I love decorating for the seasons and holidays, but I don’t like to spend a lot of money on it. I’m all about living on a budget. My new Halloween picture frame cost me $3- the canvas was $2 from the thrift store and the fat quarter of Halloween fabric was about a $1. I’ve had this canvas for awhile now in my thrift store pile, but every time I’ve went to use it, the project just never worked out. Finally my DIY craft project worked out.

Materials for DIY Halloween Craft12×12 Canvas Halloween Fat Quarter of Material Staple Gun Orange Twine Mini Natural Clothespins Halloween Washi Tape- Polka Dot Washi Tape
Let’s Learn How to Make a Halloween Picture FrameTo get started, iron your material. It’s okay if you don’t get all the seams out because once you pull the fabric tight over the canvas, you won’t see the seams. How cute are these jack o’lantern pumpkins? Place your fabric over the canvas, make sure it looks good and flip it over. Wrap the canvas like a present and using a staple gun, staple the fabric to the canvas. Just think of it as wrapping a present. Remember to pull the fabric tightly. I chose an orange twine from my craft stash and placed it where I wanted it and stapled the orange twine to the back of the frame. The twine fits perfectly with the halloween themed fabric. To add more Halloween to the frame, I used some more supplies from my craft stash. I had small medium clothes pins leftover from my Whimsical Embroidery Hoop Display and Halloween Washi tape from my Halloween Washi Tape Picture Frame. I just placed the Washi tape on top of the clothespins and cut off the extra. Super easy and fast. Find some Halloween pictures to add with the clothespins and your Halloween picture frame is ready to hang on the wall or to put on display. The best thing about this decoration idea is that it can be a wall hanging or it can sit on a display.
This canvas craft is Halloween themed, but just think of all the ways you can use this idea. You could make it for other holidays, seasons or as home decor.
And now for more thrifty goodness!
