Use leftover scrap wood to make these fun Halloween blocks that look like potion bottles! You'll use scrapbook paper and Mod Podge to decorate.

Do you have any leftover pieces of 2 x 4? If not, you can get them from your local home improvement store or dig for scraps at a construction site, because it’s time to make a cute Halloween project – these potion bottle “BOO” Halloween blocks!

You can make them with any saying of your choice, but “BOO” is kinda nice just because it’s a little shorter, so you only need a few blocks. Here’s the tutorial, so get craftin.’

Draw BOO! Letters onto back of remaining blue scrapbook paper, making sure they are a size that fits onto each block with at least a ½” width. (Note: the “B” should be slightly larger as it will be for the largest block); cut out the letters.
