Halloween Blocks – DIY Holiday Home Decor


You will need: a 2×4 wooden board, about 2 feet long for 5 letters; black craft paint; Mod Podge; 2 foam paint brushes; black letters to spell your Halloween word of choice; several patterns of Halloween scrapbooking paper; embellishments and ribbon


After you have cut your wooden board into random lengths (these range from 4 1/2 inches to 2 inches), paint the entire block black.


Trace your blocks onto the Halloween scrapbooking paper and cut out.


These letters were made using a Cricut machine. Or you can use any other black paper letters. Mod Podge only the backside of the paper and stick it to the front of the block.


If you are applying any embellishments to your letters, attach the embellishment to the letter first, then Mod Podge the back of your letters. Or you can use another adhesive, if you prefer.


Tie coordinating ribbon onto a few of the blocks to finish them off.

I love that these can be adapted to any holiday or special occasion – SO cute!

    How smart. I guess you could use this idea for spelling other things like your last name or “love” or “smile”, etc. Thanks.
