DIY Framed Halloween Art

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.

    • Thanks, Natalie! We enjoy Halloween a lot. Not decorating nearly as much this year with baby on the way, but still trying to get into the spirit and enjoy it. This was crazy easy and nice to use up a bit of stash I had laying around.
