Jen Goode with 100 Directions is back again this month with tips to make your own boo bags! If you have not joined the boo bag tradition, what are you waiting for?
Have you joined the Boo Bag fun yet? We’ve been booing our neighbors and friends for years. So, today I’m going to share some tips to make your own Boo Bags. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, “booing” is giving treats to friends or neighbors without telling them who gave them the treat. It’s common to include a sign of some kind that is displayed at houses that have been booed, then the kids can watch as the booing spreads around the neighborhood, 2 neighbors at a time. It’s fun and easy and the kids love it!

Dig through your scrap wood pile and make your own DIY Beware Bat Sign for Halloween this year! All you need is some wood, paint and a little time to wait for paint to dry. If you’ve got some black paper, you can add a few bats for fun, but just the painted sign will work too. I don’t have a fancy template for this project, I did a lot of pencil, eye-balling sketching to make this project work. I’ll show you how it’s done… in just a few steps.
