Insects in black frames send a menacing message yet are graphically refined enough to grace a wall after the party's over.

Here's how: Download clip art (see slide 8 for resources) for the background (we looked for old postcards and medicine labels). Resize image to fit the frame, and print onto card stock. Download clip art of bugs. Resize as desired and print onto vellum sheets. Place the vellum sheets over the printed background and into black frames.

Assorted black frames, Michaels stores; inkjet-compatible vellum paper,, $13.
