Spooky Friends! Fun Halloween Decor your Kids will Love

I have a fun craft to share with you.  It's from a few years ago but its a lot of fun.  Your kids will LOVE it! I'm going to show you how to made some spooky friends.  Well they don't look like much here but keep scrolling down to see how fun these little friends can be.
Find a big frame with glass.  Mine is 20x16.  You can always make this on a much smaller scale.  Just add one monster or two.

Paint your frame

While that's drying grab the cardboard from the back of the frame
 cut your paper to fit the size of your board.  I did 2 pieces 12x7 to go across the bottom (this is where your characters will go) and and then used scraps to fit the remaining top 4 inches.
 Glue into place.  I also sanded my paper a bit to give it a distressed look.
 Cut out the basic shape of the face.  Do this for your Frankenstein, Witch, and ghost.
 Glue them onto your paper.
 Cut out your title and glue it on

 Add the glass and cardboard to your frame and your finished.

 Well first you need to draw some cute faces and the best part is you can erase them and draw new ones over and over again.
 Even your little ones can join in on the fun.

Make sure you use dry erase markers and it easily wipes off.  You can also draw on the glass of framed family pictures to make them a little spooky as well.  Or if you don't really want to bring out the markers you can finish the faces with paper before you frame it.  It would be really cute as well.
