Make this spiderweb frame to hang photographs of the kids wearing their Halloween costumes that you’ve taken over the years.

Every Halloween we help our kids’ choose costumes to wear to Halloween parties and trick-or-treating. We take adorable photos of them, share them on social media, and then, they are saved on our devices and not looked at again.

Why not put them on display every Halloween. Everyone will love looking back at all the costumes from past years, especially from when the kids were really little.

This frame is simple and inexpensive to make, takes very little time and is perfect for hanging on the wall, or putting on the mantel. You could even make one for each child.

 

Note: This project was originally created for Hewlett Packard’s MyPrintly website, however that site is no longer live, you can still find some of the videos on the Hewlett Packard YouTube channel.

Once I finally track down all of the photos back from when the twins’ were babies and toddlers, then I’ll probably make a second frame … one for each of them.

The first thing you need to do is head to a thrift store first to pick up a cheap frame that’s missing it’s glass. I loved this one because it was a little weathered and worn making it perfect for Halloween.

Supplies:

  • Smartphone
  • HP Sprocket Plus Photo Printer
  • HP Sprocket Plus Sticky-backed Photo Paper
  • Frame (we found one at an antique store)
  • Hemp cord
  • Pegs
  • Staple gun
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  • Begin by opening up the Sprocket App on your smartphone.
  • Upload one of your favorit costume photos into the app.
  • Add a sticker and text in the app to include the year the photo was taken.

Print your photo.

  • Now it’s time to make the frame.
  • Using a staple gun attach the hemp cord to the frame in vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines.
  • Tie a knot in the center, and then gradually wind the hemp cord around in a spiral to make the web.
  • Use pegs to attach your printed photos to the web.
