Boo Blocks

Try saying that five times fast!  This is my favorite project for this year.  I love Halloween decor and this set of blocks is going to be a perfect addition to my work area.

 You'll find a set of 4 Decor Elements Blocks in the Holiday Mini Catalog for just $9.95.  The blocks are smooth MDF, natural wood, 3" blocks which require no sanding.

I decided to paint the blocks with white acrylic paint.  It took 3-4 coats of paint to achieve the look that I wanted.  I cut my Night & Day designer series paper into 3" squares and adhered it to the blocks with Modge Podge.

The cirlces and letters were die cut using the Big Shot, Circles # 2 die, and the Serif Essentials Alphabet dies.  The ghost image is from the Twick or Tweet stamp set, also in the Holiday Mini Catalog. 

And to tie it all together, I used the 1-1/4" Striped Pumpkin Pie ribbon.  The blocks can be displayed side-by-side, or if you have limited space, you can stack them.

But blocks have a little secret.  If you flip them over, you'll see that I have decorated the other side for Christmas!  I used the Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper and the Holiday Mix Decor Elements.  The snowflakes were punched from cardstock and I added rhinestones to the center of each flake.  (Tip:  pry apart a rhinestone brad from the back to release a flat rhinestone.  Adhere to your project with a mini glue dot)




The Holiday Mix Decor Elements come in 4 colors:  Black, Chocolate, Real Red, and White.  This is only the first project I'll be sharing with you that features this item.  Be sure to add it to your next order.  For only $9.95, you'll be able to create many adorable holiday projects.

Back to Halloween tomorrow with a project from My Digital Studio.
