My wall was missing something and I believe yours is too, which is why you are here reading this post. The total for this project cost me $12 (but only because I broke a frame and had to buy another one and I had most of the supplies on hand but STILL, it wouldn’t cost much for this craft). Here are the supplies you’ll need to complete this spooky project…
(8) 11×14 Dollartree Frames at $1.25 each (they come with glass so maybe buy a couple more in case one breaks like mine did, they are so cheap!)
(8) 11×14 pieces of cardstock paper or any paper will do, really. The paper is to make frame matting or find frames that include the matte inside.
(1) Set of Mommy with no Money Vintage Halloween Prints. FREE downloads available in Step 3
(8) Sets of Picture Frame Command Strips (I used two medium size for each frame because the frames are glass and I didn’t want them falling off the wall and shattering)

Remember: you can always add fake blood or red paint to your projects to make them a little more gory.
This project is a skeleton wreath for the door – a perfect welcoming for those trick-or-treaters!
It’s that time of year where everyone is planning their weddings for the summer, so I thought I would make a post about saving $$$ on diy invitations. My husband and I got married the summer of 2014 and we were able to keep our ENTIRE wedding at under $5000.00! It was definitely hard to do and not everyone can keep it this cheap, as we were very lucky to be able to borrow and make a lot of the wedding pieces/services. I’ll start off with giving you some tips on wedding invitations. Invitations can cost a pretty penny if you plan on hiring a professional to make them for you, so I am going to show you how you can make them for less than 1/2 the price AND if you put the effort into the creativity of them, they can look really amazing. So, to start… here’s our wedding invitations that I designed, printed and put together myself… Continue reading “DIY Rustic Wedding Invitations”→
