Create a set of these adorable blocks for Spring time to make your home extra bright and cheery. You can also use the same blocks to spell Summer in vinyl on the back for an additional seasonal decoration!  How simple is that?!

Difficulty: Easy

Materials:

2x4 wood board
Scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Vinyl or Die Cuts or
Painted letters
Paper Cutter
Scissors
Craft Paint
Foam Brush

Directions:

 Cut five wood blocks with a chop saw measuring 4" and one measuring 5 1/2". If you do not know how to cut wood or are uneasy about doing it- you can have them cut at your local hardware store or you can also find these blocks at most craft stores already sanded for about 50 cents a block. If cutting them yourself, make sure to sand the edges with a hand sander.

Gather your favorite Scrapbook paper and Paper cutter and using blocks and pencil, trace around the blocks from the corner of the opposite side of the papers and cut with paper cutter. If your blocks are all the same size- you can use this first square as your template for tracing onto the rest of the squares. Use scissors to round the edges of the paper to fit the block better.

Paint all sides of blocks, except bottom, and set aside to dry.

Now it is time to glue your paper- glue your paper square using a foam brush and Mod Podge, being careful not to put too much glue and smoothing out as you go otherwise the paper will wrinkle.

Once your blocks are all glued- let them dry for at least 30 minutes. Add your vinyl and cover with Mod Podge or just display as is!
