I purchased this frame from Salvation Army for $3. It was a brassy gold. But I knew that with a little black spray paint, this baby would be PERFECT! What is great about this frame is that the 'photo' sits far back in the frame while the glass is pressed against the front. Similar to a shadowbox. I knew that this configuration would allow me to use buttons and STILL have the glass in the frame.
After laying out my buttons on my card stock for a 'dry run', I glued them into place. Of course, I used an "H" for "Halloween", but you could use any letter or even spell out a word (...wouldn't "Boo" be perfect?).
I added the black shadow around the card stock with my Tim Holtz Distressing Tool and some black ink. I also stamped the bats and spider from MCT's Treats For My Sweet.
This colorful frame looks great on our foyer table along with some other Halloween decorations!
