Boo to You

I got this frame from GW a few weeks ago for $1.  

Even though there was no glass, I was planning to paint it a pretty aqua color with maybe a black wash to accentuate the details.  But then I started doing Halloween projects.  In the end, I turned they kinda ugly green frame into this cute Halloween sign.

I painted the frame, covered one side of the cardboard with scrapbook paper and then made cutouts of the letters and glued those on.  Then I used one of these (finally, I used one!) to finish it off.

Cute, cute, cute!!

  4. It's so cute! I love frames that have a little something extra instead of just plain.

    P.S. You asked about the chalkboard... yes, you spray the glass directly. I do about 6 or 7 very light coats (some say they use only 3 and it works) with the glass laying down. You're supposed to season it too - take a piece of chalk (length-ways) and run it over the the chalkboard. Then wipe it off with a damp paper towel. I usually do one more coat after seasoning but it probably isn't necessary. So far I've made about 5 or 6 and they've stood up without scratching.
