About this project
Easy Halloween craft or gag gift made using recycled items for free!
I had originally seen something similar about 10 years ago on a co-workers desk and loved the idea and have make made several over the years not only as a decoration for Halloween, but also great as gag gift (especially for uptight co-workers that are worried they are going to be involved in a HR moment when they hear you say that you put a bottle of "Boos" on the desk. I usually use a smaller bottle and fabric and fabric paint, but for this one I decided to go with entirely recycled items and it is easy enough for school age children to make.
You Will Need
Cut circular to rectangle shapes out of the white parts of a plastic shopping bag - they don't have to be perfect. Cut out the parts with lettering and set in separate pile to use for stuffing for the head. Use the handles and and other strips as needed from other parts of the same bag or a different bag. I used 2 plastic bags total on my project.
Stuff the Boos into the bottle. On the longer and thicker ones, it is easier to twist the bottoms to get them to go in. If you want to adjust them once inside the bottle you can use a straw to push them around.
Use a Black marker or Sharpie to write "BOOs" on the outside of the bottle. If you wanted to go for a fancier look, you could create a label and print it off and stick it on the front.
