My nephew is celebrating his very first Halloween this year!  I made this picture frame last year for another relative and thought it would be a great way to show off his first trick-or-treating experience!

More detailed instructions are here:

Here's how to make it:

Required Supplies:
Wood Paint (Black, Green)
Paint Brush
Craft Glue
2 1/8" Diameter Google Eyes
1 Rectangle Wood Frame
2 Gingerbread Men Wood Shapes
1 9 x 12 White Stick-It Felt Sheet
1 9 x 12 Tangerine Stick-It Felt Sheet
1 9 x 12 Lavender Stick-It Felt Sheet
Trick or Treat Frame Template
(available here http://www.newimageco.biz/pdfs/trickortreatframetemplate.PDF)

Optional Supplies:

1) Paint your pieces:
     Picture Frame: Black
     1 Gingerbread Man: Green
     TIP: To help keep pieces secure while painting, use some tape to keep them in

2) Using theTrick or Treat Frame Template,cut out the following pieces:
     White Felt:
         Letters: "T", "C", "R", "T"
         Ghost Body
     Tangerine Felt:
         Letters: "R", "K", "O", "E"
     Lavender Felt:
         Letters: "I", "R", "T", "A"
         Witch Hat
         Witch Dress

3) Once paint has dried, layout where you would like your words and shapes to go

4) Create your trick or treaters by:
         Remove the adhesive-backing on your ghost body piece.
         Affix to front of the unpainted gingerbread man piece.
         Glue two google eyes onto the face.

         Remove the adhesive-backing from witch hat piece.
         Affix to top of green gingerbread piece.
         Remove adhesive-backing from witch dress piece.
         Affix to the body of green gingerbread piece.

5) Remove adhesive-backing from letters and affix into place onto frame.

6) Glue your characters in place.

7) Add your favorite Halloween memory.

Optional Steps:
Glue magnets to the back of your frame to create a perfect new magnet!

I may not be perfect, but I'm so close it's almost eerie.
