HOME blocks

I saw some blocks similar to these at my friend's house.  We were going to get together to make some and I missed out :(.  Sooo....I tried them myself and came up with a couple different sets.  

Which one is your favorite?

Here are the specs:
* One of each block cut out of a 2x6: 6 inch, 5-1/2 inch, 5 inch and 4-1/2 inch
* Black paint
*Scrapbook pages and coordinating HOME letters cut out anyway you know how.  I for one am not lucky enough to have a Silhouette (hint, hint Silhouette company) yet, so I did it the old fashion way and cut them out myself.
*Modge podge
*Any embellishments you want to use

For the 2nd set, I used an orange paper for the letters and added a layer over top cut out with vintage sheet music found here...

Cut and sand your blocks.  Paint black.  When dry, you can distress if you want.  Cut out your background paper to fit each block and modge podge this on.  When this is completely dry, add your letters by modge podging them.  When the blocks are dry, add your embellishments.  I used wire, a small star that I used coordinating paper on, a small nobby I found at Roberts (If I did it again, I would go with a bigger nobby), some tulle tied around the block and some other weird card boardy thingys I found at Roberts and painted black.  And if you are completely lost...feel free to ask questions!  :D

If you make these, I would love to hear what you did fun, cause if you are like me, I love to add my own spin to things and end up with something totally different than what I see!
