Here's what it looked like before I got my hands on it. I bought it at a thrift store for $1.50.
The corkboard cost .50. I cut it to the shape of the calendar slot, sprayed on some adhesive spray, and then wrapped the fabric over it.
The paint color is Bahama Sea. After spray painting it I distressed it a bit to let some of the red through. I covered the calendar slot, when I was painting, to keep it clean in case I want to put a picture in it sometime instead of the cork board (which is snug enough it didn't need to be glued in).
I already had the paint, ribbon, rick-rack, and the flower from other projects, so I consider them free!
The fabric was from a fat quarter from JoAnn Fabrics. It cost under $2.
You can find this vintage Halloween picture here, as well as a few others. I added the black border and text and then printed it on photo paper. The font is called Bosshole.
I think my favorite part of crafting is when the ideas just seem to fall into place and I'm able to use items that I already have, to make something fun and new. If I only add up the cost of the materials that I used, then it ended up costing me around $5 to make!
Funny, that's how it looked when I started! : )
