Halloween Wall Art + Free Printable

Halloween Decorating is in full force around here, and the orange & black boxes have been dragged out.

I like to add a few new elements each year, and wall art is an easy way to add an injection of fun.  I, like most crafters, have about a gazillion empty frames laying around.  I grabbed a few and spray painted them black.

Printed off some fun skeletal graphics, and used a staple gun to attach the frames to each other with some webbed strapping material, also sprayed black.

I have tons of this strapping.  I've gone on record as a fabric hoarder, so anytime anyone is cleaning out a fabric stash, I end up with a bag of fabric & other odds & ends.

And here they are in my foyer.  The top pair of skeletons is from the always fantastic, Graphics Fairy, the bottom skull diagram is from an Operational Medicine textbook.

I also made a more light hearted sign to hang over my witches whisk broom seen here.  This piece is hung below eye level for the kids to see.  We'll be having another Halloween party this year, and I like there to be new elements for them, too.

And here's the graphic, for you to print off.  Just right click on it, then print from your browser.
And the skull one, too.

Thanks for popping in and checking out my new Halloween Wall Art.

  1. Very cute and very unique! I love how you made everything and the way you displayed them. I'd say you're smart to hoard the fabric stuff--it comes in handy for projects. :)

    Have a great day.

  2. These printable are so cute and you are so sweet to share them!

    I appreciate you linking to Potpourri Friday! You are such a big help in making it a success!

  3. Yea! A fellow fabric hoarder! Love the framed Halloween projects, I bet it is a hit with the kids!!


  4. Too funny, I have the skeletons looks like I need to down load the skull too...Looks so festive!

  5. Cute. I have a witch drawing I did from when I was 5yo framed in one of the wavy edge frames. I need to find it!
