Here is what I did for the "boo" frame:
First, I drew up some some little swirly letters by hand and cut them out. If you don't feel that freehand is something you could do then you can use vinyl, scrapbook cutouts, stickers, or you could simply print off some letters from your computer and cut them out.
For this frame I wanted it to have that vintage feel, and the pages from an older book are perfect for accomplishing just that. The book I used was purchased from a thrift store many years ago and it's pages have that antique look to them. I cut out a few pages into smaller pieces; making sure that they were in random shapes and sizes.
I then trimmed of the excess edges and glued on my letters. When you glue on your letters make sure to place them far enough in so that the edges of the frame don't cut them off.
Here is what I did for the "Trick or Treat" frame:
I pretty much did the exact same thing for this frame as I did for this one, with a few minor adjustments. Again, I drew the bats by hand and used a small cup for the moon. I wanted to give some dimension to this frame, so I took a pencil and curled the wings of the bats in and distressed the edges of the moon and paper. Then, I put it all together.
I very happy with the way they turned out and really like the look they give to my shelves. In fact, I'm so happy with the way they turned out that I couldn't stop with just these frames. I ended up making a few more items to add to my shelves and can't wait to share those with you! Stay tuned for some more spooky surprises.
