Altering a wood block in a Fantastic Fall kind of way >>>>>

Happy Fall my scrappy friends!  I just cannot believe that its October already!  September was way too busy, even for me!  We have a home we rent out that’s about 30 minutes from where we live now, which is fine and dandy when there’s tenant.   Ours moved out, so we decided to take that time to repaint all the bedrooms and bathrooms and of course repair damage done to the property.  Painting becomes  my job since my hubby hates it.  I really don’t mind painting, it’s all the prep work that drives me nuts and seems to take forever!  So needless to say, I’ve finally gotten some crafty time in and I’m almost done painting.  I only have one more day next week to finish it up!!

I’d like to share an altered block I created using the Memory Works  September Express Kit. The block is solid wood and was purchased from Hobby Lobby several months ago on a scratch and dent clearance section.  You could also use a piece of scrap lumber from your hubby’s workshop 🙂  It measures 6 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide on all four sides.

I’ve expressed my love for Aileen’s Tacky Glue before and I’ll do it again today.  This glue is fantastic for so many things, including adhering paper or cardstock directly to wood.   I also inked up the edges with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Vintage Photo.


Besides using the supplies packed into the Express Kit, I added a few of my favorites including May Arts Natural Burlap String.  You can find it in my Etsy Shop HERE in a 400 yard roll or 20 yards at a time!

These cute felt flowers aren’t in the Express Kit… I made them using heat-n-bond, wood felt and my Cricut!!  More on that coming soon!


Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope I’ve inspired you to create something for Fall today!  Create a piece of home decor for Fall or any season!
