Are you ready for Fall yet? I’m looking forward to some cooler temps! August in Alabama is HOT!!
I thought it might be fun to get started on some Fall crafting projects as I wait for the cooler weather to come our way… 🎃

I found this “BOO!” mdf word at Dollar Tree for, yes, $1.00! It measures about 12-inches long, about 4-inches wide, and about 1/2-inch thick. It also has a twine hanger at the top, which I cut off because I wasn’t going to hang it that way.
The rectangle slatted wood panel came from Hobby Lobby. It measures about 6.25-inches wide, about 15.75-inches long, and about 1.25-inches thick. It also came with a twine hanger that I cut off because it was on the long side and I wanted my project to hang lengthwise.
You’ll need a 1.75-inch sponge dabber (I found a package of 3 different sizes at Dollar Tree), black, white, and orange acrylic paint, various ribbons, and a button for the bow. (Here’s a great set of acrylic paints you can add to your craft room so you’re always ready to create.)
I painted the front and sides of the rectangle slatted wood panel with black paint. I used a chip brush to apply the paint. I only painted one coat and didn’t worry about getting it perfectly covered since you can see the staples that were used to put it together. It gives it a bit of a weathered look.
I painted the front and sides of the “BOO!” with 2 coats of orange paint, letting it dry between coats. When the 2nd coat was dry, I used the sponge dabber to add random dots with white paint. Make sure to let the dots dry completely!
I glued the “BOO!” to the wood panel using E6000 clear adhesive. Then I made a super easy bow using the Re-Fabbed bow method and glued it to the wood panel. I tied a black button with orange and white baker’s twine and glued it to the center of the bow.
And here’s how it turned out! I just love it! It’s so fun and cute!
If you can’t find the “BOO!” sign, you can use individual letters instead and it would be just as cute.
This was a super inexpensive project to make. I used my 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby for the wood panel, so I got it for $3.00. The “BOO!” was, of course, $1.00, the sponge dabbers were $1.00, and I had all the other supplies on hand. So $5.00 out of pocket for this fun Halloween project!! I love when that happens! 🙂
Happy Fall Crafting! 🎃
