You’ve Been Boo’d Surprise Gift Boxes

Hello, My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days here to share with you a Halloween tradition we do every year.

It is Halloween! That means it is time to come up with our “You’ve Been Boo’d” ideas. We love to “boo” our family and friends around Halloween each year. If you are not familiar with “booing”, it is basically setting some kind of gift/novelty/treats, etc. on the front porch of your family and friends, ringing the doorbell and running away before they catch you. Fun, right?! My kids get so excited to do this each year.

When October 1st rolls around, my kids are ready to make their list and get busy putting the “boo” goodies together. This year, we used these white boxes I had.

To make these boxes fit the part, we used chalkboard labels. I also used these labels on our candy corn gifts for the teachers.

We used a white chalk marker to write “You’ve Been Boo’d” on the labels.

Each year at the end of the Halloween season, I always shop the clearance to pick up things I can use the following year. We used a lot of those things in this year’s “boo” boxes. We included some ‘chocolately’ goodness too. 🙂

I had small Halloween paper bags that we filled with our goodies. We put the bags inside the boxes.

In the end, I tied some orange and white baker’s twine around each box.

 

We are all ready to “boo” our family and friends. We are keeping our fingers crossed that we have another successful night and that no one catches us.

Have you ever been “boo’d”?
