I love Halloween, but I never have the time or the energy to go “all out.” That doesn’t mean I ignore the holiday altogether, though. I love to add a few well-placed, creative touches that evoke the spooky season.
This DIY Halloween Boo Frame is a new addition this year! It looks great, was fun to make, and it’s easy (and inexpensive), too!
Supplies Needed for the DIY Halloween Boo Frame:
- A Frame
- Scrapbook Paper
- Chipboard Letters
- Card Stock
- Paper Punch/es
- Stampin’ Up Dimensionals or Something Similar
- Craft Glue and/or Glue Dots
- Stamps & Ink, Optional
- Spray Paint, Optional
The How-To of the DIY Halloween Boo Frame:
I got the frame at Hobby Lobby for 80% off (a steal), but it was hot pink. Not really a Halloween color!
So, I spray painted it a glossy black. Lovely but tough to photograph. It took several coats, because of all of the nooks and crannies.
At the same time I also painted my chipboard letters the same black.
I placed the frame backing on the back side of my scrapbook paper and traced around it, then cut it out.
I used my adhesive gun to attach the scrapbook paper to the frame backing, then put the backing into the frame.
Once the frame was back together with the scrapbook paper inside, I laid out the letters how I wanted them and attached them to the scrapbook paper with Dimensionals.
Then it was time for the fun stuff: embellishments and details!
I used one of my punches to cut a few bats out of black card stock and attached them to the frame, scrapbook paper, and letters with glue dots.
I stamped a spider web in black in two of the corners.
I tied a small bow with black and white baker’s twine and glued it to the “b” with craft glue.
I put my new creation on the shelves in my dining room along with a pumpkin.
This frame is such a fun addition to my Halloween decorations! And it was quick, easy, and cheap. A crafter’s trifecta! ;0)
You can use any type of frame, scrapbook paper in any pattern or colors, different punches, and letters, and make this project work for any or every holiday! I see Joy for Christmas, XOXO for Valentine’s Day, USA for the 4th of July…. Limitless possibilities!
