Happy October!! Trick or Treat Block Tutorial How-To

Since today is October 1st, I got a little excited and made these cute Trick or Treat blocks. They were super easy! My friend Kara from Kara's Krafts cut the vinyl for me. She has her own website. Her prices are very reasonable!

First I found some 2 x 4 wood at my Dad's house, and cut it to the size of my vinyl.

Next, I painted each block with 2 coats of acrylic paint (I used Americana, you can get it at JoAnn's or Micheals).

I sanded the edges of each piece of wood for an antique look.

Then I added the vinyl! Sooooo EASY!

You have to try this. I have done several of these lately and I can't believe how easy it is!

Let me know what you think! I love comments.....
