In one of my perusals of the blogoshpere, I came across this adorable blog and this post which in turn led me HERE to WhimsiKel. I knew as soon as I saw it that this was a "have to do it" project. This week I finally made a set.
Here's what you'll need to make one set:
10 wooden blocks (I had mine cut at Home Depot)
black vinyl letters, black cardstock and modpodge or black paint and letter stencils (3 options there)
distress ink (optional)
So here goes! On with the project!
I LOVE SoCal and the beautiful weather! I couldn't wait to get outside and be in the sun and it's only March! :) Life is good.
Check out my cute little helpers. No dull moments in this house, no sir.
I painted my blocks (took two coats to get the look I wanted) and then sanded the corners a bit to give them a worn look. I added distress ink to the edges. It's the first time I've used it and I really love the look it gives the blocks. I cut the letters using the cricut and then modpodged them to the blocks.
I followed the Lanier Creations directions and placed the letters on the blocks like so:
Block One: H Y E D
Block Two: A C R S
Block Three: R P E T
Block Four: V N L O
Block Five: E O M D
Block Six: S M K I
Block Seven: T F B W
Block Eight: U A G L
Block Nine: P J I H
Block Ten: F P S C
Here is the finished project....
all ten blocks
I accessorized a couple of blocks not currently being used.
