15 Tricks To Treat Your Halloween...Pocket Full of Pink

Pin It
Hello all you Katie{Did}It readers! I am so excited that Katie let me join in on the party!  I love a good party, especially a Halloween one!
 My name is Karen and I blog over at Pocket Full Of Pink.  I love to create with paper, wood, paint and old frames!  I especially like to use what I already have on hand! 
Today I want to share with you my Spooky Boo Frame:
Everything I made this with I already had on hand!  Super cheap and Easy:)

Supplies you will need:
-Old frame from thrift store {I got mine at Salvation Army for about 1$}
-Paint {I used Black and Wedding Cake white}
-Sponge brush
-vinyl lettering {or you could cut the letters out of paper}
-scrapbook paper
-sticky back foamie pumpkins {I think I got these at Micheal's}
1. Grab your frame and take the glass and backing out.
2. Paint the frame black using foam brush {I just did 1 coat}.
3. Pick your scrapbook paper and trace the size out using the backing on the frame.
4. Just a cool picture of what my paper looks like!
5. Frame painted and with paper inserted.
6. Sponge brush over black paint with white paint.  I didn't cover all the black. I like the way it makes it look kinda spooky!
7. Apply pumpkins and vinyl lettering to paper {not the glass on the frame!}
8.  Slide the finished masterpiece into the frame.

Now you have a cute decoration that you can switch out with other fun inserts! 

I love interchangeable decorations:)

Thanks to Katie for letting me stop by!  I would love you to stop over and visit at Pocket Full of Pink any time!

Isn't that frame just the cutest?! Don't forget to stop by and say HI to Karen!
