OK, so for those of you who know me, I LOVE Halloween! Not because I am morbid or anything like that! HEHE! It is just so much fun to decorate and create things for this holiday. Each year my family and I transform out home into a cute Haunted house and love every minute of it! For the next several weeks I will be posting projects and ideas for the upcoming Halloween season. I am doing it now so that you can have these ideas ready when Halloween comes around!
Cute vinyl Halloween words in frames! These are so easy and inexpensive to make. You can run out to your nearest dollar store and pick up some small frames. I chose 4 x 6 and 3 x 5" frames. Choose one frame for each letter. Next go to your nearest craft store, (or scrapbook cupboard!) and find several different Halloween papers that will go together. It is a good idea to think of the kind of motif you will be displaying your word with. One of the papers that I chose has vintage Halloween cards printed on it. I cut each "card" out and placed it in the frame for my background. I then chose a font that worked with the vintage theme of the paper. The other frames, (SPOOKY,) has bright, glittered paper as the background. I then picked a font that was a bit more whimsical.
After cutting and placing the paper in the frames I placed the vinyl letters on the outside of the frames...on the glass. Be sure to always clean the glass with alcohol prior to placing the letters on it.
When displaying your words, mix it up! You can arrange some of the letters on their side and stand the others upright. You can also stagger the frames to create more visual interest. Another fun idea is to use different fonts or font sizes on each frame!
