I can’t go to Target without browsing the clearance sections. Can’t. I don’t always buy something, but have to look and see just in case. This past weekend was no exception. While my son and I were shopping, I slowed down to look at every clearance end cap we saw and down one full aisle. The latter is where I spotted several frames marked down 50-70% off including one that immediately caught my eye for a Halloween project. I wasn’t even sure what we would make. Just that it had the right “look” for Halloween and, at $3.88, the perfect price too.
After we got home, I dug around in my stash of crafty supplies and ended up with some leftover burlap from his Four-esta Birthday party last year and a set of Jolee’s Boutique Halloween Stickers from ??? – I have no idea how long they have been in my scrapbooking stash. (Photo also shows a scrap piece of scrapbooking paper I thought I might use, but didn’t.)
I pulled out the filler cardboard from inside the frame and wrapped one piece with the burlap. Taping it on the back with masking tape to secure it in place.
Then I removed the glass and put the burlap covered cardboard into the frame so we could place the stickers.
Once we liked the placement, I pressed them down firmer. Then pulled the scene out of the frame so I could put the glass back in. Returned the scene, and my son helped me fasten the back into place.
New Halloween art done in under 10 minutes and less that $5. All around win and it looks pretty cool sitting on our mantel with the new glass pumpkin I found at Home Goods last month.
