How many days until Halloween, you ask?
Oh well let me just take at a peak at my new handy Halloween countdown ...
Yup, 21 days!
I've seen countdown blocks everywhere and I just love them!
I wanted some of my own ...
but I didn't have any square wood scraps and I didn't feel like sewing adorable ones like these!
So when I saw these at the Dollar Store ...
I knew they were perfect!!
Yup - I used Floral Foam Blocks for $1 each!
I picked up some Halloween scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby ...
I cut out 12 squares the size of the sides
and mod podged them on all 6 sides of each block.
*TIP: I would try Hot Glue or Gorilla Glue - the Mod podge was frustrating to work with on this project due to the texture of the foam block.
I'm Lazy and since I don't have a Silhouette YET
(hint hint MOM or TARZAN)
I just bought some numbers from the Hardware section at Wamart for $1.74!
I stuck them on my Mod-Podged Blocks ...
and Voila! :)
Now you have countdown blocks that cost less than $4.00 and took about 30 minutes of your time! Not Bad!
They are sitting pretty on my Mantle -
with all the other Halloween pretties ...
just waiting for the 31st!! :)
