DIY | Halloween Boo Wall Hanging

I love Halloween almost as much as I love Christmas. Although in the UK we don’t celebrate Halloween in the same way as they do in America, I do like to decorate the house with my Yankee Candle Halloween candle holders and other Halloween things or “Tat” as Mr M likes to call it.
 
I will be making a few things too for Halloween but today I will be starting off with showing you my Halloween Boo wall hanging (if you live in warmer climes than Scotland or if your front door is sheltered, you could hang it up outside).

What you need:

Wooden Letters 1 x B and 2 x O. I bought these from an eBay shop.
Black Glitter Spray ( I used 2 x 200ml Cans)
Ribbon or Raffia to tie the letters together.
Newspaper
Anything you would like to decorate with
 
 

How to make:

Place newspaper on the floor or on a table in a well ventilated room – I did this outside as it was a really nice day.
Put your letters on the newspaper and cover your letters in the black glitter spray.  Wait until completely dry before doing the other side.  Now hindsight is a wonderful thing as I would have painted the letters black first before spraying them, instead they are a silvery grey colour but that still works fine :).

Once both sides have been sprayed and are dry, attach them together by tying your ribbon or raffia through the hole in the bottom of the B to the hole of the O and then join that letter through the other O.

I stuck on a wooden pumpkin, Witches broom and Witches hat that I already had in my craft stash. I will hang it up with a Command Hook on the back of my door but you could attach a ribbon or a hook at the back if you wanted to hang it up on your wall.

    Awwww thanks Pilar :). I do love getting creative but I'm no good at crocheting/sewing/knitting and colouring in and gluing things together are my limits. I'm envious of the fact that you can crochet as it must be nice to wear something you have made xx

      You're welcome! It's pretty cool i can make some of my own accessories. Your crafting is great also bc you can decorate your home. I think handmade items are so sentimental, diy project are so great lol! I keep mentioning to my followers I really want to get a video tutorial set up so I can help those who want to learn or continue with their crocheting skills. I'm working on it! I have to get all my ideas and the techinical stuff together. I want to make sure it's easy to follow.

    Thanks Louise 😊! Think it cost just under £10 for the letters and paint which wasn't too bad as if you bought a wall hanging like this it would probably cost over £18-20. It was fun to make too x
