Halloween Art

 As Lauralee has shown us, Halloween decor doesn't need to be pricey to be awesome. Inspired by my sister Katy, I created this simple decoration that was cheap and fun to make.

I found the frame at my favorite store (D.I. of course). It was on sale for $2. What a deal! It looked so elegant and Gothic. Perfect for a Halloween something. If you don't want to hunt through the depths of the used, I saw similar frames at Target .

After this find I went hunting for the perfect greeting card. I found the ones that come in packs are better than single cards because they don't have writing all over them. This spider one was in a pack of six at Hallmark for $5.

I then tried to cut it into an oval to fit the frame. Bad idea. Katy gave me the idea to cut out the picture, mimicking the detail as closely as possible. Once it was cut out, I then glued it to some sparkly black scrap booking paper (.69 at Joann's) that I fit to the frame.

After about six minutes of hard labor I was done! It was so easy and the whole thing cost about eight bucks. Not bad if you ask me. Happy Halloween and Happy Creating!

Here it is hanging out with it's fellow decorations.
