Pink Paislee Freakishly Fun Frame

Hello!  Today I want to share a spooky and creepy Halloween decor item that you can make in just a short time, and also uses 5 different products!
I used the Awesome Pink Paislee Hocus Pocus collection to make my frame.

First, I used an inexpensive 5×7 frame with stand .  I took out the glass and added a piece of Haunting paper as the background.
Next I cut out a framed shape with my Cricut and Happy Hauntings cart.  I cut two of the frame in the same size, one with Spider’s Lair and one with Skeleton Soiree. I adhered them together slightly crooked to show through to one side.

I cut Skeleton Soiree’s frame and skeleton out using a razor knife, popdotted them both and added them to the inside of the frame. I also doubled up some twine, and added that to a Hocus Pocus Metal Badge, and added that to the side of the skeleton frame.  To creep out the skeleton, I gave him two tiny wiggle eyes.
I also cut out strips of the Skeleton Soiree paper ( reverse) and adhered them around my frame.  I really like this look, it makes the frame look matted.

I cut out a corner spider web ( also with my cricut) and added that to the right corner. Then I added a twine bow to a Parisian Anthology Smoke Element jewel, and hung that from the web.

Lastly I added this cut out spider,  adhered to the side of the frame,  with a blood red gem on it’s abdomen.

My products used- paper, twine, gems, wiggle eyes, and metal badge.  That’s 5 products!! Hope you’ve enjoyed my project today!
