2 rectangular blocks (i used my carving blocks and after the season i plan on carving them into birds)
Acrylic Paints in brown, off white, orange and gray
Liner brush and medium brush
Step 1: gather supplies and get sidetracked right off the bat by the cat playing on your table.
Step 2: paint the edges of the blocks a dark brown.
Step 3: paint over the whole block in a parchment or off white. Mine wasn't dry yet so the brown smeared into the white. If yours dried quickly you can wipe the white off here and there with a baby wipe.
Step 4: draw the words you choose on each block in pencil.
I almost wrote "give thanks" but decided on "pumpkin spice" instead. Something even more random would be fun too..."candy corn" or "crunchy leaves" or "cider and donuts"or "caramel latte".... Whatever makes you think of fall....
Step 5: paint over the words in gray with your liner brush.
Step 6: draw lines for a border with your pencil, and add orange dots or squiggles as accents.
I'll show you how I made the little green pumpkins soon.
