October is here! Give me all the Halloween and (not so scary) ideas! This DIY falls right into that category!

This video shows the project start to finish. Make one or a whole gallery wall, either way everyone will get a laugh when they see it!

Spooky, but not TOO spooky right? And it really is fun to display this month, here’s what you’ll need to make it..

A frame, any size that fits the photo you’ll be using

A family photo, I printed one out in black and white because I thought it looked more Halloween”y”

And a set of battery lights, the orange ones look really cool, but the white ones will work just as well!

With a toothpick, carefully “poke” everyone’s eyes out 😂

Place the photo back in the frame and tape in place, I wasn’t able to put the backing on due to the lights, but nobody will see the back and the photo will be propped up in place.

Carefully poke the lights into the holes, not all the way through, but just enough to stay in place
