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! 🎃
That is super cute. I need to get to Dollar Tree and see what fall stuff they have out. My daughter went to one last week and found all kinds of stuff.
Thank you! Yes, you do before it’s all gone. 🎃
