I wanted to share another little Halloween craft that I made the other day. It was inspired by something I saw at Domestic Bliss, a gorgeous yet overpriced boutique near me. These little babies probably cost like $50 over there, but they cost me less than $5 to make. I went down to Home Depot and bought a board. The whole board was around $4. They wouldn't cut smaller than 12 inch pieces, so I brought it home and used my jigsaw to cut pieces the lengths I wanted. (totally eyeball it, it does NOT need to be precise) I bought 3 pieces of scrapbook paper, which cost a total of $1.79 or something like that. I then printed out the words "Trick Or Treat" and cut them out with an exacto. This is the hard way. The easy way would be to just print the silly words onto the scrapbook paper. I was afraid I wouldn't have enough paper to cover the blocks front and back, so I did it the hard way. Whatever. It worked! I painted the sides of the blocks black, then mod podged the paper on. Then I mod podged the words on. Voila! They are SUPER CUTE and way cheap. I think I will do a modified version for Christmas. Maybe even Thanksgiving. There is enough board left to make several...hmmmmm I'll have to think about it.
BTW, the font was a free font download and the name is Zothique. Love it!!
