BOO Kit Floating Ghost Decoration

Want to share some festive fun with someone in your life this fall? It’s time to BOO them! No tricks involved, just treats they’re sure to enjoy. How does BOO’ing work? All you have to do is:

  1. Make a BOO Bundle.
  2. Secretly deliver it.
  3. Encourage the recipient to BOO it Forward.

Here’s how easy it is. I decided to BOO our next door neighbors because they are totally obsessed with Halloween. It’s literally their favorite holiday, and they really go all out decorating and celebrating. In fact, this year they are planning to turn their yard into a haunted house experience that anyone in the neighborhood can walk through for the cost of donating a canned good for the local food bank. I knew they’d appreciate a BOO bundle, so I headed to Walmart where I was able to pick up everything I needed to make this not-so-scary Floating Ghost. Walmart is like a one-stop BOO shop with all the seasonal candy, stickers, and other items you need for this festive project.


Here’s how I created my BOO Kit and turned it into a ghostly surprise.



American Greetings® Halloween stickers
M&M’S® Fun Size
TWIX® Fun Size
Skittles® Original Fun Size
Starburst® Fun Size
Life Savers® Gummies Fun Size
Plastic pumpkin bucket
White plastic tablecloth
White yarn or string
Black permanent marker
Printable BOO Card

Creating your BOO Bundle

Step 1: Fill your bucket with candy and stickers.


I filled mine with a variety of chocolate candies {SNICKERS® Fun Size, M&M’S® Fun Size, and TWIX® Fun Size} along with a mixture of Skittles® Original Fun Size, Starburst® Fun Size, and Life Savers® Gummies Fun Size. I also included two different packs of American Greetings® Halloween stickers on top.


Step 2: Place the bucket on the floor and lay the tablecloth on top, with the center of the tablecloth directly over the bucket.

Step 3: Cut a small slit in the center of the tablecloth and slide the handle through it.

Step 4: Gather the tablecloth underneath the bucket and tie it with white string.


Step 5: Use a marker to draw eyes and a mouth.


Step 6: Download and print one of these cards from and tie it to the handle.


Step 7: Hang it from a hook on your neighbor’s porch!


I think this would be such a fun surprise to find, don’t you?!
