Here I go again with my fascination with Pinterest. I found these awesome Halloween blocks that I had to attempt. So, off to Hobby Lobby I went...
Instead of creating blocks that spelled "treats," I decided to make ones with the word "spooky." I like that saying a little better for Halloween.
Here is the process and the final outcome. I think they turned out really cute! Next, I am making a set of "believe" Christmas blocks. When I finish that project, I will post a picture of the end result.
The before... lumber from Home Depot
that I had cut down.
I put two coats of black paint on the edges
and the side without the scrapbook paper.
The scrapbook paper that will be covering the front. This paper
was purchased from Hobby Lobby.
I measured and cut the paper to fit each block. I used
different size blocks to add some interest.
The scrapbook paper cut to size.
Next, I glued the paper to the front of the blocks.
The before and after.
All of the blocks with the scrapbook paper glued on.
After a lot of debate, I decided to use chipboard letters for
the word "spooky" that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.
The letters with a coat of spray primer and two coats
of purple spray paint.
Now, time to sand the edges.
The final product with the letters hot glued on. I am very happy
Happy Sunday Everyone!
