Word blocks

Oh Joy! It's officially Christmas time!! I hope you all had
a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't get sick eating too
much pie.....I know I didn't. Who can have too much
pie anyway?!

I celebrated T day at my mamma's house last week and we got a
little crafty. The result: "Joy" blocks. You'll have to forgive me.
I didn't take any manufacturing pictures,
but it's a super easy project.

What you'll need:

3 8x4" blocks (I just used a scrap 2x4)
paint brush

Okay, here we go

1. sand your blocks well, making sure to knock off the corners.

2. paint your blocks in a color that makes you happy.

3. Find a font that you like and stretch it out in your paint program.
Print it out on cardstock (if possible) and cut out the letters for
your template.

4. With a glue stick, glue your letters onto your fabric (wrong side)
and cut out. This prevents fraying.

5. Mod Podge your letters onto your wood blocks and apply a
healthy dose of Mod Podge on top of the letters. Let it dry.

6. Sand the edges and corners of your blocks.

7. Place in a pretty room and admire them often!
