October Make and Take {BOO Blocks}

Last week I hosted my October Make and Take. Since it is October after all, the project of course had to be Halloween related! I decided we would tackle some BOO Blocks this month!
So I choose the project, invited all of the ladies, and we had a great night of crafting!!! I had a big showing of ladies this month, which makes it all so much more fun!!! If you look closely you may notice a couple things…..they decided that spelling out certain words and covering some of their faces would be fun….just as long as they know it’s STILL going on the blog!!!
So, do you wanna make some BOO Blocks for yourself???
Here’s what you need:-2×6 blocks (Cut to 6in, 7in, and 8in)

-Scrapbook Paper
-Craft Paint
-Ribbon
-Mod Podge
-Letters
The first step it to cut the blocks down into 6, 7, and 8 inch pieces. Then it’s time to use the craft paint to cover the blocks. I choose to stick with alternating orange and black.
Once the paint was dry it was time to decoupage. I used some Mod Podge to attach the scrapbook paper to the fronts of the blocks. I alternated paper to match my painted blocks.
Then it’s time to add some letters!!! The letters are made from black cardstock that I cut with my Cricut. I waited for the Mod Podge to dry and then added the letters with a little more podge. When I make things like this I cover the whole thing in podge to protect both the paint and paper.
All that’s left to do it the embellishments. I decided to keep things simple and just add some ribbon. I alternated the colors of ribbons to contrast with the blocks paint and paper. The ribbon loops all the way around each block at ends in a pretty bow on the top of the block.
I think they turned out so cute! I think everyone’s turned out so cute! Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun with these! If you decide to make some, I’d love for you to send me the link so I can see how yours turned out!
Linking up to these great link parties!!!

  2. The boob blocks are adorable!

  3. I love those!! Do you have any suggestions of what to do so the paper doesn’t bubble? Whenever I try and mod podge paper down on the wood blocks, it bubbles up. Thank so much!
