Decorative Blocks


I have been seeing these on Pintrest and thought I would give it a try.

I had a 2×4 already cut into pieces so I only needed to sand them. I used a single coat of blue craft paint. Next time i want to buy a black satin for the base coat.

I cut scrapbook paper to be 2 inch less than the size of the block and decoupaged it on. I sealed the entire block with 2 coats.

The letters were cardboard die cuts I picked up several years ago. I think it adds dimension.

It took longer for the paint and glue to dry than to put it together.


I will post more sets as I make them
