JUGS108 Vintage Halloween

DSCF9227

I wasn’t going to do any more Halloween stuff—it’s HERE already! But I had some time yesterday to play in my craft room, and I had been kicking this idea around in my head for a long time, and after seeing the JUGS Wild Card challenge 108 (alter a frame), hosted by my sweet friend Elise, I just did it! I am not sure if this really is altering a frame; it is more like altering what was in the frame! So here we go:

I got three long frames (16”) at a yardsale for $3—I dissected one and just slapped on a bunch of vintage Halloween images from the Graphics Fairy, Heartwarming Vintage and Crafty Secrets. I added some glitter and a little tiny bit of stamping & shading, but mostly it was first-grade cutting and pasting!!!

It was a fun project though----I have ideas in my head for the other two frames now! Thanks for visiting and have a fun Halloween! And don't forget my blog candy here!

How did Cassidy like all the snow?

These vintage images are delightful - I love them - probably because I am rather vintage myself :)

You found a great bargain with the frames and made them so perfect for Halloween! Miss Cassidy doesn't seem to like what she's touching in today's picture. I think I can hear her saying "ewww" LOL

What a great decoration for Fall. These would also make an awesome inexpensive gift (great yardsale find) for Christmas without investing too much money. Terrific idea!

LeAnne - this is fantastic. I love what you did with the frame. The vintage images are wonderful and I look forward to seeing what you do with the other two frames you have. Is a Christmas one on the horizon? :)
