Also, to give credit where credit is due, about three of the bats are actually Martha Stewart paper bats, that I purchased at Michael's last year. The package had quite a few, but I must have thrown away the ones I used last year, so I didn't have enough to complete the look I wanted for the mantle. I ended up using the original to create a pattern, and cut the rest out of black card stock. I used a hole punch for the eyes, and folded them according to the original pattern. I think they came out pretty nice, so I'm patting myself of the back for that. I hope you like the photos!

|I added a throw from Target, and a pillow from Ikea to bring in the accents of black and white, I wanted.|
|Here is an overall look at the area, all decorated up! The gold and black pumpkins are from Target, as well as the pumpkins in the tray. I've had the owl for quite a few years, and think he will be keeping this spot this year.|
