Give Thanks Pumpkin Blocks

Try these quick and easy "Give Thanks" pumpkin blocks - a great project for your mantle or a centerpiece for your holiday table. Be creative and think of other messages you could place on the remaining three sides of each block to make this home décor piece even more versatile! This project was quick and easy to put together in under 30 minutes, so you can make several sets in an afternoon to give to friends and family in gratitude. Happy Thanksgiving!

Paint your wood blocks with different colors of craft paints, adding a second coat if necessary. Once dry, apply a heavy coat of crackle medium to each painted block and let dry.

Once the crackle medium has dried, brush a 50/50 blend of brown paint and water over the cracks. Wipe any excess paint away with damp paper towel or baby wipe and set aside to dry.

Position your Joy embroidered letters to spell out "Give Thanks" on each block.

Following the package directions, iron the Joy letters onto the blocks. I use a small craft iron because it gives me better control, plus craft irons don't have steam holes, which makes for move even heat and adhesion.

Glue short pieces of a tree branch to the top center of each block, then glue a short length of knotted green ribbon to the front of the stem as the leaves.

JOY iron-on embroidered letters can be found at your local craft store. They are available in different sizes, fonts and colors, including letters which can be dyed with markers, sprays, etc.
