A DIY Halloween Craft


Today I am sharing a very inexpensive Halloween project that I made in about 15 minutes.  It cost less than $4.00!!  That’s not inexpensive – that’s straight up cheap!


This frame was a couple of dollars at Hobby Lobby – it was missing the glass, but the frame is in great shape!  The candy corn scrapbook page was $.49 and this catalog had lots of Halloween pictures.



I added instant grunge with a little brown craft paint.



I glued the clock to the scrapbook page and popped it in the frame. How easy!



What time is it?  Why it’s the witching hour, of course!!!

This very inexpensive art earned a place on the mantel!

  2. Great project! I am absolutely thrilled to have discovered your site. I am so low tech but finally learned how to check my analytics and found that you had been on mine and now I discover you have been so kind as to include me in your side bar. Thank you! I don't have much time this morning as I have to rush off to style a photoshoot but looking thru the posts on your guest bedroom makeover, I am already hooked on Blue Creek Home. The bed ~ well actually everything is fabulous! I adore your style and your DIY spirit. I can't wait to get home this evening to get caught up on your very talented and inspiring approach to decor.
    Thanks again~ Jermaine

  4. This looks so expensive it's not even funny. Fantastic project!

  5. That looks really great! You could even change out the picture in the frame for different seasons. (Maybe store the pictures in an envelope taped to the back) I love the Hallowe'en picture

  6. Oh Rhonda...this is darling!!! I think you got an extra helping of the creative gene...may be it was the one I was supposed to get...hehe!!!
