I've been PINspired! {Googly Eyes Halloween Frames}

Before we start, I want to remind you that my Pinterest Link-up is 15 days away from ending, so be sure you're taking your pictures and doing your blog posts!!

Now, onto my latest PINspired project.

A widely pinned project that I saw several times was THIS pin with the Googly Eye Frame.
I thought it was really cute, and seemed cheap and easy. My two favorite things when it comes to crafting!

I did two frames, and here's how they turned out:

I picked up two hideous frames during a trip to Goodwill. (They were $2 and $4.)
I added some acrylic paint (already had), some ribbon ($1), painted the wooden letters black (they were $2 for the BOO and $3 for the EEK), and added a crapton of Googly Eyes ($2.50 per frame). 
I also burnt the heck out of my finger with the hot glue gun.
Battle wounds.

Then we set out to get some pictures for the frames. I searched high and low and couldn't find the bright red lips like I wanted (I ended up getting them at the apple orchard, of all places!). So at first, we tried the ones I picked up at Target: 
We were going to make it a family affair: 

But then we found the red lips and decided to just go with cute pictures of the bird.
She has 2 halloweenish pair of PJs, so we've been having her each pair once a week. The night after we went to the pumpkin patch, we were playing in her bedroom and she happened to be wearing her skeleton ones. I ran and grabbed the camera and the red lips and we snapped away.

Is this not the cutest thing? The lips are so huge!
And then I was rocking her and snapped this hilarious picture! She was trying to keep her balance while rocking, but it was the most perfect picture for these frames!

These turned out pretty cute. I think they'll make great decorations for our pumpkin carving party next weekend, too!

I'm linking up on Eighteen 25's Halloween Link Up Party and also A Little Tipsy's DIY under $15 next week.
