My Halloween Dollar Frame

I went to my local Dollar Tree the other day to browse around and see if there was anything I could add some magic too and transform it into something Fab. I came across this plain orange picture frame. My first thought was....Halloween! I love Halloween, it's such a fun holiday and the fact that my birthday is also during this spooky month just makes it even better!

I took my Papertrey "Spooky Sweets" stamp set and stamped those cute little bats all over. Then I used my circle stamp from Stampin' Ups "Basic Shapes" stamp set for my moon. Inside I stamped some Halloween icons using Papertrey's stamps and my spider from Stampendous. The bottom of the frame I used a Trick or Treat stamp that is from G Studio, which I got for a $1 last year...whoot whoot! Also you can kind of see a faint spider web (from Inkadinkado), I wanted it to be kind of suttle looking. I also used my scallops punch from Fiskars and then sponged the edges with some brown ink from Distressed Inks. I used my new rub ons from daisyd's to add some faux stitching. I love the new roll on rub ons, very easy to use! I then added a little ribbon and I was done! Over all I think it turned out cute! I can't wait to put it up for Halloween this year!!
