RRR altered block tutorial
It is officially Fall now and I am guilt free in posting fall and spooky projects to my heart's content. I have been hoarding a few wood blocks and decided to play around with one. I love the old primitive ones from the good ole days with the sweet nostalgic images. The ones I have are solid wood and quite heavy. I painted it and sanded the edges a bit. I than grabbed some fun embellishments and some yummy RRR ribbon and started embellishing the block.
I wrapped my burlap ribbon in black around the whole block and hot glued it down. I added vintage style images to both sides and than made my bow for the top. I covered some chipboard frames with papers and added them to the images. Of course my top was way to plain jane so I added more ribbons for fullness. I used seam binding ribbons that I crickled and aged with distress ink. I also added a chipboard stamped tag wound with Halloween's bakers twine. A few more little goodies...buttons, a droopy houndstooth daisy, and some diecuts and I was done...almost. I sprinkled the block all over with some mica flakes. It kinda turned out vintagey...but primitive. I love that combination and can't wait to set it out on our new kitchen counters with some berries. Hope you enjoy! hugs, cherry
