I have not been feeling very crafty this week and I wasn’t sure what I would show for $3 Thursday and then I saw this post and knew I had to make one.
I don’t know how I missed these Halloween Rub-on’s at Target. I seem to be shopping there all the time and usually check out the dollar section. I guess I have skipped by it a few too many times and didn’t see these get put out.
I set up a small display of fall and Halloween items to display this frame. I still have not decorated with all my fall items but I think they will be up soon.
I had everything but the Rub-On’s that I bought at Target for $1 so this project was definitely a $3 project. I buy frames to revamp and probably paid $.50 or $1 for this one. I had the paper, ribbon and paint so this was a quick and easy project.
I spray painted the frame with white and silver paint. I used white as a base coat and then sprayed splotches of silver around it. I sanded the frame a bit to give it a more worn look and love the combination of the silver splotches and the sanded edges.
Frame – on hand, probably $.50 at garage sales
Rub-On’s – Target $1
Ribbon – on hand, $.99 spool and I used less than 1/2 of it.
Silver cardstock – on hand, (thank you Gail!)
White and Silver paint – on hand
Time – less than an hour plus drying time for paint.
