Crafty Boo Frame

I thought I would share this easy Halloween Decoration that I made this weekend. You could do this for any holiday just changing out the paper and the words.

Supplies you will need.

*Frame ( I got mine for $2.00 at Goodwill)

*Chip board letters. I used Making Memories shimmer jigsaw letters in black lower case. I got them at Michael's. This week in the paper they had a 50% off coupon. That would make them $4.00 for a set of 46 letters

*scrapbook paper. I got mine in the clearance section at Michael's. The black background paper was .20 and the orange was .05


Take out the glass and backing of the frame.

Cut background paper out the size of glass.

Cut out orange or coordinating paper to fit behind the circles of the letter b and the o's.

Glue the paper to the backs of the letters.

Put the paper in the frame then put the glass behind that and then the back of your frame in.

I then put my letters in the front of the frame. (The glass is behind the paper to give it a flat surface.) You do NOT see the glass.

Your frame is now done.

This would be cute at Thanksgiving with the words Thanks, or Christmas with Ho Ho Ho.

I have seen this done with several picture frames with a separate letter in each frame. I don't have a very big table so I just put all the letters in one frame. If you do this please let me know I would love to link to you.
