This is the first of my Halloween decorating this year. I started with the blocks that I made for Thanksgiving - that I was planning on switching up for different seasons...
These Thanksgiving blocks have a quote printed on burlap - CLICK HERE to go to that post.
For the Halloween blocks, I used a batty dictionary page for my background that I found on Graphics Fairy. I tinted it orange on my iphoto program. The words "trick" and "treat" were printed out using the font "Pieces of Eight". The word "or" is printed out using the font, "Rage".
After printing out the sheets, I cut the paper to fit each block, I stamped some scrolls randomly on the paper, and I inked the edges with black. I tacked the paper on the blocks with black upholstery tacks.
I got the idea for these blocks from the Horton's of Tipton site. I cannot find that exact post now to link to that - but I suggest you check out this site as it has some amazing stuff.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Stacy! I printed a dictionary page from the Graphics Fairy. I tinted it orange on my iphoto program (although you could print it out on orange paper). The scrolls are a stamp. The link to the dictionary page is in the post. Good luck!!Delete

Hi! I used scrap wood that I collected at a building site (with permission from the builders). I did not cut them, I just used the sizes that worked. These are the dimensions 8x9 (scrap from a 2x8); 6x9 (scrap from a 2x6); 6x 6 1/4 (scrap from a 2x6). I hope this helps you!Delete
