Gooble Til You Wobble

I love to decorate my mantle for the different seasons and one of my favorite ways is with words blocks.  I always have a different word on my mantle for each season.  This year I made up Some “Gobble Til Ya Wobble” words blocks.  I think they are fun and match my other fall items perfectly.

The blocks are made from wood, covered with fall paper and for the lettering I used brown vinyl.  I then embellished with raffia and brown ribbon.

Here is a close up of these cute blocks

Beware Sign by Summer

Once a month I get together with six of my girlfriends and we exchange something we have made.  Because we are in October I wanted to make/bring something Halloween related.  So I made this wood board that says Beware.

This is super quick and easy to make – so lets get started!

Materials Needed:

Cut the board to the size that you want and sand then paint black.  Then cut your scrapbook paper to be slightly less in size than the board.  I usually cut mine to be 1/4 or 1/2 inch smaller.

Mod Podge the scrapbook paper onto your wood board.

Cut out a fun Halloween word with your vinyl – I cut out Beware

Add the vinyl to your wood board

Now with your black embroidery floss criss cross it around the board – like a spider web.  Then tie into a knot.  You could tie the knot in the back but I like the look of the knot tied in the front.

And there you have it – a fun, quick and simple Halloween Sign.

Stacking Wood Blocks

Consider cutting your 2 x 4 blogs different heights to create a fun look similar to this. I especially love the “is everything” smaller piece of wood they are resting on along the bottom. Get creative with how you stack your blocks. Family Wood Blocks
