’t find them so I carved out some mini pumpkins and put the candles inside using (yup!) Playdough to keep them standing!
The barren walls were a great spot to hang the Embroidery Hoop Gallery Wall (tutorial HERE) since I hadn’t found the perfect spot for it yet. To tie it all in I found the cutest kid-friendly Halloween tablecloth at Big Lots for less than $5 that totally fits my glam theme. It’s vinyl so I can wipe away all our cookie-making messes!
