Do you have a letter board? When I first saw them making the decor rounds a few years ago I knew I had to have one. I waited until they were relatively inexpensive and picked one up and haven’t looked back.

I also bought a few packages of letters, numbers, and symbols, because well, you need accessories in life even if it is for your letter board.

I use mine all the time for birthdays, holidays, and more and a few months ago I saw a super cute ghost on a letterboard. I studied it hard (beads of sweat on my forehead hard), grabbed my letters, numbers, and symbols and got busy and I’m sharing it today as part of this month’s Thrifty Style Team blog.

Head to the bottom of this post to see all of the other wonderful and thrifty things the rest of the team is sharing. 

Things to Remember When Making Your Letter Board Ghost

This isn’t exactly rocket science (I so wish I was a rocket scientist…but I digress) and was really easy to make, you just have to be sure you keep a curved, roundish style on the top for the ghost head and straight sides.

Other than that, just add letters, numbers, and symbols until you have the look you like. 

How To Make a Letter Board Ghost – Boo


Rather than show you step-by-step via pictures, I thought a video would be more helpful and it’s only about 30 seconds long and you can pause it if you need to so you can follow along and make one yourself.

How To Clean a Letter Board

One more thing, before you get started making your ghost, I wanted to share a simple way to clean a letter board. 

Use compressed air. That’s it. Point the air toward each little slat/opening and spray away. In no time your letter board is clean and ready for a new design.

So how easy was this?
