$1 Spooky Picture Frame

For the most part, I like my Halloween decor to be sophisticated with a touch of spooky rather than having goofy pumpkins or gruesome corpses. I also like creating things that can be used in my slightly spooky decorating year-round. Which is why I really like this project. Well, that and it was really easy!


All I did was take a Dollar Tree frame, add a few coats of glossy black spray paint, and slide in a lovely photo of my late Grandma (she is the one on the left). You can also find creepy old photos online if you would prefer something spookier. I liked using a family photo though and I think that particular one goes well with the frame.


I love how it turned out and along with the candelabra that I found at a thrift store for 75 cents, I think it compliments the antique radio that was looking a little bare when I showed it to you before.
