Hey That's Pin-tastic Monday -- Halloween Style

I must have joined Pinterest in the Fall because this feels like one of my very first pins, and I couldn't swing it in time last year and made a mental note to make it happen this Halloween. I did. There is little time to spare, but I did it and am happy to link up again this week with AP!






My inspiration:



I'm not big on Halloween decor and basically have "Fall" decorations that I can leave up until Christmas comes out, but I love this craft. I went with a basic black and orange color scheme because the Halloween decorations that I do have are traditional, and also decided that I want a picture inside each year instead of just a Halloween printable.

Materials:
Wooden craft frame (4x6, 5x7 -- I wouldn't go larger. Googly eye hell at that point!)
Spray paint
2-3 packs of googly eyes (various sizes)
Ribbon
Letters (BOO, EEK) or Halloween wooden accent

I spray painted my frame, hot-glued on the eyeballs, and finished with a ribbon glued across the bottom, and B-O-O letters that I bought already painted black. J even walked in and said, "That's going to be cool when you are done," a crafting comment not heard often around here!

The hardest part was using a small enough dab of hot glue under the tiny eyes and not spreading it everywhere. I am looking forward to using a picture from the previous year when we decorate each October to see how big everyone's gotten.



Happy Halloween week!
