Let's Make Some Halloween Blocks


I love to change up my Home Decor with the Seasons!
BUT
I don't like to spend a ton of money....
These easy and inexpensive to make blocks are just my cup of tea!
Here's how to make and what you need: 
 Mod Podge and some paint. 
 Blocks
Did you know that Home Depot has a scrap bin??? 
I got a piece of wood for 51 CENTS!!!!
AND the BEST part is they CUT it for you!!
51 cents is so worth not having to beg the hubby to cut me some wood in his spare time:) 


I used this wonderful 12x12 scrap page template from
Heritage Makers.
I love them because someone already designed them and all I have to do is order a page!

I could have also added a photo but that's for a later date....I'm making decor blocks for each season with a picture of our family

They are about $3.95 and cheaper the more you buy.....
You can sign up for a FREE account and check out all the templates at http://www.storykeepsakes.com/


Here some other wonderful templates:



Cut your 12x12 page...
I used a matching color and painted the edges of each block..
Then glue each square with Mod Podge on front and back of each block....let dry and..... 
Decorate! 
I LOVE my new Halloween Blocks! 
Four Decor Blocks for less than $4!

We mod podged paper on the letters and then glued them on the blocks.

Our Home Depot got rid of the scrap bin. I was so sad!
