Day 8! I found a couple of awesome frames on sale at Hobby Lobby a couple months ago and knew they would make perfect Halloween decor. You could search thrift stores or yard sales for similiar frames and just spray paint them black for a Halloweenish vibe. I didn’t want to pay for pricey artwork, so I decided to create my own spooky art on a budget. Link up your Halloween crafts HERE.

Frame (search thrift stores and yard sales)
2 Sheets of Coordinating Scrapbook Paper
Jewel Stickers (found in the scrapbooking section)
Halloween Stencil (I used a wooden bat/spider found at my local craft store)

Step 1: Cut the first piece of scrapbook paper down to size, to fit into the frame. You can trace the insert that comes in the frame and then cut for a perfect fit.

Step 2: Trace a Halloween stencil onto the second piece of scrapbook paper and cut the shape out. If you don’t have a stencil, search the internet for Halloween shapes that you can use as stencils. There are a lot of freebies out there, like this bat or this spider.

Step 3: Glue your cut out Halloween shape onto the first piece of scrapbook paper.
