Boo Blocks

This is a really easy craft project to do, you can do it in very little time and the result is total cuteness.  What you will need is:
  1. Wooden blocks, you can get these at your local craft store (we got lucky and found ours at the D.I.)
  2. Modge Podge
  3. Scrapbook Paper
  4. Sandpaper
  5. Stencils
Okay, so once you have your wooden blocks you outline the square shape onto your scrapbook paper six times, I did all six sides with different paper, but you can do yours whatever you like.  Then once you have all your shapes ready to go you pop out the modge podge.  You figure out where you are going to put the paper and you glue it down.  You repeat this three times until all three of your blocks are covered with your scrapbook paper.

Once you have that done you may have noticed that the edges on you blocks aren't perfect, that is fine, just grab some sandpaper and ruff it up on the edges so if the paper is out of place, it won't matter.  If you got your blocks perfect and you don't want to distress the edges that is fine, just skip this step.

Then we bring out the stencils.  You will need a solid color for this one if you want your letters to pop out, I just used some stencils that we had around the house, but you could even get craftier and use some font off of the computer.  Unfortunately we are out of ink, so I did it the old fashioned way.  Then you modge podge those onto your blocks where you want, play around with it and see how you like it best.  You can tilt the letters or just have them all straight.  I am sorry I forgot to do before pictures but here are my afters.

  1. Those are so cute. I love how they turned out. Doesn't it seam like if you really need something, just check the DI and more often then not you find it there or something that you can use. I love that place. Thanks for linking up to Tuesday Tell All.
