Boo Party Tray

Boo Party Tray

Posted by DecoArt on Oct 14th 2013

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays with my daughter.  She is still at the age where she loves to dress up in costume and go trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. The past couple of years, we have made it a family neighborhood affair. We meet at a friend’s house that is located in an ideal trick-or-treating neighborhood. We end up with about 5 families, and we all bring a potluck dish. Everyone enjoys a yummy dinner before we ascend as a group around the neighborhood. It is a great way to enjoy this fun holiday!

It’s always fun to decorate for Halloween, and this BOO stenciled party way is a fun way to accent any Halloween-inspired gathering or party. It was super simple to make, especially using the big 5” alphabet stencil font from Americana. Combine that with Pumpkin Patch orange Multi-surface Satin Paint, an inexpensive tray, and some cute washi tape, and you have a fabulous Halloween party tray.

Items Needed:

  • Paint Pouncer Brush
  • Painters Or Masking Tape
  • Decorative Washi Tape
  • Plastic Tray (I Found Mine At IKEA For $2)


I started by taping down the first letter on my clear plastic tray, keeping in mind the spacing needed for three letters, B-O-O.

I carefully applied the orange Multi-surface Satin paint with a paint pouncer, and let it dry before removing the stencil.

Then, I used the same technique to stencil the rest of the word, lining up the letters as I went.

I was able to use the other letters in the stencil as a guide for lining them up evenly and in a straight line next to each other.

After my stenciled “BOO” was dry, I applied stripes of decorative coordinating washi tape along the top and bottom of the tray for additional detail.
