I made similar blocks for Valentine’s day last year that say LOVE. Since they were so easy and turned out cute, I decided to make some for Halloween. Here are the DIY Halloween “BOO” Blocks!
Supplies you need for the wooden BOO blocks:
– a 2×6 wood strip cut into heights: 6 inches, 7 inches and 8 inches
-Black paint & paint brush
-Black ink pad
I made my letters in Photoshop using the talented Crystal Wilkerson’s Spooky papers over at Jessica Sprague.com. I then added black digi letters on top of the orange digi paper. I then printed the .jpeg image the size of my block.
You could use festive scrapbook paper and letters from the craft store instead of using Photoshop.
Step 1: Get your letters ready. After I had cut them out, I inked around the edges and let them dry.
Step 2: Paint the back, edges and an inch in on the front of your wood blocks. Let dry. Then sand around the edges to give it a rustic finish.
Step 3: Use Modpodge to glue on your image. Paint over the letter with Modpodge to give it a sealed finish. (I prefer matte Modpodge)
Happy Spooky Crafting!
