Fall Words Mini Stacker
This week's challenge was a really quick and easy one. It is a cute mini stacker that uses fall words. Here's how I decided to do mine.
(You can buy the kit that includes the wood and vinyl for $4.50, or you can buy a completed kit for $9.00)
First, I painted the blocks different colors. I wanted a sort of an ombre look to it, so I went with two shades of orange and a yellow. After the blocks were painted, I added the vinyl to the blocks. I decided I would rather use the vinyl like a stencil than keep it on the block, so I took the blocks outside and covered them with a layer of brown spray paint. Once they were dry, I peeled the vinyl letters off leaving my ombre letters. Last, I used some sand paper to expose the colors that were under the brown paint. I also ran the sand paper across the letters as well to give them a little more of an aged look.
You can leave your blocks just like that, or you can do like I did and wrap some twine around all the blocks and add a leaf and berries.
These are the perfect gift for a friend or just to use in your own fall decor. If you would like a chance to win one of your own, head over to Fablifyit and enter the giveaway there. There will be several kits given away, so you will have plenty of chances to win! Good luck!
