Boo To You - Halloween Block

I'm a little behind getting ready for Halloween, but I have a really good excuse! Here is my first Halloween project for the year. It was easy to make and I already had the supplies on hand.
I started by gluing a wood knob onto a wood block and painting it all orange.
To distress the block, I took a black ink pad and rubbed it over the edges and lightly over the middle.
Then, I applied my vinyl and sprayed it with a protective finish to keep the ink from smearing. Finally, I tied some raffia and wire around the knob.
I love projects that are quick and simple to make!
Come back later for the free digital file to create your own.

I've got everything I need to whip this up. I finished making the Halloween road sign yesterday. It turned out fabulously! Thank you! Instead of nailing the signs to the post, I used magnets so I could remove them for easier storing after the holiday.
