I made these using 2x4's, scrapbook paper, mod podge, and sandpaper. It was super easy, totally free and way cute. I love decorating for Valentines Day. It is so much fun and I want to keep my decorations up all year, maybe I'll move some to my red and black bedroom?....maybe.
First I started by cutting the 2x4's. Mine were 2- 6 inch blocks, a 4 1/2 inch piece and a 7 inch piece. I sanded them down and then painted them black (next picture).
I put mod podge on the blocks and put the scrapbook paper on top....then you just wait for them to dry and sand off the paper.
They will look like this at this point. I then put vinyl on them to spell out love, you could do xoxo if you want or really any saying if you wanted to add more blocks.
I added a white ribbon to the first block to make it more complete but I love it either way. What do you think? Do you like how they turned out?
