Happy Wednesday! When we last were together I had sanded and painted some wooden blocks. I'm sure it has been eating away at your soul over the past week wondering what I was going to turn those cute little blocks into. Well wait no more! The next steps for these blocks took only a few more supplies:
- Mod Podge (this stuff is amazing glue and sealer all in one. I would highly recommend you get some)
- MONO Multi Liquid Glue (or any liquid glue that will effectively adhere paper to wood without damaging the paper, but my vote is with MONO. Google it, its good stuff!)
- Patterned Paper (preferably with pages that have cute little phrases on them!)
- Super Glue
- Various decorations (ribbon, buttons, stickers etc.)
The first step was going through my patterned paper and finding all of the adorable phrases that would fit on the block sizes that I had. If you don't have paper like this, you could also easily find some phrases online and print them out on cardstock! I cut the paper down and used my MONO glue to adhere it to the wood. Once this dried, I went over the whole front of the block with about 2 coats of Mod Podge to seal everything in. I then added little decorations such as ribbon, sparkles, and buttons where appropriate! And now these old wooden blocks have been turned into cute little signs! Not to toot my own horn but I think they came out great!
Here they are! I tried to make the images come up as a slideshow and be more aesthetically pleasing but alas I could not so enjoy this long string of differently sized photos!! I'm not an expert blogger yet so take pity on my lack of skills please...
I am so happy with how these came out! My favorite is the "Sunny Days" block! These blocks are about 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 inches thick so they are easily able to stand up on their own like so:
I hope the suspense was worth it and you liked this craft! I may even make a few more ;)
P.S. Next week I have a special surprise! Check back next Wednesday!
