Create a Monster Collage to Decorate your Home

Updated on July 31, 2013

Create a Monster Collage without Going to Monster College

What better way to decorate your home than to create and "hang" several monster collages!

You can be as creative as you like with these and pick your own monsters. I have chosen my favorite monsters, Frankenstein and Dracula as particular subjects for this website.

I discovered a free internet tool that allows you to make collages, amongst other things and you can print them out and frame them, hang them without a frame or my favorite, send them to your favorite printer to have them made into a poster. I know that Walgreens and Zazzle will print your photos into posters. You can have some of these locations print them immediately.

I have also thrown in a few fun items for you to look at and participate in while you are visiting.

Have fun and please be sure to leave your mark below!

Using a Monster Collage to Decorate Your Home for Halloween

Searching the internet for an online collage program, I found several.

Most of the sites that I located were not free and either let you make a collage with a watermark (forcing you to upgrade at a fee to remove the watermark) or they had simple templates that did not allow you to be creative.

I finally found the Kizoa.com website that allowed you to not only make an online collage for free, you can also manipulate the sizes of the photos and rotate them to any orientation. The site will orient them for you, or you can place them where you want them. The link to the website is below.

In the Frankenstein and Dracula Collages that I created below, I also used a creative background to make the collages a little more ominous. Hey, it's Halloween so I needed to add that little scare factor.

Every photo I used below came from the Creative Commons Website. I simply searched for "Frankenstein" or "Dracula" and then picked the photos that I wanted. Doing this allowed me to also pick movie titles and other Frank and Drac-related images.

The website is self-explanatory so this is not a how-to, however, if you need help, please email me. I figured out the site in a matter of minutes and think you will also.

Happy Halloween and have fun with your monster collage decor!

Frankenstein; The Original Movie Collection

Frankenstein: The Legacy Collection (Frankenstein / The Bride of Frankenstein / Son of Frankenstein / The Ghost of Frankenstein / House of Frankenstein)
Frankenstein: The Legacy Collection (Frankenstein / The Bride of Frankenstein / Son of Frankenstein / The Ghost of Frankenstein / House of Frankenstein)

This is the complete Frankenstein movie collection and includes five different Frankenstein films.

The original is the classic and the saying, "It's Alive" will stick in my memory forever. This collection also has the Bride of Frankenstein and another image you cannot forget is Elsa Lanchester, with her Hostess cake hairdo.

Buy this collection and play it at Halloween. It will take all day but you can't miss it. Culminate the showing with the original Frank, starring Boris Karloff.

Dracula on Film; The Complete Collection - How did he show up on film anyway?

Dracula - The Legacy Collection (Dracula / Dracula (1931 Spanish Version) / Dracula's Daughter / Son of Dracula / House of Dracula)
Dracula - The Legacy Collection (Dracula / Dracula (1931 Spanish Version) / Dracula's Daughter / Son of Dracula / House of Dracula)

This is the original Dracula collection of movies including the original with Bela Lugosi.

I always thought Dracula was a little dark but if you know his origin being from Vlad the Impaler, then you will understand. The original still scares me a little. and although Bela Lugosi went off his rocker near the end, he was still a very scary character and made the film.

Nosferatu is also a very scary looking vampire and if you ever get a chance to see that film, it will give you the creeps!

      Okay you discovered my favorite ultra ego on Halloween. For years I was the countess, dressed in black, and slicked my hair back with baby oil. (Bite marks - I'll never tell?) Have a super Halloween.
