DIY Glitter Halloween Frame

I am so excited to share this with you!! I was over at Hobby Lobby this week trying to frame this vintage Halloween tin sign and lets just say it didn't work out! It was a unusual size that wouldn't' fit any standard size frame. I was so bummed that I had to make something else just to make myself feel better. Lol! So I decided why not just make a glitter Halloween frame. I LOVE glitter so much!! Anyone else? I'm sure everyone does. Right?! It turned out so dang cute!!  

For supplies, I bought a wooden 8X10 frame from Hobby Lobby and black glitter. I already had on hand some modge podge and a black paint. So to get started your going to want to paint your frame black. I painted mine 2 times. Then I covered it in modge podge and sprinkled the black glitter all over it. Make sure to let the glitter set for about 10 minutes before picking it up. So EASY right? My hubby came home from work and asked me where I had bought this glitter frame from. I was so proud of myself to say that I made it! He was pretty impressed too. It always makes me so very happy when my hubby likes what I make. He is defiantly one of my favorite persons to share my crafting with. 

I thought it would be super cute to put a scrapbooking page in the frame. For the layout I used three different types of scrapbook paper, ric-rac, tulle, and these Halloween embellishments. 

Later on, I plan on putting a Halloween photo of my cute kids from this years costumes. As of now I added a photo of my guy I took a couple of months ago. My little lady is going to be Wedding Cinderella. She looks so cute in it! and my little guy is going to be Spiderman. Muscles and all. Emma is so excited about her costume. She has been wanting to be a bride for years. LOL! She just can't wait to grow up and get married. She asked me yesterday, if I thought anyone would think she was really getting married when she wears her "wedding dress" LOVE that girl!! 5 year olds are the cutest.  

Don't you just love these cute embellishments!! I am in love with them. I bought them at my local scrapbooking store. Love that place!! 

I think the black tulle add's so much cuteness to this frame.

Here it is with a Halloween picture of my little guy in his lion costume!! :)

 This project was so easy to do! I hope you liked it. I LOVE Halloween and all the fun crafting that goes with it. I think I might have a bit of a Halloween crafting addiction. LOL! I can't stop crafting and I don't think that's really a bad thing. It feels so good when you make something cute for your home.

Have a SPOOKY weekend as for me I will be Crafting The Night Away!

I love long as it stays on the project and one speck doesn't end up on my face, ignoring all attempts to be removed :). Your project to make you feel better from your craft fail is ADORABLE. I love that your husband thought you bought it, those are the best compliments. And, I adore that you have an aspiring Cinderella and Spiderman on your hands :)
