Twenty-Four Days of Thanksgiving: A little bit of Gratitude and whole lot of yummy..

Today I am grateful for Toilet Paper.. 

I am so glad I live in this century cause

I would hated not having Toilet Paper!!!

I am going to be making one of these

at Pinterest Party Next week, but I had to share

this super cute idea with you from 

Wouldn't this look cute on your fireplace mantle or table at Thanksgiving?  Below are the directions to make your own!
Supplies Needed:
4- 2×4 boards cut into the following lengths 10.5 in., 5 in., 4 in., 3 in.
Coordinating pieces of Scrapbook paper (DCWV The Green Stack used here)
Distressing ink (optional)
Modge Podge
Paint brush
Paint (Coffee Bean by Plaid used in this project)
Scissors or paper trimmer
Vinyl lettering cut into words “Faith”, “Family”, “Friends” and “We Give Thanks”
Vinyl transfer tape
Corner trimmer (optional)
Sand the block edges to remove rough areas.  Paint the blocks brown and allow to dry.
 Cut scrapbook paper to fit the blocks.  Trim the paper slightly smaller than the wood (use corner trimmer to round edges of paper, optional).

Apply scrapbook paper to blocks using a thin layer of Modge Podge and allow to dry.  Lightly sand the ends of the paper to make it look worn and even with the blocks.
 Use the distressing ink on the paper to give it an antique look (optional).
Now it is time for the fun part!  Adding the vinyl letters!  Separate the vinyl letters from the backing.

Apply the vinyl lettering to blocks using the vinyl transfer tape (follow manufactures directions for your vinyl transfer tape.)
 Seal the blocks with another thin coat of Modge Podge, allow to dry and your project is complete!
Let’s get one more look at the finished project!  So cute!
