How to Make It

  1. Take photos of your subject looking in different directions (up, down, sideways). (The background doesn't matter because it will be cut out.)
  2. Use image-editing software to convert the photos to black-and-white. (Or make black-and-white copies of the photos on a copy machine.)
  3. Resize your favorite images as necessary so the subjects' heads will fit nicely into the frames.
  4. Print onto white cardstock and cut out the backgrounds from the photos.
  5. Cut a piece of patterned Halloween paper to fit inside the photo frames.
  6. Adhere the cutout photos to the underside of the frames (and in front of the patterned paper) with adhesive foam dots so the subjects are looking through the frames.
  7. Hot-glue a spider, faux spider webbing, or other spooky embellishments in a position so it looks as if the subjects are looking at them.
