Halloween "BOO" Craft

My good friend Tiffany came up with the great idea to get together and make these adorable Halloween frames she found online. Here is where she found it online.
I didn't want to spend a lot of money, so I went for cheap :)

I bought 3 - 4"x6" frames at the local thrift store (DI) for only $0.75 each.

I first painted them black. I wanted the crackle paint effect, so I painted light grey over the black, then the crackle paint and last another layer of black paint. You can kind of see the crackle a little in the picture above. It didn't crackle as much as I wanted it too, but that's probably because I rushed the whole process. Lucky for me, I already had paint, so I didn't have to buy any.

  Next I decided to use chipboard instead of purchasing wood letters. I only had one letter O, so I traced it on chipboard I had and cut out a second O. Again, I have tons of chipboard, so no expense there.

I bought glitter for $1 & 2 sheet of scrapbook paper which was on sale for $0.69 a piece.
I love how it turned out and I'm so glad that I have a friend who sets up such fun events so I can be crafty!
