Boo googly eye Halloween frame

Monday's post featured "googly eye" projects. I'm quite taken with the picture frame I featured and decided to make my own.


I got an unfinished wood frame by Plaid from Wal-mart. I had some eyes from the Dollar Tree left over from another project and some assorted sizes from Michaels. I first painted my frame black. (I only painted the outside of the stand and backing, the photo will  hide the inside.) I then randomly placed eyes until I had covered the frame. I used good ole Elmer's glue to glue them on because I didn't feel like burning myself with hot glue.


I decided I needed to add a little something so I pulled some chipboard pieces from my scrapbooking stash. I found some letters to spell boo, painted them green, and filled in the "o"s with eyes.


I can't wait to get a picture in the frame and work this into my Halloween decor.
