Autumn Blocks

While reading my daily blogs I came across this post. I saw a picture of some blocks in a picture and knew I wanted to make something similar. Chuck cut me three 2x3 blocks and three 2x2 blocks out of scrap wood. I then painted them orange and added fall scrapbook paper using homemade hodge podge.  It works great!

I used scrapbook stickers for the lettering.  Once that was done I rubbed on and immediately wiped off some stain.  It is subtle but it really toned down the orange.  Next I hot glued sticks on the shorter blocks for stems and then tied twine around the "stem."

I am very happy with the way they turned out. I can't wait to find a spot for them this weekend.

May your day be filled with joy and contentment!


  1. Oh so cute! You are so creative! :) Have a fab. day!

  2. Wendi, those are so sweet! you did a great job. The little stems and staining are the perfect finishing touches.
    I also like that they should not take up much room when you pack them away after this season.

  3. Oh yours turned out so cute, Wendi! Great job! I love them! Glad to hear the homemade modge podge works!

  7. This looks great!! I really like it. I think fall decorations are my favorite after Christmas of course. I put the recipe for oatmeal pie on my blog under desserts. Thanks for asking for the recipe. If you make it, let me know if you like it. It is a favorite around here. Enjoy your day and God bless.
