DIY: Halloween Decor!

Hey y'all!  Halloween is just around the corner! Time to get out the decorations and I have a great idea for you.
Last year while browsing Pinterest for spooky ideas, I was inspired by this fabulous sign from Sharon Burkert @ As The Ink Dries.  I just had to give it a try, the DIY Lori way.

I had a frame that could be recycled, but headed to Hobby Lobby for some boo-tiful scrap paper, wooden letters, black spray paint, and double sided tape.  All of the aforementioned and some scissors or a rotary cutter is all you'll need to complete this project.

Lets do this:

Obviously you can spell out whatever you want, but I chose "BOO."

I painted the letters first so they could dry while I work on the rest.
Rust-Oleum is my go-to spray paint.  In my experience/opinion it works the best and dries fast.


Cut your decorative paper to size.  (I decided to overlap three different patterns/paper.)

Use double sided (clear) tape to make your background and then to tape it to the INSIDE of the glass frame.

(Sorry for the glare.)


The last step is to line up and position your dried letters, and secure with hot glue.  
Don't ya love it?!

I love Halloween, it's my top 3 favorite holidays.  Expect more posts on this spooky, fun tradition in the near future. ;)

Have a fun and creative day!
