When I went back through my posts, I couldn't believe that I had never posted about my Trick or Treat blocks! I have been making these for a couple of years and I love them. It started when my sister had some left over 2X2 posts from building her new deck. I knew I could do something with them, so these blocks were born. First I cut them to size, used the router on the edges to give them a "face", and did a three step paint treatment using crackle medium. Then I printed the letters off my computer, hand cut them out and mod podged them on. I actually used mod podge all over the block to give them a glossy finish. I decided the blocks looked kind of plain, so I started making the figurines to go on them. They are sculpted by hand out of polymer clay and then I actually used mod podge on them as well, for that same glossy finish.
Here are some closer views:
Just right for a not-so-spooky Halloween decoration. ;)
