DIY Halloween Door Decor

DIY boo halloween decor

Since I made a non-Halloween-inspired craft last week, I decided to stick with a Halloween craft this time around. Every DIY that I make this month is going to be Halloween-inspired, so if you have any ideas, or just want to see a specific craft, let me know! I’m always excited to hear your ideas.

I found all of the supplies at Pat Catan’s and it costed about $10. I love the character in the Os too. They almost look like pumpkins when painted orange.

Things You Will Need:
Brush
Letters
Ribbon
Acrylic paint

*You can ignore the DecoColor pens in the picture. I had originally planned to use them but decided halfway through the project that I liked the way the decor looked without it.

Step 1
Paint all three letters orange.

Let them dry.

Step 2
While the paint dries, you can make your bow.

Now that I look at the picture, the ribbon looks like cheetah print, but I swear it’s not. They’re bats on an orange background.

Step 3
Hot glue some ribbon to the back of the letters so that they hang vertically. Make sure you use A LOT of glue or it won’t hold the weight.

Please ignore the unpainted backing of my letters. No one is going to see it while it’s hanging on my door. Just pretend you never saw it.

Now you can tie it to your door with a little more ribbon and you have yourself a cute Halloween door decoration.

If you plan to hang your Boo decoration outdoors, you should spray it with a clear gloss spray to protect it from the weather. Make sure you spray it in a well-venilated area. I’ve made the mistake of not doing that. It’s rough…

Let me know what you think! I’d love to hear your feedback.

    • Absolutely! It was pretty easy. Waiting for the paint to dry takes the longest amount of time overall. It’s fun though 🙂
