diy creepy Halloween frames

Hi The Celebration Shoppe readers! I’m Gillian Greding from Seasons Gredings and I’m SO excited to be posting here today! Being that my blog is all about the seasons and the holidays — I’ve been a HUGE fan of The Celebration Shoppe for years!!!

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I’d kick off the season with an easy twist on some spooky Halloween frames!

Normally frames are made to fit specific sized photographs, but I thought I’d switch it up a little and frame some great paper and embellish with a smaller picture. It’s a great, fun look!

Plus, I love that it took me under 30 minutes to do all 3 frames!

Materials: Frames, scrapbook papers (I love K&Company) and scrapbook embellishments. I purchased all of my supplies from Michael’s.

Easy how to steps:

Remove the glass and backing from the frames.

Pick the paper that looks best in your frames.

Trace the glass with a pen to get the correct size for your frame.

Cut out all the papers. Place paper in the frames and secure backing in place.

Now for the fun– decorating!!! Stick the Halloween bunting to the frames.
