Free and Easy Halloween Chalkboard Printables For Framing

October 19, 2014

Blogland is full of chalkboard art printables
for every occasion and thensome.
Sometimes it's hard for me to pick my favorites.
But this Halloween I picked two and ran with it
since I had a thrift store frame
I was just itching to fill.

Here's the frame "before."
You can see I had just started applying
painter's tape to the glass.
It had been sitting in the garage
for at least a year so I figured
it was time to bite the bullet
and begin the transformation.

And here it is "after."

Isn't she pretty?

I really wanted to fill it with photos, but for
something so big (it holds two  8 x 10 pics) I wanted to make
sure they were really good pics.  For now, I decided
to fill it with seasonal graphics. And what better graphics
to display this month than some Halloween printables?

My friend, Carol, over at The Answer is Chocolate, makes
awesome printables (among other things). This one
really cracked me up. Anyone remember
The (original) Wizard of Oz?
I do, and I also remember that I loved it as a kid.
So this Halloween printable really spoke to me.
Another fabulous printable I stumbled upon
reflects more of a ghoulish character. 

I got it from The 36th Avenue. Don't you just love it?
I think the "Midnight Witches Soiree"
sounds grand, don't you think?
My family and I will be attending
our own "Halloween Soiree"
next weekend. I can't wait!
Are you going to any Halloween parties
or do you prefer to hang out at home
and hand out candy to the kiddos? 
These graphics really make for some awesome
Halloween art, don't you think? 

I added the pumpkin for a pop of color into this mainly black and white vignette.
The trophy/loving cup was a recent estate sale find and I knew
as soon as I bought it that I wanted to put a pumpkin in it.  
I simply added an ironstone pitcher filled with some
ghoulish Dollar Store black flowers
(that come with their own built-in spiders, thank you)
and a raven statue that I love to take out and
display this time of year.

Next up: Thanksgiving wall art printables!

I might even design my own this time.

So stay tuned!

Not only do I absolutely love your frame transformation, I am so honored that you used one of my printables ! Truly, day made. As always, gorgeous!!

Free projects are my absolute favorite!! I love how you took things you had lying around and put them to use!!

I laughed out loud at the flying monkeys one - too funny! My high school history teacher always used to call me "Dorothy" because he thought I looked like her in the Wizard of Oz. Maybe in my younger days, haha!

This is such a fun idea! I love the graphics you found especially the flying monkeys...oh yes, I remember them well. Thanks Kathleen for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

I love how you used this frame, Kathleen! I normally wouldn't look at one like this if I came across it at the thrift store. I'm usually just looking for those single picture frames, but this would be a great frame to have for some fun at the holidays changing out printables.
