SPRING Wood Blocks

I am totally in love with how my Wood Easter Blocks turned out – see those here that I made another set to spell out Spring.  These trendy blocks with messages are very popular right now….in crafting and home decorating.   I love how versatile these block sayings and phrases can be.  Depending on your supplies – the only limit is your imagination.

Supplies:

– mini wood plaques

– paint

– scrapbook paper

– embellishments (buttons, ribbon, ric rack, flowers, bling)

– wood glue

1. To start I painted each mini wood plaque an ivory color. Shading the edges with watered down brown paint.

2. I used tracing paper to make a pattern of each middle of the plaque and then transferred that onto scrapbook paper and cut out the shapes. I then glued the paper onto each plaque with the wood glue.  Use a squeegee or brayer to get any bubbles or extra glue off that may seep out the edges.

3.  The letters are cut from Alphalicious cricut cartridge.  I used my Gypsy to design the letters and made some a little smaller, longer or stretched out.  I then cut everything on my Cricut.  I used glue and mod podge to attach to blocks.

4. I had my hubby cut small blocks of wood that I attached to the back of each plaque that would make it sit evenly.  I attached the blocks with wood glue.

5.  I then embellished each block by adding bling, ribbon, flowers, buttons, ric rack etc.
