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.’
Potion Bottle Halloween Blocks
Gather These Supplies
- Mod Podge Matte
- Folk Art Acrylic Paint – Azure Blue
- 2×4 wood pieces (15 inches)
- Miter saw or hand saw
- Newspaper or scrapbook paper with print
- Blue scrapbook paper with designs
- 1 1/16” Finial Dowel Caps – 4
- Blue acrylic gems – 4
- Black tulle
- Black distress ink
- Hot glue
- Paint brush
- Cosmetic wedge
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.
Use Mod Podge to glue the letters onto the front of each block. Allow to dry.
Adhere papers with Mod Podge Matte, smoothing out all of the bubbles with your hands. Allow to dry.
Sand the edges of each of your Halloween blocks, sanding “off” some of the paper to give a distressed look. Sand dowel caps the to give an aged look. Then distress the edges of each block using black distress ink and cosmetic wedge.
Seal each block with a coat of Mod Podge. Allow to dry.
