BOO blocks

I got these old wooden blocks at a flea market last year sometime and I decided I would alter them with my Halloween Crafty Secrets Image and Journal Notes Booklet. There are some super cute images in it and I had fun picking them out for the blocks! I spray painted the blocks black and then I covered them with the images. See the bat coming out of the chimney? I got that from a house that Vicki Chrisman made awhile back, it's so cute! I punched the bat with my Martha Stewart bat punch then I glued it up and dipped it in black glitter. I took some black wire, glued it to the bat and wrapped it around the chimney. The papers on the roofs are from the Radiant & Earthy Paper Pads, 2 of the papers were black & white so I colored them with an orange Copic marker to make them orange & black. The BOO is chipboard letters that I colored with a black Copic, glued them up and sprinkled black chunky glitter on them from SU!
Here they are at a different angle.
