A few weeks ago my local Dollar Tree put out a bunch of last year’s leftover Christmas merchandise marked at half off.  Included in the offerings were a bunch of ornament display hangers.  I thought about grabbing one but had no idea what I would do with it; now I wish I had gone with my gut and gotten one!  Leah from Mommy on the Bus used her ornament hanger to create a fabulous photo display for Halloween!  [how to make a spooky photo display]

Project estimate:

  • Christmas ornament display hanger, $1
  • Paper photo frames, $1
  • Spray paint, $1 and up
  • Images, on hand or free
  • String, on hand
  • Coffee or tea, on hand or $1 and up

Total: $3 and up

She used the same paper picture frames I bought on a recent trip to Dollar Tree, using black spray paint to give them an entirely different look.  She filled the frames with spooky images that she printed using her computer from a blog called The Graphics Fairy, which she then gave an aged effect using coffee.  You can also use pictures from greeting cards, coloring books, or of course actual photos.  For a more whimsical look, you could add buttons, ribbon, and other embellishment to the frames as well!
