I have been meaning to make these Halloween/Thanksgiving blocks for the last few years. I was going to do a separate block for each letter but didn't want to cut all that wood. I had these pieces already in my garage so I just had to do a little sanding. I spray painted each black. I mod podged paper on them. I used glitter mod podge and I think it added a cute little shine. I cut the letters out with vinyl and stuck them on. The Happy Halloween and Happy Thanksgiving are the same blocks but different sides.
