Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts



Materials List

  • Wide Ribbon
  • Wood letters to spell out boo
  • wood cutout in banner shape
  • wood glue
  • black and white spray paint
  • hot glue gun
  • foam cutout of ghost


  1. First, paint your wood letters white. I chose to use the color Polar by Plutonium Paint. For the banner that will go behind the letters I used Deep Space by Plutonium. Once all the wood pieces were done I used Elmers wood glue to ensure they stayed together.

  2. While the glue dried I cut my ribbon to the right size. Because I wanted to hang this on my front door I cut my ribbon about 10? long and folded it in half. I glued each side to the back of the wood sign with a hot glue gun. Next, take another piece of ribbon about 5? long and glue the top of the ribbon to the bottom of the wood sign. Take the other end of the string and glue it to the cut out of the ghost shape. The ghost cut out I used was foam and was on sale for only $1. I liked using a foam piece on this project because it wouldnt weigh down the sign.

  3. Make sure all the hot glue is completely hanging your project.
