  • STEP 1: Make a black-and-white copy of a portrait on printer paper and cut out.

    STEP 2: To "age" the picture, lightly brush it with a sponge dipped in a solution of a few drops of black craft paint mixed with water. Let the paper dry.

    STEP 3: Cut a piece of card stock the same size as the photo, glue to the photo's back, and let dry. With an X-Acto knife, cut out the eyes of the picture's subject(s), piercing through the card stock and creating holes about 1/4 inch in diameter.

  • STEP 4: Open the frame's back, remove the glass, then fit the photo inside.

    STEP 5: Insert red mini LED Christmas lights (try Superior Holiday Lighting's flattop version, $11.26 for a 25-foot string; 1000bulbs.com) through the back of the eyeholes. Plug in the lights, then replace the frame's backing β€” securing it with tape if necessary β€” and drape with fake cobwebs.

    Steal this idea! Add a little extra bite to your photos with fangs: Cut small triangles from white paper and glue or tape them to the subject's mouth.
