I don’t have a lot of spring decor, so this year I’ve been adding to my collection (much to my husband’s chagrin).
I was inspired by a set of blocks that I found on Pinterest by Not So Idle Hands and wanted to make some like it for myself. I hosted a ladies’ craft night a few days ago so a few of my friends could make some too. We had a great time chatting, laughing and creating.
This is one of those projects that is quick and pretty much impossible to mess up. If you make this in a group, it’s a very inexpensive craft! You could also be super thrifty if you want and paint the backs of the blocks different colors and apply the letters for “SUMMER”. Then you could just turn them around for the next season! It works out perfectly!
- Cut 6 pieces of wood measuring 5.5″ x 3.25″. Or just buy a 2×4 at Home Depot and they will do your cuts for free. 🙂
- Sand and paint your wood. Let dry and then sand around the edges of the blocks, if you want, to add a decorative touch.
- (Optional): Cut paper to be slightly smaller than the size of your blocks if you want the paint color to show around the edges. Using Mod Podge, adhere paper to the faces of the blocks.
- Apply vinyl or chipboard letters. I cut my letters out on my Silhouette using the “CAC One Seventy” font. My letter sizes were 5″ x 2.5″.
- Mod Podge over the top to add a protective layer, if you like.
