Recently I’ve been introduced to some very talented ladies. The best part is they love to craft and party on a budget, so I was excited when Maria from Love & Sugar Kisses agreed to come hang out here today and share one of her Halloween projects. Introducing Maria…
Hi! I’m Maria from Love & Sugar Kisses and I am so thrilled to be guest posting here at Giggles Galore! Over at my place, I like to share my love of cake decorating, parties, and making crafts and I like to do it all on a budget!
Today I’m going to share a cute idea to make some very inexpensive Halloween art using a gift bag!I love gift bags and sometimes they are so pretty, I just wish I could keep them around. That’s when I got the idea to frame one and use it as art!
For this project you will need:
1 gift bag (I used a medium sized one)
1 wooden frame (I used an 8×10)
spray paint (I used Krylon Glitter Blast)
paint sealer (optional)
1 piece of scrapbook paper
First, you will need to spray paint your frame in your chosen color. I have been dying to use the new Krylon Glitter Blast Spray so I bought some in Starry Night, which is a black color. The back of the can states that you get the best results by choosing a color similar to the object you are painting. This worked perfectly with my already-black-frame!
I also used the Krylon Glitter Blast Clear Sealer to seal in all the fabulous glitteryness 😉 Here is a close up so you can see how beautifully that glitter spray works!
While that was drying (which is surprisingly quick with that spray), I trimmed off one of the sides of my gift bag. I found this cute one for 97 cents!
The gift bag had some little candy corn printed on the sides, so I cut out a few individual ones and attached them with some glue dots.
Then I trimmed my scrapbook paper to the same size as my frame back. I used spray adhesive to attach them together. Then used the same adhesive to attach my bag piece to the scrapbook paper.
Finally, I put my frame back together and now it is a cute piece of Halloween art! Perfect for hanging on the wall or it would also look cute on a Halloween party treat table!
