Do you love my new craft? I recently made one that said Merry Christmas and promised a tutorial so here it is. First cut you wood to these measurements.
2- 6 inch pieces
2-5 inch pieces
1-4.5 inch piece
1-4 inch piece
1-14 inch piece
You will also need:
wood stain finish (I used a walnut finish)
Coordinating scrapbook paper
Ink Pad (for distressing if desired)
Vinyl or Paper letters
First cut your wood the desired lengths. The order goes 6, 5, 4, 4.5, 5, 6.
Then stain your wood and wipe off the stain with a cloth. I made two sets of this so there are lots of wood pieces in my picture.
This is what it will look like stained.
Paint the front of your blocks white. Note: I left a tiny bit of wood showing on the sides but it isn't more than 1/8 inch if that.
Pick out your coordinating papers and cut them to size. My size of papers are as follows in inches from left to right:
I love the distressed look with ink so I like to rub the pad across the wood and paper at this point. This would also look adorable not distressed.
Add your vinyl letters or paper letters and put a coat of mod podge over the top to seal it together.
Stand back and admire your work!!
I found this idea on pinterest.
