Photo Blocks

Yeah!!!  Valentine's is over.  

Moving on...  if you are looking for a cute and easy "just because" project, I've got one for you.

Photo Blocks!


Not really a new concepts but they are fun to make, look super cute on a shelf and are easy to whip up.
Here's how:



Gather your supplies.  You'll need:  A piece of wood, mine was 1x4inches.  Paint, Paint brush, Mod Podge, and a cute photo.  You might want sand paper, distressing ink and some rub-ons, too.


Step 1:  Paint the edges of your wooden block and let dry

Step 2:  Trim photo to correct size so that it is the same size as one face of your block.

Step 3:  Add Mod Podge to the flat surface of your wood block and before it dries, adhere photo in place.  Let dry.

Step 4:  Sand edges or distress with ink

Step 5:  Add a rub-on message and display on shelf.


See!  Told you it was easy.

Enjoy!
