Quick & Easy Halloween Door Decoration


Haven't decorated for Halloween yet?! Don't stress! I hadn't either, but I knew I wanted to, I just needed something quick, easy and cheap!! Enter, this easy wooden letter project!

I just picked up some wooden letters to spell "Boo" from the local craft store which was under $5 for all 3 of them. I already had black paint and orange scrapbook paper at home, and some coordinating ribbon, so all I needed were the letters. 
I painted each letter with 2 coats of black acrylic paint. 
While the letters dried, I cut out some "dots" using a paper punch I already had. I selected 4 different orange patterns and went to town. Then I artfully arranged them on the letters before gluing them down to make sure I had enough. 
Once I was certain I had enough "dots" I started gluing them down using my favorite Mod Podge (matte) medium. 
I let the Mod Podge dry overnight. The next morning, I used my orange ribbon to tie the 3 letters together. I actually used a hot glue gun to make sure the ribbon stayed in place. 
And that's it! Next, I went outside and hung it on the door. 
I moved my Fall popcorn wreath over to make room for the "Boo" door decoration (placed it above my candy-corn inspired fall plant display - using an updated step-ladder). 
After Halloween, the "Boo" will come down and I'll put the Fall popcorn wreath back up until after Thanksgiving. Here's to making decorations that last MONTHS!!!

  2. That's really cute. I'm a fan of polka dots, also. I like the ribbon tying them together. I don't do much Halloween decorating, but something like this would be fun.
