0.diywebbyframeowlpicture_introphotoSaturday I made some DIY Spooky Pictures for the wall, today I want to finish up my mantelpiece decorations with a Owl Picture in the center with its own DIY Spiderwebby Frame. Use some glow-in-the-dark decoupage to add a spooky glowing touch! Here’s how:

You Need:

diywebbyframeowlpicture_materialsowl paper cut-out (I used Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Paper Cut-Outs)  /  black craft foam  /  white cardboard  /  scissors  /  decoupage medium (I used Martha Stewart Decoupage Glow-in-the-Dark Finish)  /  paintbrush  /  something to protect your work surface  /  pen  /  plastic baggie  /  silver paint (I used Martha Stewart Crafts paint in Pure Platinum)  /  glue gun & gluesticks  /  box cutter (optional)

How To:

diywebbyframeowlpicture_step1 1. Place the own cut-out on top of the black foam and trace around it to make an oval frame-shape.

2. Cut out.

3. Place the owl on the frame again and sketch a smaller oval around the owl.

4. Cut out, using a box cutter as necessary.

6. Follow up with 3 coats of decoupage, drying in between each coat.

diywebbyframeowlpicture_step37. Lay the black frame on some newspapers.

8. Pour some paint into a plastic baggie, and snip off one corner.

9. Squeeze paint onto the black frame in a scribbly, spiderwebby fashion.  Allow to dry.
