Tutorial Tuesday: Autumn Blocks

Do you remember this post? Well I finally made my autumn/winter blocks!!

This is how I made them:
1) I took a 2x6 and 2x4 and cut them into various sizes and then painted them white
2) I then cut out scrapbook paper to fit each block
3) I then cut out the letters to spell autumn
4) Using mod podge, I put the paper and letter on each block

Here is the winter on the back of the blocks. I love them!

So I'm laughing this morning as I spent good parts of yesterday searching for the tutorial for the blocks so I could make some for Fall. I even found some cheap paper at Target in the dollar spot. I subscribed when I found your site while searching... this morning my google reader greets me with today's tutorial! God Provides :).. Thanks for sharing!

What a great idea! I wouldn't have thought to put winter on the other side. Love the whole vignette.

Love how they are double sided, I've wanted to make blocks for a long time, but really the storage issue is beginning to catch up with me. Thanks for pointing out how they have the same number of letters, good thinking! Thanks for sharing with us at A Crafty Soiree! Please join us next time too!
