BOO! (A DIY Halloween Decoration)

This sweet and simple Halloween decoration craft was inspired by something I found on Pinterest, originally from eighteen25.

Isn’t that cute?  They used wooden letters and glitter to make each framed letter.  Head on over to their blog to see exactly how they did it.  I loved the idea and decided to make something similar, using things I already had around the house.

When Mike and I got married, at our rehearsal dinner we decorated the tables with framed pictures of us and the people sitting at each table.  It was a little bit of a project trying to find a picture of each guest, but well worth it.  We got the frames at the Dollar Store to keep the cost down.  Now I keep all the frames in a box in the basement and pull them out here and there for little crafting projects like this one.

So I already had all the supplies I needed.  Three frames, tape, a sharpie, scissors, computer paper and orange card stock.

I made each letter in Word and then printed them out.

Then I carefully cut out each letter.

Next using a black sharpie, I drew a border around each letter.

After cutting the orange card stock to fit the frames, I taped down each letter and framed them.

Done!  This is another one of those crafts (like Monday’s Halloween Word Art) that I can totally see redoing for other holidays.  Wouldn’t words like “Thanks” and “Noel” be so cute framed like this?
