How to Make a BOO! Paper Mache Halloween Wall Hanging
These ghostly letters are sure to startle when they spell out “BOO!” on any wall in your home. Customize these paper mache letters with eerily colored paper, your favorite Halloween embossing folders and ghoulish trinkets or use other paper mache letters to spell out a different spooky statement.
Use a foam brush and the black acrylic paint to paint the letters black.
Emboss the cardstock with a selection of embossing folders.
Using a Foamie marshmallow, apply ink to the embossing on the papers.
Attach the embossed cardstock to the paper mache letters using Hercules glue.
Trim off any excess paper using the X-ACTO knife.
Lightly sand the edges of the cardstock and rub with ink pad.
Embellish the letters with ribbon and mini ornaments.
Connect letters with ribbon
Cut 3 4” lengths of black ribbon and hot glue them to the backs of the letters, attaching the letters together.
Tie a bow
Tie a multi-ribbon bow using different widths of ribbon, and attach it to the top letter.
