It may be winter-ish outside, but you can brighten up your house with fun spring decor!! There are lots of ways to make these holiday blocks, here is my version. I just bought a 2x6 at Home Depot and cut it into blocks. I painted the blocks white, found scrapbook paper I loved and mod-podged them on. (apparently, this is quite the delicate art. On the first blocks I made, the paper became really bumpy and looked horrible after I used the mod-podge!!) I guess you just do a little at a time.
I cut out some letters and 'podged them on too. Note: I do not have a Cricut or any of those fancy tools. This is just my cardstock paper, pencil and handy ol' scissors. Talk about skills, right!? I just found a font I liked and did my best to freehand. Don't look too close...
Embelish with ribbon, buttons, flowers, etc. A little distressing ink around the edges would look great too!
(Oh, and by the way, I used the other side of the blocks for a different season! How's that for thrifty?)
What are your favorite spring projects?
These are simple and easy to make.
I'm thinking they would make a fun hostess gift or spruce up
your own Easter table!
