Workin’ With What Ya Got- October 31st Sign

I get so excited when I can create fun accents or decor for my home using things I have just lying around.

I had this frame:

I also had this Halloween-ish scrapbook paper from last fall.

 

Then I found this paper matte from an old frame.

 

If you ever get rid of a picture frame and it has the matte on it, save it.
You can always use it for another project, trust me.
I have had this one for over two years just waiting for a project.
Then here are my adhesive backed numbers that I got at Wal Mart this past summer.
I have used these puppies on several projects including my galvanized tins.

 

And these are wall adhesives that I found at Dollar Tree earlier this spring and put them aside knowing that I could find something cute to make with them.

 

Get out your glue stick.

 

I cut the scrapbook paper to fit the size of the frame.
Then I glued the matte to the paper.
I then added the wall decor adhesives and topped them with the numbers 31 to represent October 31st.
 I put them all together and came up with this:

 

Put them under the glass in the frame and here’s what it looks like when you are done:

 

 

 

Cost for me to make? Nothing! Cost for you to make?
frame– go to Goodwill and find scads of these babies, all 4 bucks and under.
scrapbook paper– one sheet shouldn’t cost more than 50 cents.
wall adhesive decor– one dollar at Dollar Tree and they do carry these all the time. You can find them next to the automotive and battery section at mine.
numbers– I got mine in a package of 25 numbers for 5 dollars at Wal Mart. They are back by the garage sale section/ spray paint department.
Less than eight dollars for an adorable craft for Halloween!
