Easy Halloween Decoration

Remember this little beauty that I made over a year ago?  I decided to make something similar for Halloween with some black frames just like them. 
I enlisted my resident artist.  Greg is really creative and gets pretty excited about things like this. 

So do I.  Glitter is a mess but who doesn't love all that sparkle?

I purchased small chipboard letters (.77 cents each) and let him brush the letters with Elmer's glue.  Then he sprinkled away.

We cut out spooky spiderweb paper down to the size of each frame backing and glued them on.  When the letters were dry, I hot glued them onto the center of each frame.  I did get rid of the glass for these since the letters stick out a bit.
Our finished product!  
A Halloween BOO! Done for under $5 WITH a five year old!

I think I may have to copy. Don't they say that imitation is the the best compliment? :)

So for us of those who are craft-challenged, where did you get all the stuff to make it? Details darling. :)

Hi Kristen!!!! LOVE Those. in fact I am off to buy some supplies right now. Already have the black frames and the little hands to help! Thanks for sharing!!!

Not only did you make a ca-ute craft, but you also proved to us that you're a better mom than the rest of us. There's no way I would have let my 5-year old use the glitter. Again...it's just because I'm not as good of a mom. :)
