Dollar Store Halloween Art

Hey Y’all.  Today I am sharing a Halloween idea that is so easy to make and so affordable.  This past weekend I made the cutest Dollar Store Halloween Art!  We are also joining forces with some amazing blogs as part of the Delightfully Wicked Halloween Hop to share even more wickedly fabulous ideas!

This fun Halloween silhouette art was made from items found from Dollar Tree and the Dollar Spot at Target.  I picked up a few of these adorable silhouette placemats from Target.  I just knew I could make something cute with them for my neighbor’s Halloween birthday party.  I just needed to find an inexpensive canvas.

I decided that a piece of foam core board would work really nice and be very lightweight.  I headed to the Dollar Tree and picked up a few pieces. While I was there, I found some electrical tape that I would frame the art with.  Gotta love the Dollar Tree!

 Step One.  Lay your silhouette placemat on your piece of foam core board to see where you want it to be.  Use a hot glue gun to glue it into place.

Step Two.  If your board is too big, trim off the excess with a knife.  I decided to take a little off the bottom.

Step Three.  Use the electrical tape to create a “frame”.  Run a piece of tape down each side and secure it to the back.  All done and in no time flat!

Didn’t it make the perfect back drop for our party table?  I am thinking of hanging them on our front porch for Halloween night.  Let’s continue on with the fun…
