Haunted Mansion Inspired Halloween Frames

– Posted in: Crafts, Holiday Ideas

I am part of the Make It Fun Team® with FloraCraft® and am super excited they helped make this post possible today. 

This past week it was the awesome people at FloraCraft® who did the job of making my toddler hysterically silly.  When I received this months box for my craft challenge, I wasn’t really sure what to expect.  I let my daughter open the box, and she produced a scary-ish foam head and started chasing people around the house with it. I hope these Haunted Mansion Inspired Halloween Frames induce the same amount of hysterical pleasure that the foam head did the day she opened the box.

We were sent several heads, and I was so excited at what would happen next. (Btw, it was the female heads that had my daughter going hysterically crazy.) We love Halloween, and we love the Haunted Mansion, so this fun craft was a no brainer for me.

Have you ever been to the Haunted Mansion?  We love to go to Disney, and the Haunted Mansion is one of our favorite places to go. It’s such a spooktacular experience, and just before you walk into the doors…the eyes on the faces open up! I am hoping to re-create that just a little (minus the eyeballs opening, of course! )

Don’t these just look a little spooky-ish? I thought they would be perfect for a little ghoulish decor.

Here is what you will need:

Haunted Mansion Inspired Halloween Frames

  • FloraCraft® foam heads
  • FloraCraft® StyroCutter Plus®
  • FloraCraft® Spray Glitter ( I used Silver Glitter)
  • 2 9 x 12 Picture Frames
  • 2 sets of Command Strips
  • black spray paint
  • E6000 glue

The first thing you need is to grab you male and female heads.  Take your FloraCraft® StyroCutter® and cut them in half.

Once the heads were carefully cut in half, I took them outside and painted them with the FloraCraft® SprayGlitter.  I made sure to use a well ventilated area and spray 15-18″ away from the heads.  During broad daylight you can’t tell much of a difference, but I am hoping on Halloween and little fog, a spooky flashing white light and some scary music will have these all aglow!

I then removed the glass from the frames and spray painted the cardboard backing black. I won’t be adding the glass back into the frames, (so I will have to save those pieces later for a different craft).

Once the heads and the frame backs were dry, I put the frame back together, minus the glass.

I then took the E600 and glued the painted heads to the frames, and hung them up.

I can’t wait to start decorating outdoors soon and put the Haunted Mansion Inspired Halloween Frames up for Trick or Treat.

I really loved how these turned out, but do you think the little kids will actually knock on the door?
