 Halloween Treat Blocks
       by Merrilynne Harrington
10/02/2009 
 
How do you spell "trick-or-treat?" With festive, embellished blocks! These charming blocks are easy to make. Use them to adorn your Halloween table or buffet!

All of LD's color images are created at 300 dpi, which means you can easily size many of our images to fit an 8 1/2 x 11 printer and still have fabulous results. Read on for a supply list and instructions.

Project features products from the Haunted Halloween Collection: Haunted Halloween paper pack and Hallowscream Things graphics set. Font is LD Frightmares.

Additional supplies needed:

  • Wooden blocks, any size you choose. (Purchase at craft or hardware store).

  • Black paint and brushes

  • Modge Podge

  • Vinyl lettering, stickers or die cuts

  • Color printer

  • Ribbon and other trims

  • Hot glue gun

    Instructions:

    First, lightly sand the edges of the wooden blocks to give them a clean, finished look. Apply black paint to the edges and backs. Allow to dry, then reapply. (It will take about three coats.)

    Second, use the Lettering Delights' Try Me Now Tool to locate the graphic images in your My Library and save the files to your computer.

    Next, size and print your images. Start by measuring the area you will cover on your blocks. Print the paper to match this size then trim.

    After printing, apply Modge Podge to the blocks to adequately cover the area you will be covering. Carefully lay down the trimmed patterned papers and press out any bubbles. Allow to dry.

    Next, apply your lettering to the top of each block. I used the LD Frightmares font with my Quickutz Silhouette machine to cut vinyl. You could use stickers, stencils, die cuts or even print and trim alphabet letters. Get creative!

    After lettering is applied, add two additional top coats of Modge Podge directly on top of your blocks covering the paper and your lettering. Do this carefully so you don't smear any of the ink. You may also want to run your finger along the outer edges of the paper to make sure the sides are completely covered and pressed to the edges of the blocks.

    Finally, once all of the blocks have completely dried, embellish with images from the graphics set, ribbons and trims using a hot glue gun.
