Cute DIY Wire Word Art for Halloween

This DIY wire word art sign is as spooky as I get for Halloween. And it’s one of my favorite Easy Halloween Party Ideas that you can try out this year!

I’m a scaredy-cat who would prefer to stay home on Halloween, not answer the door and be safe in my bed. But I have kids, I’m an adult and I’m not boring.  (Ok, the last one might be debatable). 

Twisting the wire means you can create whatever word of phrase you want as long as you can do it in cursive. “Boo” is nice and short so it works really well, but you can even try out names if you want to personalize your decor even more.

This is the perfect easy Halloween party decoration especially if you don’t love guts and gore.

To make your own DIY Halloween decoration, you will need just a few supplies.

That’s it! 

Of course you can use any color wire, but I love that black and white graphic look for Halloween decorating. So I had to use black wire.

My wire was 12 gauge.  Why does that make me think of rap songs and shotguns?

You can use thicker wire if you want, but you still need to be able to twist it easily, so keep that in mind. 

This 12 gauge wire was easy to bend, holds it’s shape really well, and doesn’t get all kinked up in the process.

A thinner gauge wire would also probably work, but the thinner the wire, the less it will stand out against the wall.

How to Make a “Boo” Wall Sign

Black craft wire twisted to form letters for a wall sign.

As you twist it together to make the word “boo”, think of how you draw cursive letters. Take it slow and look at how it reads as you twist it. 

If you need to, print out the word you are twisting on paper so you can follow along as you bend and have it visually in front of you.

Wire twisted to say the word "boo" taped to a wall with pink tape next to spooky black Halloween fabric.

Also, I left a lot of extra wire at the front and at the end which is how I taped the DIY Halloween sign to the wall.

I kind of love it.  It’s graphic, it’s kind of cute, it’s easy and it took me only a minute. Can’t stop, won’t stop with bright pink, FYI.

I wouldn’t say I am a skilled crafter so my letters aren’t super smooth. In this case, thanks to Halloween having spooky vibes, the jagged circles give it a bit of a creepy quality.

You can hang it up on your wall with pink tape as I did. Or you can hammer in nails to hang the “o’s” off of. Up to you.

Since it’s just going to be up for a very short while I definitely didn’t want to hammer nails into the wall.

I just styled this easy wall sign with a faux white pumpkin and a creepy Halloween fabric. Such a cute simple look.

And now that you know how easy these wire word art signs for Halloween are, you can make them for anything. 

Kind of adorbs for a kid’s name to hang in their room, right? Maybe twisted into “welcome” for by your front door. 

And I would also love to spell out “happy birthday” for a  celebratory garland. 

If you made one of these DIY wire signs, what would it say?
