Halloween Mod Podge Blocks

This is a project I just finished with and this is so easy... anyone could do it.  Seriously.. ANYONE!!

You are going to be using mod podge with blocks to create different words for decorating.  Let me tell you, once you get this down the possibilities are endless for the things you could say with these blocks.  

First things first... What will you need?

-Wooden blocks (any size)
-Paint (any color) For this I used white and black
-Mod podge
-Letters to spell HALLOWEEN (or anything you might be spelling)


First:
 You should start with white paint and paint a coat all over all of your blocks.



Second:

Take your black paint and paint over the white painted blocks like so.



This is the paint I used below.  The white paint is what I had in the garage.  The black paint is something I found at Lowes.  They have all sorts of colors in these little cans like this and they are fairly cheap.


Third:

Okay once all of your blocks are painted and they have all dried then it is time to start mod podging your letters onto the blocks.  
So you need some letters.  I found these on the internet and they just printed off really easy.  But you could use sticker letters that are really big too and this would save money on using all of your ink from your printer. 


Get your mod podge and put a little of it on a paper plate so you can dip your paint brush in it.  




Fourth:

Then put a layer of mod podge over the block on all sides of the block.  You will need to let one side dry and then put mod podge on the other side.  It will look like this below when you are painting the mod podge on there.  It will dry clear and smooth.











Once all of your letters had dried onto the blocks then you are done.  Pretty easy huh?  


Now you can stick these anywhere and use them for decoration.  I LOVE my blocks and I will be making some more very soon.  Check back to see what those look like.

These are really cute and I like how you used different sizes of blocks. I did something similar for my dad for Father's Day. Here's the link in case you're looking for more ways to use up scrap wood. :)
