|the finished altered BOO|
i have seen lots of altered chipboard letters done with scrapbook paper and halloween seemed like a good festive season to try this craft :) i chose BOO because it's cute and not too long!
|the materials i used for this creation :)|
i first painted the letters black and then covered the front of them in scrapbook paper. then decided to distress the edges to give them a less crisp finish. finally i added some spider embellishments and they were done!

|added the embellishments and these were good to display!|
outcome: it's a really simple idea but one that is really effective. i chose not to over do these ones as they are going in a bookcase which is already cluttered! for future ones i would like to try adding more embellishments and ribbons to the letters but love these ones just as they are :)
my thanks to pete and kerry's altered crafts website for their inspiration i used to get started on this altered craft ... definitely want to do more of these for other festive seasons :)
