Oh, dear....but I have a 'code in my nose'!!!

School is back in session and, yes, my twins have already started bringing home the germs! 
They're all better but I'm still suffering. Just. lovely.
Before the onset of my cold, I was able to finish up some wood cutting. I was going through my 'xtras' and found a few 2x2s and some scrap mdf. I thought to myself, "What can I make with these?", and here's what I came up with!

I tore some seasonal scrapbook paper and decoupaged it on these little blocks. I added some vinyl lettering, cut from my Cricut, and tied a strip of burlap to the top. I cut the ghosts out by following along the 'already cut lines' of my scrap wood. I've got them for sale HERE in my Etsy Shop.
I'm working on a custom Halloween order and a few scarecrows and then it's CHRISTMAS all the way to the end!
Remember to sign up for our PAFA Giveaway posted at the top of my right sidebar.
I hope you're staying healthy from the 'first grader' germs!
I'll have another Giveaway in a week so make sure you stay 'TUNED IN'. You'll like what I have to really will!!!

Great use of your scraps! I have been dealing with some nasty allergies and a little cold to top it off. My daughter is in first grade too. :)

Hi Vicky,
I believe in spraying my kids down with Lysol before they even enter the house...unfortunately that doesn't always work. I am such a freak about germs!!
Great creations! Love them!
Enjoy your day and get better!
