Garage Sale Find to a Fun Spooky Halloween Frame!

Hi Blogging Friends!!!
I am a Pals Guest Stamper on Mary Fish's blog today! OMG so excited! Thank you Mary! its great being a Pals Gal!!!
If you are coming over from Mary's blog I want to Thank You for jumping over to check out my Halloween project. This was a fun decoration to make, as soon as I seen this frame in a $1 box at a garage sale I knew that it was going to be something Halloween.
I love spray painting things! I painted the twigs and the frame gloss black. I painted the mat inside the frame orange then I used crystal effects to glue the orange glitter down.
When I made the rosette I stretched it out into an oval, it was not hard to do. I used the oval Framelits to cut out the skull out of the "Witches Brew" DSP.

I used black Stampin glitter around the oval rosette. I wish it showed better in the photo. The 31st is heat embossed in black. The witch hat stamp is from the stamp set "Best of Halloween". I stamped it twice and used dimensionals to give it a 3D effect. I used a silver pen on the buckle of the hat, and rhinestones in the eyes! Spooooky! lol
I heat embossed all the skeleton heads in black and cut them out and used hemp thread to tie them on with a little bow.
After I took all my pictures I added the Oct, not sure how I like it best. The Oct is from the Rotary stamp "Remember" on page 130 of the Stampin Up Catalog.
Here are more frames that I found at a junk store for $2.00. I plan on altering these too. If you look at the mat area they have the same kind of red velvet that mine had. I had to scrap and scrub that off to be able to spray paint it orange. What's cool about this set is that they still have the glass.

Close up of left side of the Hutch. I made those Pumpkins and that ghost.

Close up of the right side. I love to use feather Boa's in my decorating for Holidays, I used a black one around the Hutch and below I used a red one and wrapped around some tall candle sticks.

This is a small area in my Living room. Yes! on the floor those are Halloween nutcrackers!!! A vampire, witch and I have a Frankenstein too.
