How To Make Your Halloween Frame Craft
Please get your illustrated, step-by-step instructions at: http:

readingroom.janktheproofer.com/HalloweenFrameCraft.htm.

Step 1.

Assemble items needed to make the craft. You can include Halloween
stickers, glitter, or any other craft type item you have.

The two frames shown in the illustrations are just two of the many frames
available at Mom's Break Halloween. To download your free printable
Halloween frames (along with other Halloween printables), go to: http:
//halloween.momsbreak.com.

Step 2.

Following the instructions printed on the Halloween frames, and using the
dotted lines, cut off the surrounding edge of the frame, and then cut out
the inside of the frame.

Step 3.

Using the frame as a guidelines, mark the cardboard and cut it to be the
same size as the frame.

Step 4.

The cardboard is trimmed so that the frame fits over it, with no cardboard
showing along the outer edges of the frame.

Step 5.

Using the same instruction as Step 4, cut the colored paper to fit.

Step 6.

Glue the colored paper to the cardboard, and then glue the frame to
the colored paper.

Step 7.

The inside of the frame can now be decorated! It can be a scary
Halloween picture drawn by your child, or it can be an "I Love You,
Grandma" picture for Grandma to hang up on her refrigerator! You can
also cut out other Mom's Break Halloween pictures, and glue them to the
coloured paper. Paste stickers, glue glitter---go wild!!!

Step 8.

You can also use the Halloween Frame to make a door hanger for Trick-or-
Treat night! Let Trick-or-Treaters know that they are welcome at your house!

There are many other ways you can use Halloween Frames! Each frame is
approximately the right size frame for a 5 x 7 photo. Take a picture of your
favorite little Trick-or-Treater and frame it! Instead of gluing colored paper
to the cardboard, trim the photo following Step 5, and then complete
Step 6. This makes a great keepsake or gift to send to grandparents who
live far away.  Halloween can be fun---and it isn't just for kids!
