It was so easy to make and cost all of about $5. You will need a 22 x 48 piece of foam core and 2 felt spider webs from Dollar Tree. We free handed the frame design with a pencil - Leigh designed it for me since I couldn't seem to come up with anything - and then cut it out with our hot knife from Michaels. We used a bowl to make the round shapes in the corners for the spider webs.
After we cut out the frame, we painted it with gray craft paint and highlighted it with black and lighter grey. I used a small foam roller to paint the base coat and then just used the tip of the roller to slap on the highlights.
Here's a shot of the spider webs before we glued them to the frame -
Then just hot glue a web in each corner and trim the edges even with the frame. After the paint dried, the frame warped slightly so we used two wood dowels taped to the back of the frame with packing tape to keep it flat. That's all there is to it. It took us all of about 45 minutes to design, cut, paint and decorate our frame and everyone loved it!
Including the Zombie Star Wars Crew -
And our Knight in Shining Armour and his crew!
Our photo booth has quickly become a Halloween Holiday tradition. Everyone loves to strike a pose and our Spider Web frame was the perfect prop for this year's party.
Wishing everyone a Happy Haunted Halloween!
