Scary Photo Holders

Here are some ways to increase the SCARE factor of your Halloween displays....



Altered some of your instant ancestors to make them witches and warlocks...I used the original photos...

You could use copies...

AND use your vintage game letters to spell out BOO or other Halloween words and stick them in your flower frogs..



Wrap some bottles {old or new} in the black and white pages from old books, add some Scary graphics...

Then turn them into photo holders, of course.

  11. Cute ideas, especially the bottles. My ancestors already look scary enough--everybody looked mean and unhappy back then :)
