Here is another one! This is also a “stacker.” Did I mention how much I like working with wood?
This one is easy & so inexpensive to make. I am using 2X2’s, craft supplies (I had here on hand) and some stain. That’s it!
- 2X2 wood
- dark stain
- scrap-booking paper
- Mod Podge or Elmer’s glue
- paint & paint brush
First cut your 3 pieces of wood.
- Bottom: 12 inches long
- Middle: 9 inches long
- Top: 6 inches long
After you cut them, knock off the rough edges with some sandpaper.
Stain the entire surface of all 3 pieces of wood. Wipe off any excess stain & let dry. Once the stain has dried cut some scrap-booking paper of your choice to correct size and glue it onto the front of each block.
After the paper dries I rub some of the dark stain on the edges of the scrap-booking paper to make it look old fashioned.
Next, paint the letters onto the blocks. I just free-handed mine. If you happen to have a vinyl cutter – it would come in really handy for all these letters! I don’t, so I paint mine.
After painting on the letters in white, I went back over them and accented with black.
Last, I painted on a couple of little asterisk star-thingy’s to add some pizzazz. Paint a coat of Mod Podge or Elmer’s glue over the fronts and you are done!
Festive, jolly, fun! Perfect Homemade Christmas Gift!
