Halloween Wooden Frame--an Easy Spooky Addition
This project was super easy. To make this cute frame, I needed:
1 wooden frame
hot glue gun
paint brushes (one older one)
This is a cool technique that I learned awhile ago. I first painted the frame orange and let it dry. Then, I painted it with Elmer's glue. (I used an older paintbrush that I didn't care about for this step.) While the glue was wet, I quickly painted on a layer of black paint. Then, I dried the glue and paint rapidly using a hair dryer. This created the crackled appearance. Once the top was dry, I did the sides each individually. After the frame was dry, I sprayed it with a matte spray. Last, I glued on some little Halloween flair with the hot glue gun.
A pretty easy way to make a cute frame with Halloween spirit!
One note--in a previous post, I discussed how I load up an some of the heavily discounted items during after Halloween sales. Well, here are some of the fruits of my labor!
