Here it is, a Booing Poem Download. After many years I have decided this is the simplest way to Boo my friends. There is no need for them to make photocopies. Your friends just fill the cone with goodies and pass it from friend to friend. Now, there is one big problem——-those friends who refuse to pass the cone along because they want to keep it (you know who you are– hehe). I usually make about 5 cones to get everyone started and hope somebody passes one along.

I made a large cone out of black posterboard. I printed the poem on cardstock. I cut it out and glued a ruffle of orange crepe paper to the back. I backed the whole thing with a piece of poster board to make it more rigid. I hot glued the poem to the front of the cone. I embellished the top of the cone with a paper fringe I purchased at Hobby Lobby. I painted polka dots over the cone and added a touch of glitter here and there. I wrapped wire around a large dowel to make a curly handle and then attached it to the top of the cone. These are all just ideas for inspiration. You can make these cones however you want and with whatever supplies you have. You can also include a ghost cut-out if you want them to have something to hang in their window. It might be cute to hang a bunch of ghosts from the bottom of the cone so everyone can take one.

Please let me know if you are not able to download the poem. Here it is if you would like to copy and paste.

Since this is the time for goblins and bats

Halloween spirits and ghosts and cats

Happenings are weird and witches make brew

The following are the things I wish for you.

May the only spirit you chance to meet

Be thee spirit of love and friends that are sweet.

May the only goblin that comes your way

Be the neighborhood phantom, the breeze takes away.

So by tomorrow, pick a friend down the street

And give to them a Halloween treat.

Fill this cone with goodies galore,

Then hang it on their front door.

You only have one day to do this, so hurry

Leave treats on their door and run in a flurry

As this cone moves along from friend to friend,

All good wishes go on and never end


I have also made a sign instead of a cone.


I layered black cardstock, then a piece of brown paper sent through the crimper with some crepe paper fringe taped to the back, then the poem copied on cardstock. Punch two holes at the top and run a cord through the holes for hanging. I embellished the sign with a little glitter and a wooden pumpkin.

  6. I made my own boo bag this year! I am very, very excited to pass it to a neighbor and watch it move. I was wondering when the best time to begin a “boo” is? First week in October? Later than that? If I knew how to put a pic of my boo bag on here I would. I used the same poem. Thanks for the amazing idea!!

  7. What a fantastic idea. I am going to start this off this year where I live, in Germany. I may have to translate the poem though and hope that people pass it on. The kids will love it.

    Thanks for such great and fun ideas

  8. Happy October! I’m a huge fan of yours and have written to you before, you are always so sweet to write back with fabulous advice…I was wondering a few things…have you “Boo….ed” this year and what have you done? Do you have any pictures of last years Valentine’s party at your friends house? Have you done your annual Halloween party that you post pics of each year? I adore all of your tips and projects and have gotten so many ideas and compliments from them…of course I send everyone to your blog! Thank you for all you do and all you share with us…looking forward to all of your creative holiday treats!

  9. Well, what do you know??? The top picture with the vintage postcard — I painted that postcard onto a floorcloth for myself! I did pretty well if I do say so myself…free hand and all. Email me if you would like to see a picture!

  10. I made 5 so far for my office, it took me awhile to figure out how big to cut the circle. I tried the dinner plate idea and it wasn’t big enough for the poem, but great to make a perfect circle, well 3/4 of a circle. I also made Sugar & Spice Nuts, and some bookmarks to go along with my store bought chocolates.

  11. Thanks! These look great! I plan on doing some for my office, hanging them on doors and watching the fun!
