Today I’m taking a departure from food and recipes for a fun craft project for Halloween. These DIY Halloween picture frames are easy cute and fun to make. Every thing I used to make these frames came from one of my favorite stores, Dollar Tree.
If you’re not familiar with Dollar Tree, everything, and I do mean everything, is a dollar. It’s perfect for crafts for kids (and adults), activity books for kids, and so much more. These are more than just photo frames. You could also frame a sheet of lined paper to use these as a menu board for a Halloween party.
Why did I decide to make frames? I collect Halloween frames and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to have some fun and make my own. I take a lot of pictures. A lot! I’ve spent a fortune on frames through the years.
Sometimes it’s hard finding frames that I like or that orient the right way, either portrait or landscape. These two frames can work either way, depending on your photo. I inevitably buy a frame that I thought was cute and forget to take a photo to fit the frame. When you make your own, that problem disappears!
These DIY Halloween Picture Frames are the first in a 3-part series that I will be doing in conjunction with Dollar Tree and some blogger friends. Terri from Our Good Life is our gracious hostess. November will be a Thanksgiving theme and December a Christmas theme. Just wait until you see those fun and festive posts! More holiday fun is on the way!
What you need to make DIY Halloween Picture Frames:
Black and Orange Glitter Vase Filler
How to make the frames:
For the Glitter Frame:
In a random order glue the glitter vase filler onto the Special Moments Black Plastic Picture Frames with Silver-Plastic Trim, keeping the silver trim exposed for detail. It’s not necessary to cover every part of the black frame. Use various sizes of the glitter spheres next to each other for texture and contrast. Allow glue to dry for a few hours.
For the Googly Eyes frame:
Glue googly eyes in opposite corners of the Special Moments Embossed Wide-Edge Black Plastic Picture Frames, about a quarter of the way on either side of the corner. Do not overlap googly eyes. Allow to dry for a few hours.
I chose to use black frames because it’s Halloween and it would be OK if the frame wasn’t completely covered.
