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.)
Step 1 Pull out the filler cardboard from inside the frame and wrapped with the burlap. Use masking tape on the back to secure it in place.
Step 2 Remove the glass and put the burlap covered cardboard into the frame so you can position the stickers.
Step 3 Once you are happy with the placement, pressed the stickers down firmer. Pull the scene out of the frame and put the glass back in. Add your sticker scene and the frame back.
New Halloween art done in under 10 minutes and cost us less than $5. All around win. It looks pretty cool sitting on our mantel with the new glass pumpkin I found at Home Goods last month as well.
