DIY BOO Halloween Decoration Sign

Posted on October 9, 2017 in Crafts/ DIY/ Holidays

Do you like decorating for holidays? What about Halloween? Plenty of times I’ve decorated and gone all out for the outside of our homes. This year, our front got transformed for Halloween on the 2nd! I couldn’t wait!

I’ve bought quite a bit at the different dollar stores but I really like to DIY things myself, or get my kids to help out with DIY’ing some decorations. Not only is this usually cheaper but it always looks better in my opinion and I love having the memories of making them hold on to!

Today, I’m going to share with you how to make a DIY BOO Sign for Halloween! You can keep in on your mantel, put it in the window or put it on your table! It’s super cute, and works any way you wish to display it!

Materials Needed:

  • 2 O wood letters
  • 1 B wood letter –letters are Craftwood by Darico brand 1.5″ letters and come 2 in a package.
  • 2 Oval Google Eyes
  • Black Acrylic paint
  • White Acrylic paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Hot Glue
  • 4 wood blocks -used scrap wood. they are 1.5″ x 1.5″ x 1.5″ pieces of wood
  • Sand Paper

Directions:

  1. Use sand paper to knock off the rough edges of your wood if applicable.
  2. Paint the wood blocks black. Let dry.
  3. Paint the three wood letters with white paint and let dry.
  4. Attach the letters to each block with hot glue.
  5. Attach the google eyes with hot glue.
  6. Stack and display!

    Now that’s just cute! And it doesn’t look super complicated to make either. I love Halloween but usually buy decorations because I’m not super crafty. But this…this I could do! Not to mention, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Thanks for sharing! :)

    That’s a cute sign! I like that it’s small. It seems like I’ve only been seeing gigantic decorations lately, and I don’t want to store those!

    Oh my gosh, how cute is that?! I love it! You could do any color/holiday too, which is one of my favorite things about it. The googly eyes are a great little touch.

    I love the rolly eyes included in the BOO sign. That’s a great extra touch. This is so cute and such a great touch to get in the Halloween spirit.

    This wooden sign is so cute! It would make the perfect background accent for filming YouTube videos around Halloween. I think I will make my own!

    I was more a DIYer as a kid but not so much as an adult. I have gotten a little more into it as a blogger because I often need to create interesting backgrounds or accessories for my photos. I adore this simple Boo sign. It’s such a quick and fun way to bring the Halloween spirit into your home.
