I added a couple of Halloween frames to our decor this year.

Both frames are inexpensive wood frames purchased from Hobby Lobby.  For the BOO! frame I simply painted the wood frame with acrylic paint by Folk Art (color: vivd orange, also bought at Hobby Lobby).  Once dry, I hot glued different sizes of googly eyes to the frame.  I then cut a piece of scrapbook paper the size of my picture opening and added BOO! to the center (I used vinyl that I cut using my Silhouette).  Easy peasy!
For the spider frame I simply used Mod Podge to adhere  1 large (12x12) piece of scrapbook paper to the front & sides of the frame.  I then cut another piece of scrapbook paper the size of my picture opening.  Again, I use my Silhouette to cut out the simple spider shape out of vinyl (don't have vinyl, just use scrapbook paper. it will be just as cute).  I added a couple googly eyes and viola, 2 simple Halloween frames complete. 

I will definately be making some Christmas frames soon using the Mod Podge method.  Maybe I will take pictures along the way and share the process ;)

Have you added new Halloweenish decor to your home?
