Boo - Altered Wooden Letters in a Spooky-Cute Combo

Sorry I have been missing -  I was busy preparing for the Craft Fair for the last month (was last Saturday and went very well!)

As I type this I am enjoying the nice cool fall weather we finally have here in south Texas!

My latest craft fair project was this cute (yet spooky) BOO d├ęcor.

I took the basic wooden letters (on sale from Hobby Lobby) and witch doctored them up!

What do you think? (details bellow)


CRFAT FAIR NOTES: I had this for sale at the craft fair for $10 - however, a very nice lady stopping said she had just purchased some "boo blocks" that were no where near as cute as mine for $15.  She said she would feel guilty buying my for that price with all the work I put into them, so... when she didn't buy them I decided I'd like to keep them for myself and raised the price to $20 -  people asked but no one bought.  I sold lots of snowmen (later post)  sold some Witch hats and Gnomes (later post) and the thing I sold most of was my wilted pathetic ghosts" -  the Ghost got all ruined in the humidity (starch and cheese cloth) and I thought I was going to have to give then away or trash them but once I added the word "pet" they flew off like, well ghosts!
