I wanted to do a Halloween theme so I decided to bust out my power tools and cut some Halloween Blocks for decoration.
I cut the blocks in various sizes, painted them black, distressed them, Mod Podged paper to them and then embellished them with green raffia, orange gems, buttons, colored wire and stamped sentiments. Oh and I used Cricut Mini Monsters as my go-to Halloween cartridge on this project.
To add some texture, I embossed the letters with dots and added some white heat embossing powder to the skeletons.
I love raffia. I love to wrap things with raffia. I love to tie bows with raffia. I know raffia makes a big mess on the floor. I’m not sure why I’m so drawn to raffia but I love it and own it in various colors…red, black, green, brown and natural. It’s worth the mess to me.
