HOME Blocks

  Here’s my latest addition to my Etsy Shop.  A pretty set of HOME blocks done in black and purple.  They’ve been cut from 3/4″ pine at 4″ tall, and have been painted black.  A pretty purple floral print cardstock was mod podged on, and black cardstock letters on top of that.  Everything was sealed with the mod podge, then finished with a water-based clear coat.  Pretty flowers were stuck onto the corner with a decorative nail tack, and black ribbon with white polka dots was also added on.  This would be a pretty set in an entryway to welcome...

Chalkboard Christmas Countdown Blocks

I ordered some chalkboard vinyl ages ago, and have never done anything with it.  I decided to finally make a set of Christmas countdown blocks with it.  I cut two squares out of a 2×4, measuring 3.5″ high and wide, then I cut a 2 x 2 at 7″ long.  I painted my square blocks red, and the bottom block green, and added some Christmas themed papers to each.  The bottom is just red cardstock, embossed with little dots.  I like to keep anything that’s going to have writing on fairly solid, so the words are easy to read. I then cut my chalkboard...

HOME Blocks

I felt like getting crafty today with all my unfinished wood, so I decided to make a set of HOME blocks.  I used 1 x 4 pine wood, cut into 4 inch tall blocks, and set them on a 2 x 2 square piece of pine cut at 14 inches long.  I picked out some mostly teal, black and grey patterned scrapbook papers for my background, and used grey cardstock for the lettering.  I cut the letters out with my handy dandy Cricut machine and mod podged everything on.  After clear coating all the blocks, I decorated them with some paper flowers, ribbon, and gems.  I’m really happy...

Chalkboard Blocks

Crafty Canada is now making chalkboard blocks!  They’re 4 1/4″H x 3 1/2″W, and are so versatile.  You can put them together to make words or names, use them separately for writing notes or recipes, or they could be used for table numbers at a wedding or other function.  These cute little blocks can also be decorated according to season.  I like to use sticky tabs on my flowers to stick them on, rather than nailing the flowers on, that way the flower colors can be changed for fall, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. My niece...

Valentine’s Day Photo Blocks

I wanted to make a little something for Valentine’s Day, and I keep seeing these amazing photo blocks everywhere, so I had to try making a set for myself.  Mine are pretty basic, and the first photo set I’ve done, but I love how easy they are to make! I used some 2×4 wood that I cut into blocks, painted them with some brown acrylic paint, and mod podged my pre-cut photos onto them.  I did a little distressing around the edges of the wood before sticking on my pictures, and I used a rounded corner punch on my pics as well.  I bought a cheap rolling pin...
