Project Instructions

Turn your foyer walls into a ghostly gallery that is sure to make passersby take a second look!

Swap out family portraits in your front hall for pictures of creepy old Victorian era people. It is so easy to download them and print them onto matte photo paper.

Then, use tea water to age the photos and a marker to black out their eyes. The gallery should initially blend into your décor, only to surprise guests upon second look!

Next attach the stickers of spooky eyes to various-sized mirrors.

Mount the frames and mirrors on the walls using damage-free Command™ Picture Hanging Strips to create a “killer” entrance sure to spook guests but not your walls. Be sure to follow the instructions and make note of frame size, weight and Picture Hanging Strips position on frames and mirrors.

Taking down your frames will be no trick at all if you utilize Command™ picture hanging products, which enable you to easily move and replace photo frames without damaging your walls.


Adult supervision is required at all times.
