I love having a little splash of decor outside my home to give folks an idea of what might be going on inside. These fun BOO garden stakes add just a hint of fright to my yard for Halloween. I'm not big of the gory and super scary this time of year, so these playful letters are just right for me.

Roundup: 12 Projects that Prove Spray Paint is the Best DIY Material EVER

By: Diy maven Sep 29, 2015

I used to be afraid of spray paint. Not the paint, really, but the potential for globs and drips.
