Want to make your own?
All you need are some basic crafty supplies that you probably already have laying around.
I found two gold frames at Savers thrift store back in March of this year and I grabbed them with this very project in mind! Once October arrived, I knew it was time to put them to use.
I sponge-painted the frames with black craft paint, allowing some of the gold to still show through.
I then printed out this skeleton head:
and cut out the skull, jaw, eyes and nose with an exacto knife.
I then taped it onto some burlap and sponge-painted the areas I wanted to be black.
Once the paint was dry, I cut a large oval around the painted image and hot glued the burlap directly onto the back of the frame.
(Does anyone else hate working with burlap? Yuck, so itchy and messy! Why do projects with burlap have to turn out to be so cute?)
Once the burlap was secured to the back of frame, I tied 2 bows out of orange and white polka-dot grosgrain ribbon.
I then hot glued the bows to the burlap.
A dapper bow-tie for the gentleman:
And a lovely hair bow for the lady:
You should definitely add some Skeleton Portraits to your Halloween decor this year!
