DIY Halloween Chalkboard Frames
Hi everyone, how are you?! It’s Andrea from The Cottage Market and I am so happy to be with you today! The Summer is winding down and dare I say…Halloween is right around the corner!!! So I thought an early Halloween DIY Craft Project would be fun right about now! I know how much you like the easy DIY’s so that is what this one is! Get out your Halloween Photos of your kids…Grandchildren…maybe even yourself and get ready to feature them in a DIY Haunting Halloween Chalkboard Frame! I am going to fill you in on what you will need.
Supplies for the Halloween Frames
You will need your Vintage prints…I made a larger frame and 2 smaller ones…you can size them to whatever size you would like.
- Spooky Digital Frame Graphics HERE
- Bat Silhouette Image HERE – sized to 1 1/2″ or larger
- Wooden Blocks
- a Paintbrush
- Chalkboard Paint
- Glue of your choice
- Xacto Knife
Cut out each of the square frame images, one for each of the frames you would like to make …
Take your Xacto Blade and cut out the center of the frame, so that you have an oval opening…
Cut out each of the bat images that you need for your frames…
Here’s a quick and easy tip! In order to make the bats dimensional…just fold up the sides of the wings and then glue it on a flat bat…that’s it!…
Use your paint and paint your blocks on all of the sides…
Next, take your photo and glue it centered…then brush glue on the edges of the frame and apply…now add one of the little bats!
The larger framed piece I chose to place the frame over the chalkboard paint so we could write a little message or draw a doodles…whatever you would like…it makes a fun little chalkboard and if you have little ones…you probably should make more than one! Once again…just glue the cut out frame onto the block…add some bats and viola…ready to go!
I sure hope you have fun with this little Halloween Craft Project! They are really a lot of fun and they are something that you can take out year after year after year! I chose to make my kids picture in black and white to fit the mood…but whatever you choose it will look adorable! Oh and if you want to do a totally different grouping…you can frame different monsters…or whatever your heart desires!
Finished Halloween Craft Project
Have fun with them and enjoy…see you SOON! If you want to say hello before we meet again…just hop on over to The Cottage Market…it’s where I hang out! Hugs!

Sorry I don’t already know how to do this but, how do you resize to any size you want? Love your ideas.
These frames are a great idea! I love the chunky shape of them, and the bats are a perfect touch. Thanks for sharing this fun/frightful chalkboard frame.
