i really do love HALLOWEEN

i am so excited i can hardly stand it. i started decorating yesterday with the kids. trey and i made these fun wooden blocks today. we'll show you how!

i found these pre-sanded pre-painted wooden blocks at craft warehouse. if your craft store doesn't have them you'll have to cut, sand, and paint your own wood blocks.
cut scrap booking paper to the size of your wood blocks.


oh how i love mod podge. i have gone through a couple bottles in the last few months :o)
so put a nice healthy coat of mod podge on your wooden block.

two seconds before this picture was taken trey asked "mom can you eat this stuff?" oh how i wish we could trey.

place your paper onto the mod podge. make sure to push down the corners. trey is doing such a nice job here.

then cover the top of your paper with another coat of mod podge.

i bought these wooden letters at Michaels. my little craft slave :o) went to bed at this point, so i had to finish these up by myself.


paint the letters, let them dry, tie some pretty little bows onto them, and glue gun to your wooden blocks.
