Boo! holiday board


We're adding to our holiday boards with this "boo-tiful" board for Halloween.
A fun part of your front door decor!
I'm using a 5'x12" pine board.
Use black craft acrylic and paint one side.
After it drys, paint over it with orange.
Let it dry for a few hours and then sand.
I just used my little hand held mouse sander to get some of that black to show through.
So happy with the rough look of the sanded paint!


I had some of these cut out wood letters from my local craft store
and used them as a template for the BOO letters.
Trace around the bottom O and B first, then add the middle O- this sequence helps with your spacing of the letters.  I left some extra room on top for a bow.


Paint in your letters.
I'm using a dark gray metallic.
Picks up the shine of the sun.
Loving the combinations of all these paints!


Then tie on a fun bow.


I've got black tulle, sheer purple and topped it off with a glittered spider on web from the dollar store. 


Welcoming all for Halloween.
BOO to you!
