DIY “Boo” Letters

Alrighty, let’s get started! Here are the items you will need!


The letter “B” and two “O” letters. I would also recommend lying down some newspaper so that you don’t get everything all paint. If you read my last post, you can see my header photo for the post is the outlines of the letters from where I painted on the paper.


Any kind of paint brushes (if you want an easier clean up I would recommend sponge brushes).


Any kind of black paint will work but I bought acrylic since it is one of the more permanent paints. It dries quickly and you can also choose between a glossy or a matte finish. I chose a matte finish since it seemed to fit the whole Halloween theme a little better!


The letter “B” $1.97

The letter “O” $1.97

The letter “O” $1.97

Black paint     $0.97

The brush set $3.97


Total Cost: $10.85


  1. So this is a pretty self explanatory DIY. Lay all the letters down on the newspaper you layed out.
  2. Squirt some paint out on the first letter and coat the front and all the sides of the letter with the black paint, making sure there are no spots uncovered(I didn’t paint the back of them, but you could if you really wanted to!).
  3. Let the paint dry.
  4. Then you can hang them up or lean them on a surface for a cute and easy decoration!


Here is the finished product!

Other potential additions:

  • Once the black paint dries you could add small circles in glue and glitter or in a different colored paint.
  • You could paint each letter a different color.
  • You could add washi tape.
  • You could tie orange or purple ribbon onto the upper section of the letter “B.”
  • You could also do this for other holidays as well (with a different word of course).
