Halloween Day 4 - Spooky Plates

Well, we are on Day 4 of our little Halloweeny projects party here!!  I hope everyone is enjoying all the projects so far!  I've enjoyed making most of them!

Today's project is super simple and super CHEAP! :)

I bought 3 plain white plates from the Dollar Tree.  I found Halloween sillouhettes from Googling "Free Halloween Clip Art".  When I found the ones I liked, I blew them up to the sizes I needed and then printed them (at work...shhhh) on a laser printer.

Then I simply cut the sillouhettes out with scissors and used an Xacto knife in any of the small detailed parts and Modge Podged them onto the plates. 

Then I put some ribbon behind them that I also got at the Dollar Tree and hung them on hooks where my Kirkland plates normally hang in my living room.

Sorry for the bad/blurry pictures!  Who knew taking pictures of white plates would prove to be so difficutl!  And just when I thought I was improving. LOL

And that's it my friends!  I told you it was super easy and for a total of $4 I think it qualifies as super cheap too. :)

Oh, and Eighteen25 is having a special Halloween and Fall Link Party!!

So, of course I'm joining in today...just thought I'd share!

Until tomorrow...
