Okay so I went to my mom's the other day and she had just bought blocks that said HARVEST on them. I loved them but I told her she could have made them for cheaper, so I decided to make some. Supplies needed are:
Seven different size blocks. I used:
1: 5.5"x 4.5"
3: 3.5" x 3.5 "
3: 4.5" x 3.5 "
Different Fall color papers
Brown Vinyl or Paint
Wood Stain, I used Special Maple from the Home Depot: $7.95 (The only thing I didn't have, I only used like 1/200th of it.)
Stain the different size blocks and follow the directions for the stain process. Mine were follow the grain of the wood with the brush and let sit for 5-15 minutes then wipe with an old cloth. I only did one coat and I thought it looked gorgeous.
Pick your different colors of fall paper. I was wishing by the end that my purple was a yellow but I still like it. Cut them 1/4" smaller on all sides then your block.
Modge podge them on top of the blocks and scrap the paper so that you don't end up with bubbled paper.
