BOO Blocks!

Last year I was over at a friend's house when I noticed a really cute Halloween decoration. I snapped a picture on my phone and kept it prisoner there for almost a year before I decided to recreate it for our house!
I really had to get up the nerve to do this because I'm not very good with wood crafting yet. Luckily we had some wood in our garage, and it turns out we had a jigsaw that just needed a blade! So I put my big girl pants on and used power tools! I have to admit, it was pretty empowering to do it myself and not have anyone  make the cuts for me.
I didn't measure my friend's blocks, so I just had guess-timate! After a few straight cuts I was ready to sand and paint! 
I cut the letters out of black glitter cardstock on my Silhouette and adhered them with some adhesive spray.
Thanks to my friend Amy for inspiring me to make an awesome Halloween decoration all by myself!

  3. These are really cute, and easy to store since they're not huge. Good job.

    1. I hadn't thought about storage yet, but you're right. They're a nice sturdy project I won't have to worry about mashing up in a box!
