Crafty Secrets "BOO" Blocks

I have been having a bunch of fun making my own 
Halloween decorations this year!!
I put more Fall decor out then Halloween and usually
just 2 weeks before Halloween, right after Oct 14th
I just add a few pieces here and there....
now I have my own hand created items to add in the mix!

I do love the 'vintage" look of Halloween the most....
the old trims, glitter and the "vintage images"....
That's where my wonderful  Crafty Secrets products come in to play.


I printed all my Halloween papers from the 
the CD is loaded with designs, making it hard to decide what to use!!


I had 3 paper mache little blocks that I covered with the papers....
I also used a few images from Vintage Scraps Halloween Greetings


After covering the boxes with the papers, using Modge Podge,
I inked all the edges giving it an even more vintage look!!


I had the "BOO" letters in my stash for several years, and they fit
perfectly on each block.
I added a few of my fussy cut images here and there around the blocks.


I got into my Halloween bin and lucky me, the little dollar store skeleton was sitting
right on top...I hot glued him to the top block!!

I don't do Halloween, but if I did, this would be a marvelous project to display. LOve the configuration and our paper choices. Very nicely crafted and aesthetically pleasing. Thanks for leaving this on our front porch here at 613 Avenue Create. It was a delightful find.
