I’m having a ball putting together some Halloween decorations! And this project was a great way of using up some of my Halloween craft supplies. These simple MDF letters are literally suitable for ALL seasonal decor. You just pick your preferred word and off you go! Here’s how simple it is to add some fun to a quick display!
What I used to make my BOO sign
Decoupage MDF letters from Hobbycraft.
Some Halloween paper card stock from The Range
Googly eyes – mine came in a craft pack but they’re everywhere this time of year!
Ribbons of your choice
A creepy crawly of your choice – I bought this pack from The Range
Let’s get creative!
I’m making these letters for my Halloween tree. Which will probably have a white/orange and black theme (who knows though .. I’m known for changing my mind last minute!). And so I picked out the paper with these colors from the cardstock pack.
I started by simply tracing the letters onto the paper.
Cut out the shape and that’s a big step of your project done! Follow the same process for all your letters.
I picked coordinating colours but different patterns to add a bit of variety. You’ll see a bit lower down!
One thing I did do (and I forgot to take a progress photo .. oopsie!!), was to paint the inside and the outside of the letters with black acrylic paint. But don’t worry, it’s as easy as it sounds! And you can catch the photos of what it looks like a little later in the post.

I didn’t take a lot of progress pics because I made this one on a Live! You can see the full video on how I made these letters on my Facebook Live session here. While you’re there, you may want to “like” my page so you don’t miss out on any future projects I’m doing?
Once you’ve traced all the letters and cut out the paper, glue them to your letters with Mod Podge. As my letters are only going to be “hanging out” on the tree, I left it there. BUT if your letters are going to get a lot of wear and tear, I would recommend covering the whole project with another layer of Mod Podge and leaving it to dry.
Even without the additional items, just on its’ own this is looking adorable AND definitely worthy for any Halloween display! However, I had lots of items left over so decided to add these for additional spooky fun!
Like these googly eyes for the pumpkins on the “B”. When I traced the paper I positioned it like this on purpose, trying to keep as many of the eyes. I think they look adorable!
With some left over scrap pieces of ribbon I created a messy bow for the middle “O”
And the bat paper comes to life with the bat popping out!
Eventually, I am going to add these MDF letters to my tree (stay tuned!!). However, if you’re not as crazy as I am, and you’re not doing a tree, they also look great all lined up as a display!!
What do you think? Which one is your favourite?
