Supplies needed to make this boo sign:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore however a portion of your purchase will go to support this site.
- Boo Word Art Base
- Black Chalky Paint
- Metallic Google Eyes (I used about 6 packages)
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
- Paint Brush
Start by giving your boo sign a few coats of the black chalky finish paint. It will take one to two coats to get adequate coverage. Be sure to let everything dry completely before continuing.
In the meantime, you can sort your googly eyes into colors. I did put blue and aqua into one pile as well as pink and purple.
Then just start using your hot glue gun to add the eyes to the sign. I used the amount I had of each color to determine where on the sign they would go. For instance, I had more blue/aqua so I put it on the “B”.
Continue adding eyes until the entire surface of your sign is covered. I also had a TON of glue strings. Pull as many off with your hands as possible then use a hair dryer to melt the rest. CAUTION: The hair dryer will also melt the google eyes if left in one place too long.
Once those glue strings are gone, you boo sign is ready to display anywhere around your home.
Get ready for Halloween by making your own boo sign. You will love how this one looks in your home.
