Hey there, Tiffany Bodily bringing you the hybrid project for today. I decided to go with an Autumn theme so that I could use my decor for both the months of October and November. You could just as easily go with the word “SPOOKY” and choose some fun Halloween papers from the shop if you want to use them specifically for Halloween. I purchased the wood block set from a local craft store but you could cut them yourself if you desired from a 2 x 4. The blocks have the following measurements: two blocks 5 inches high by 4 inches wide, two blocks 4 inches high by 3.5 inches wide, one block 4.5 inches high by 4 inches wide, and one 4 inches high by 2.75 inches wide.
Sand any rough edges on the blocks and then paint a dark brown.
In photoshop create the papers that you will later adhere to the front of your blocks. You will make them the measurements to match the blocks. I used SUPERSTITION – PAPER PACK 1 and SUPERSTITION – PAPER PACK 2 By Deena Rutter. I also used the following fonts: French Script MT, Segoe UI, MS Mincho, wmtrees1, Minion Pro, and Times New Roman. I selected a color for the font type to match the paint color I used on the blocks.
After printing out the paper lettering and cutting them out, I used some ink to distress the edges. I then used ModPodge to adhere the papers to the blocks.
Then comes the fun of arranging the blocks for display in your home with a few small pumpkins and leaves. I hope you enjoyed this craft.
