These spooky blocks are a hit!! Here's how they were made.

Countdown to Halloween
Numbers are cut 2 inches tall using the SHADOW font in the Plantin Schoolbook Alphabet. Characters are made using the mini monsters Cricut cartridge 3 inches. Bats are punched with the Bat punch from stampin up. DSP is witches brew. I used  a 2x4 to cut the base 8 inches long. Blocks are cut using a 4x4 (which is really 3.50x3.50) cut at 3.50 inches. You will need several coats of modge podge to adhere paper, let each coat dry completely. ADORABLE!!!! Mini monsters can be cut in any color combination you like.
Numbers cut in pumpkin are 1-2-8-3-5-0-2 /2  inches
Numbers cut in black are 1-4-7-0-6 /2 inches
