Back in the summer I pulled this calendar frame from the unsold pile at our block/family garage sale.
My first thought was it screamed WREATH! and that was my plan, until hubz joined an online Halloween group and I saw someone post a double frame ( on a hinge) with fabric looking for ideas for it, she mentioned she was thinking a ghost in a window maybe.
As soon as I read her thoughts for her frame I knew mine would not be a wreath.
The frame is one of those old school calendar frames
I removed the chipboard backing and reinforced the corners at the top with metal brackets
The bottom corners are reinforced by screwing the plywood ghost down ( I used 3 on each side and 4 along the bottom)
The curtain I sewed a top and bottom hem then used hanging wire wrapped around screws at the top and bottom as “rods”
We will be using it outdoors, I used outdoor paints and a paint marker for the face then the face was coated with matte clear spray coat.
Shout out to my hubz who free hand drew the ghost onto cardboard for me to use as a template on the plywood, my drawing skills suck lol and it’s much too big to print one off.
This frame luckily is real wood so it is perfect for outside, if you find one made of MDF board this craft will still work, you just have to use it indoors or on a covered porch.
