Boo-tastic Fabric Wrapped Letters


  • black and orange fabric, just some scraps!
  • craft wire – gauge 20-24 for easy bending
  • needle nose pliers
  • wire cutters
  • hot glue gun


1. Cut small strips of your orange and black fabric. I used alternating colors for my letters, so maybe 7-8 strips per color. This is a great way to use up your fabric scraps! Set these aside.

2. Start at one end of your wire and start to bend it in a letter shape. I made the word BOO, so I used my pliers to bend 3 letters with my wire. Use your wire cutters to clip off the ends of your wire when your letter is created. So this for each shape.

3. Warm up your hot glue gun and add a drop to one side of your wire letter. Add a strip of fabric in any color and start to wrap the fabric around and around. When the fabric runs out, add another drop of hot glue and secure the end of the fabric piece. Start with another piece of fabric where you last one left off.

Continue until all your fabric is used and all 3 letters are covered.

4. To attach all of your letters together for one word, you can either hot glue the sides of the letters together or tie an extra little piece of fabric around each letter where they would touch and tie a knot. I actually like the tied fabric look, so that’s how I did my BOO letters!

You’re done! It’s ready to display!

You’re going to be making these for every holiday, in all sorts of fun holiday words!


  1. Marie – I love this idea! We’re definitely making these! Noah is learning how to spell words and just learned the “oo” sound. “Boo” is perfect for him!

  2. Ashley – I just used craft wire. I didn’t need pliers or wire cutters for my wire because the pieces came in foot long lengths. Check out Goody Goody’s blog for all the how-to details.

    Thrilled – Yep, that’s my piano. I think it’s a great spot too.

  3. Marie it’s so fun to see all of your ideas…if only I had the energy to do them! But you really do such a good job with your blog! Thanks for coming by my food blog!

  4. We make Halloween bags for our children, so I have a ton of extra cute halloween fabric. Thank you for the great idea, I know feel better about saving all the leftovers.
