Fall Mini Stacker (Fablifyit Series)

I'm so late in posting this, but I just finished this craft up and had to share with you! Melissa from Fabliyfit sent this little project to me and asked me to have it done by last Wednesday. However on Labor Day I ended up in the ER with back pain so bad I couldn't move, so that didn't leave a whole lot of time for crafting...

I'm mobile again and back at my crafting now and so I decided to do this little project! I'm starting to bring out my fall decorations and this will fit right in. This little fall stacker is too cute! Last week you'll remember we did these adorable little pumpkins, and this week was this stacker. She sent me the wood and vinyl and the rest was left to my imagination.

Can you believe I've never owned a glue gun before? Well I decided to take the plunge at Walmart and buy myself one...and on this project I'm sure glad I did. It came in really handy!

I painted the little blocks and added the vinyl, but it looked a little drab to me. So then I started looking around for other things I could add to it. I didn't want to add ribbon or raffia, cause that's just not how I roll. I spotted some leaves from a garland that were starting to fall apart, and I snagged a couple of them and added to the ends. Then I grabbed the little foam pumpkins from another little wreath glued them on.

After I had all the pieces painted, glued, mod podged (over the vinyl letters to seal it up) and ready to go, I hot glued all three little pieces together. Then I dabbed on some more hot glue to keep the leaves where I wanted them, and viola!
I think they're super cute, and will add the right touch to my fall decor this year! You can go check out the kits for yourself by clicking on over to Melissa's store!
