I know spring is kind of far off, but for Craft Night this month we made some Spring Blocks. I love how they turned out!
Here is the tutorial!
6 wood blocks, differing in sizes.
6 coordinating pieces of scrapbook paper
2 sheets of lighter color scrapbook paper for your letters. I just used white.
Step 1: Cut out your blocks and sand them.
S: 9 x 5 1/2″
P: 6 x 3 1/2″
R: 7 x 5 1/2″
I: 3 1/4 x 4″
N: 5 x 3 1/2″
G: 4 1/2 x 3 1 /4″
Step 2: Paint your blocks. For these blocks I used antique white. I like it because it isn’t stark white and it has a little bit of a yellow undertone.
Step 3: While your blocks are drying, cut out your paper to fit the size of each of your blocks.
these are the sizes of paper for my blocks
Step 4: After your blocks are dry, apply a thin layer of mod podge to the FRONT of your blocks and apply your paper. Make sure you flatten it out really well so you don’t get any bubbles.
Step 5: While your mod podge is drying, cut out your letters. These are the sizes I used. The font is Alphalicious (cricut machine)
S: 5 3/4″
P: 3 3/4″
R: 6 3/4″
Step 6: Mod podge your letters on the front of your blocks.
Step 7: Add any embellishments and ribbon that you like! If you want to make paper flowers you can find my tutorial here.
I hope you like it! here are some of the ladies making their blocks!
