Need a quick craft idea for Harvest or Thanksgiving?  Grab your Mod Podge and scrapbook paper!  It's time to make a cute and simple decorative block for the Thanksgiving Holiday!  This little block comes together quickly and would make a great house warming gift too.

Difficulty: Easy


Craft Block- 6"x6" (other sizes will work depending on your lettering or image size)

Scrapbook paper

Paper cutter - or scissors

Black craft paint

Foam brush 

Mod Podge




1. Cut craft block (I bought my craft board already cut for this craft at a local craft store but most of the time when you have wood scraps on hand they work great for this craft). Measure paper for cutting by turning over and tracing block- make paper slightly shorter than the length of the block on all sides.

2. For straight and clean lines- use a paper cutter to cut paper, remembering to cut it slightly shorter for edging puposes.

3. Once paper is cut, use Mod Podge to glue it to the block and let dry. Apply vinyl to the block.

4. Ink the edges using a sponge lightly dipped in black paint(if you do not have an inking sponge you can use a foam brush to apply to the edges) and lightly brush over edges. Let dry.

5. Apply a light coat of Mod Podge over the top of the block.

6. Measure and cut ribbon and tie. You are done and ready to display!
