Okay...now go back a couple of weeks when I told you that I found a super cute Halloween decoration at a local boutique called, Designer Blvd. I wish I would have snapped a picture with my phone, but I did not even think about it at the time. Anyhoo, it was basically blocks of wood that spelled out "Halloween"...the price tag, $70. WHAT?! Well, you know me (or maybe you don't), my first thought after experiencing sticker shock was, "that would be super simple to make!". Since I didn't even have to take a picture of the item I was going to be
Whatcha' think...pretty cute, huh? (Sorry about the quality of that second picture, don't know what was going on there). Trust me when I say, these pieces of wood have a very "primitive" look...they are not perfectly straight, but I thought that added to the character (yep, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!)
When I tell you what this cost to make, you will probably fall off your chair (keep in mind that $70 price tag!). The wood was less than $3, for a piece that I was able to cut 17 blocks of wood. I already had all of the paper from my scrapbooking/card making days, but we all know how cheap that is! Paint was about $3 and I already had the Perfect Paper Adhesive (you could use Mod Podge or any white glue for that matter!) So, whatcha' think now...even better, huh?
