I am always in favor of doing simple DIY projects that will add a punch of pizazz to a party. For Halloween, these spooky pictures frames are the perfect project. Line them up on a mantle, place them in a group of three on on your table or place them in your entry way. Here is a simple DIY Halloween project from Christine of Just Loverly. Thanks Christine!
What you’ll need:
-Picture frames that are 8×10 or smaller
-Black spray paint (flat)
-Spooky images to go into frames
-Remove the glass from your picture frame. Dust it off and then apply the black spray paint to cover the frame. Let dry.
-Find images to print that will go into your frame. Christine says:
“The first place I looked for eerie pictures was Graphicsfairy.blogspot.com and she did NOT disappoint! You can get all the images I used in this DIY either under the Anatomy section or the Halloween section. They are so great, I just hope I can do them justice!”
-Print, cut, and place in your frame.
-Place spooky chic frame on your mantle or group in a set of three for a spooky centerpiece.
So simple! Thanks Christine for sharing this DIY Halloween decor idea with us!
So, I decide to throw my husband a surprise sports themed birthday party. The only glitch was I had just about 3 weeks to fully plan and execute it. Yes… 3 weeks. Now, more miraculous feats have been accomplished (I am sure of it), but there was one snag — we were going on a 2 week vacation. On top of that, half of our time away we would be completely disconnected from all phone and Internet access. HOW was I going to do this? Well I knew what had to be done first, a killer sports party invitation was needed.
Thankfully I was able to enlist the help of a very talented designer, Kori Clark of Paper & Pigtails. I’ll be honest, at first I was worried she might not “get” my vision. I didn’t want a kiddie invite and of course nothing cheesy. I just wanted… well… I wanted… I had NO clue. I was absolutely no help in conveying what I was looking for. So, how did Kori respond? She said “I got this.” And overnight she had sent me a proof of the best invite I could have imagined (had I actually imagined it).
Here is the proof she sent me (front):
I just loved by the use of fonts here! Check out the rest of the details (back):
All the party details were cleverly incorporated and I loved it! Here is an images of the print version:
