DIY 'Spooky' Halloween Frame- Super Duper Cheap!

Hey crafty friends!

This week, I didn't create a card or scrapbooking page, rather I created a DIY spooky halloween frame for my door!  I've been blogging and came across soooo many cute ideas!  Infact, I've linked this project up to Here Comes the Sun. You should check out all the cute ideas that have been linked up!!

I had this old frame that I found in my hope chest weeks ago and wanted to do something with it but the glass was missing (why I kept it, I have no idea):

So I gather some supplies that I had on hand already- Cotton Balls, a white tshirt, hot glue gun, Tulle Ribbon and regular ribbon.  I purchased some spiders at target for $1.  Actually, my son threw them in the cart- he's 3.  He thought they were pretty cool...and they are.  So, I put them on the project :)  Here are my supplies:

I was hoping the tshirt would give the project sort of a mummy effect.  To be honest, I wasn't sure what I was going to do so I just grabbed a bunch of stuff.

This is how it turned out:

Here it is hanging on the wall but I wanted it on the door so I dug out my Christmas Wreath hanger:

Spooky! AND super duper easy and cheap to make!  $1 and it was completed while I made supper!  That's my kind of project!!

Thanks for checking out my project!  Come back again to see the halloween wreath I made!
