How to make a $5 "BOO" halloween decoration.
Oh Dollar Tree, how I love thee. We just got a newer, bigger Dollar Tree where I'm at, and it's a crafters dream! I get so inspired walking through, and it's great to know I can experiment and stock up on supplies without breaking my budget.
$1 - 8" branch wreaths (2)
$1 - plain black 7"x11" mirror
$.69 - Black acrylic paint
$1.47 - Black spray paint, matte
Total cost - $5.16
For the "B" - I freehanded the letter on the mirror after cleaning it. I based it on some Halloween fonts I found online. Go ahead and layer it on pretty thick, the uneven, splotchy look works really well for Halloween!
I painted around the frame to give it a similar texture, even though it was already black.
In a well ventilated area, spray the wreaths with the black spray paint. It took me a couple coats to get around into all the nooks and crannies, but they turned out so great!
There you have it! I temporarily hung mine on the wall, but wouldn't this be adorable on a front door? I think those command strip hooks would work perfectly to hang them (the picture frame does come with hanging hardware on the back).
