Black-Eyed Children Halloween Decor

This fun project was very cheap to make and yet had a very creepy effect.  It cost about $45 for this 30 x 44 inch large mirror that looks old and worn and has semi-translucent black-eyed children peering out.

One 30 x 44 inch glass picture frame from Goodwill only 24.99
2 cans of looking glass spray paint by Krylon
1 container black acrylic paint
1 container crackle medium
1 container ivory paint
printer paper

Print life-sized photos of Victorian kids in black and white (eyes blacked out)
Cut them out, glue with mod podge glue them to glass.
Wet your fingers and rub some of the paper away from the ink along the edges to soften the "cut-out" effect.
Spray the back of the glass (back of the pictures too) with looking glass paint. Don't worry about making it too perfectly even because you can create an aged glass look out of imperfections.
Paint picture frame black. Let dry.
Paint with crackle medium. Let dry.
Top coat frame with ivory paint and it will crackle in minutes.
Put glass back into frame.

Utilizing the Black-Eyed Children theme, consider making some in your window looking out at Trick-Or-Treaters.

Print the children out above in life-sized dimensions. Cut out entire eye shape. Tape black paper behind the eyes. Attach to front window of house.  On Halloween night, place a spot light or glow sticks outside the window to show them off.

Creepy baby doll mask; just add sheer black nylon hose behind eye holes.
