Boo Sign

Piece of wood
Painters tape
Black paint  (spray paint)
White paint
scrapbook paper
sparkly pipe cleaners
hot glue

-Start by spray painting the entire piece of wood black (after i made this I realized it would have been easier to paint the whole thing white first, because black is hard to cover up with white paint)
-once dry, tape off a pattern. doesn't need to be perfect, I figured the more imperfect the spookier.

-Paint white where you have marked off

-Fill in any paint that leaked through

-Trace and cut out letters. I used the top of a bowl for the outside and the bottom of the bowl for the inside of the "O". Then free handed a "B"
-Intertwine sparkly pipe cleaners to make as long as needed to fit across board

-hot glue one end of the pipe cleaner to the back of the board
-slide letters through and hot glue in place
-hot glue other end of pipe cleaner to board

Pin It!
