Let's Get Started! 

step one

Choose A Picture

Choose a picture you want to make creepy. We went with a vintage picture we found using Google. Of course you can use your own image of family, friends, or anything you want!

step two

Cut the Picture Out

Simply cut the picture out to fit your picture frame. You'll also want to tape or glue the picture to a piece of card stock the same size as your picture, for extra support.

step three

Darken the Image

We used a combination of left over coffee grinds, water, and ink to age our picture. Lightly brushed it across the picture. Be careful not to saturate the picture too much. This enhanced the vintage look of the image.

step four

Cut the Eyes Out

Simply cut the eyes out of the person (or persons) in the picture you want to be lit up. Ideally, you want the holes to be about 1/4 of an inch.

step five

Light It Up!

Crack the glow sticks and use them to cover the holes. Tape them down and then put the image into the picture frame. From here, just enjoy creeping out your friends and family!
