Are you feeling patriotic this year? Then this simple 2x4 craft is for you! It can be made in no time at all and is sure to make any room more patriotic for the 4th of July holiday or any time of year. Recycle wood or lumber you may have on hand, pull out the Americana scrapbook paper and your Mod Podge...and create a simple and inspiring quote block.

Difficulty: Easy

2x4 Blocks

Craft Paint

Foam Brush

Mod Podge

Scrapbook paper

Printed quote or Vinyl lettering

Sandpaper for edges of the blocks


 Paint Blocks in your favorite coordinating craft paint color and set aside to dry. While paint is drying, tear craft paper to size and set aside to glue.

Next, when all paint is dry, sand edges using sand paper or hand sander and clean with a rag to remove any excess dust from the front surface of the block to prepare for Mod Podge and Scrapbook paper.

Glue Scrapbook paper to block using Mod Podge and foam brush. Smooth out any air bubbles before glue is completely dry. Add lettering using Mod Podge and foam brush and seal with Mod Podge. 

Here is another one I made using the same technique with scrapbook paper and Mod Podge and a different quote- the possibilities are endless!

Enjoy this fun and easy craft!
