Paint/Wood/Metal: Halloween Decorations

   To be completely honest, I had no idea what I was going to do when I first put this on my blog challenge.  I went into the craft store with nothing in mind and came up with something rather quickly.  I saw the signs that said spooky, scary etc. and they were glittery and expensive.  So I decided I was going to make my own.

 3 5x5 wood squares $.99 each
 Letters to spell out Boo $.99 each
 Acrylic wood paint $2.39 each
 Paint brushes
 Hot glue
 Push pins

How to:
   1.  Paint your letters and wood squares your desired colors and then glue the letters to the squares.
   2.  Attach the ribbon to the back of the squares with push pins
 Hope you guys like this and make ones yourself.  This project was really easy and added a spook-takular touch to my entryway.

My supplies

Painted and set out to dry.

My ribbon attached by push pins.

Boo!  Loving this finished project.


  1. Thanks! The glitter paint that I got wasn't the best but I think I will try to come up with something else to find better glitter paint.
