giving 'thanks' August

inspired by I heart naptime w/Chocolate Sundaes post about blocks...
I wanted to try a version of my own.  
I had the husband cut some wood into 3 1/2" blocks
(he loves when my projects let him use the big tools).
I spray painted them orange. And then decided on a theme.  
Backwards, I know.  Anyhoo...I picked Thanksgiving.  
I dug around in my craft tub and found some 'fall' scrapbook paper.  
I used spray adhesive to attach the paper to the blocks.  Used Mod Podge to cover.  
I had some chipboard letters left over from a birthday banner I made.  
So all in all..this project was ~$3.00 (the cost of the wood). 
the 'h' may or may not be a 'y'...shhh, don't tell :)

I have 2 more sets in season is fast approaching :)

Haha! Spraying on a color before figuring out a theme is something I would TOTALLY do! I'm glad it worked out. It's really awesome. And I never noticed the y-h until you mentioned it. :)
