Halloween Costume Photo Decoration

20131002-165257.jpgA quick little post with a Halloween decorating idea. I bought one of those “school days” picture frames at the Christmas Tree Shop (which is a New England favorite for picking up inexpensive housewares). These are the frames that you would usually keep your child’s school pictures in year after year until they graduate from High School. I got one for each of my kids to put their Halloween costume photos in.

In the large photo opening, I made a little Halloween paper decoration, but you could easily find a greeting card that you like and put the cover of it in this spot if you don’t feel like making your own.

We hang them up for the month of October when I put up the other Halloween decorations and every year the kids love to look at their old costumes and remember Halloweens past.

20131002-163044.jpgAs a tip, I recommend that you add the new photo each year before you put the frame back in storage. I’ve forgotten before and have found myself rummaging through my computer trying to find two decent photos from the previous Halloween. I seem to recall saying lots of swear words that day.

My plan is to hang these up every Halloween forever and ever.

  1. Totally LOVE THIS IDEA! I am going to do this too! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Love this!! I did similar with a HUGE frame, wrapping paper background and made a (incomplete) Santa Pictures frame for each of the three kids.
