Spooky Fall Decor

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friend. and Thanks for Stopping In Today!
Today I will be sharing a FUN Fall Decor piece that I made for my studio desk.......Check this out.....
This little project started because I had made a little paper pumpkin (pictured above) that had Orange - Black - Green - and Purple in it and I wanted something small to go along with it for my studio.  I just couldn't find anything to go along with it....so I thought....I'll make some Halloween blocks.........
I started out hunting for some small children building blocks and NOBODY had any that were small enough and that weren't going to cost me an arm and a leg.  That's when it came to me.....I had a box that was stuffed full of Stampin' UP! wood blocks (in all sizes I might add)....and I just grabbed through that box and found enough in the same sizes to create ....... "BOO"........
and......."EEK".........
And here is the paper pumpkin that started this fun little project.  I also painted up a few extra sets of blocks to add just one more element of fun to this project.......
All I did was grab my acrylic paints in Purple.....Orange......and Green and painted the wood blocks with a couple coats of paint.  I set the blocks aside to dry and then came back in and distressed all the edges of the blocks.  I then turned to my trusty Cricut machine and using heavy weight chipboard and began cutting out different letters and painting those with the same colors I used for the blocks.
This whole project came together so quickly.......
I also added some SU dimensionals to the back of each of the letters to add a little bit of dimension and fun to each of the letters......
And it all started out with this fun little scarecrow man and paper pumpkin........
I'm thinking that this little project might be a fun little thing to do for each of the holidays.....Lordy knows I have enough of the wood blocks in my garage to do this ......... but for now......I'm going to have to put it on my ever growing "To Do" list and hope that someday I'm able to share those creations with you.

Thanks for joining me today....I'll be back tomorrow to share an Anniversary card that my BFF made for me........Totally going to blow you away!

Keep Living Your Dream!
