I think it's only fair that I blame my lack of posts on the first week of school. Who's with me?
I have been working on projects like crazy, and I am looking forward to sharing them with you. First, I have a Halloween version of one of my favorite things to make...the perpetual calendar / countdown block set.
I love this Halloween paper with these cutie pies all dressed up. I sanded two inch wood blocks and painted them with two coats of this wonderful orange paint.
Cutting these dudes out was a little time consuming, but absolutely worth it. My family was laughing at me as I kept track (out loud) of my witches, Frankensteins, and vampires. I guess hearing somebody say, "I need one more cowboy," sounds funny out of context.
I cut out black vinyl on my Silhouette (Rocco!) and put the numbers in the middle of each side. I used Mod Podge to decoupage the kiddos onto the blocks. I gave my blocks two more coats of Mod Podge to seal and protect them.
How cute would these be on a teacher's desk for October? The class could help count down till candy time!
