White and Silver Fall Wood Blocks

Share this post

This week I brought up my boxes of fall and Hallowen decorations.  Along with those decorations came costumes, which made for a very entertaining Tuesday.  Little Lady tried on every costume she could fit into while walking around with leaves and pinecones “decorating”.  Amidst this little show I did manage to get a start my fall mantle.  This year I decided to go white and bright, with a little shimmer.

I started with a 1×4 and cut 4 squares (roughly 3.5 inches each)

I sanded them smooth then painted the front with white and the sides with silver.

For the lettering I used my Silhouette to cut the word Fall out of shiny silver vinyl.

When using vinyl my little trick to placing it perfectly lies in Contact paper.

I weeded the vinyl then picked up my letter and transferred it to the wood and placed it exactly where I wanted it.  I smoothed out all the bubbles then peeled back the Contact paper.  Perfection every time.

I love the non traditional look of white and silver for fall.

This is just half of my mantle, the other half has more sparkle and white in the making.
