Fall Mantel Block Craft
Start out this project by cutting the 3 blocks of wood in the dimensions mentioned in the supply list. Paint the blocks with the tan, burnt orange, and green paints. This is when you can get creative! Use stripes, polka-dots, or shapes to decorate the blocks. After the paint dried, I used a piece of fine sandpaper to distress the edges.
Make a Fall Mantel Craft with Blocks
Paint the “F” a dark chocolate brown. Once it is dry, cover the top with Elmer’s glue and sprinkle the brown glitter over the glue. If you want a little more sparkle like the picture, use the same technique for the block “A”.
