The Dollar Diva

Glittery skelly Halloween Queens

The glittered skeletons came from Dollar Tree.  They had white also, but the white wasn’t very sparkly, looked more like a ‘flocked’ skeleton; so I just got black and silver.

Gave them some pretty skirts.  The silver skirt is wire edged ribbon that I just ran a thread through and gathered.  Black skirt is strips of ribbon tied onto another strip; like you’d make a tutu.

Silver glittered crown and heart were just cut out of cardboard and glittered.  Crown is glued in place with hot glue.  Heart and key are tied on with black string.

The spider web hat came from a package of assorted spiders from DT, hot glued on.  The little keys are some I’ve had for years.

Aren’t they sweet???

Lenticular photos from Dollar Tree

These things are WAY cool!  I’ve seen similar versions in other stores craft departments for 10x the cost.

They come in these cheap-o molded plastic frames.  What do you expect for a buck, eh?  But even the pricier ones at ‘other stores’ have the same cheapo frames.  I’ve even seen some of the EXACT SAME Halloween stuff at Dollar Tree as the regular stores have!  It’s just different packaging sometimes, and usually MORE quantity in the DT ones!

I just cut away the frame with my regular scissors, and put the pictures in a regular frame (from DT, of course!)

Here’s what the photo looks like from another angle!  Pretty cool, eh?

Here’s the same picture, side by side.

 On these last two, I used some unfinished WOOD picture frames from DT.  Painted them with a black ‘wash’ (thinned down black paint) and then sanded a little to distress.  The nicer frames make ALL the difference.
