A Valentine's Day Craft


I've seen wooden blocks used in many creative ways, and I've been itching to try some of my own. These were easy to make. I just painted the blocks with some craft paint, mod-podged on some scrapbook squares and painted on letters from a stencil cut with my Cricut. They look great on display on my dry sink. I didn't want to just plop them on the stark black surface, so I put down some doilies that I inherited from my husband's sweet grandmother. Then I broke out one of my decorating standbys--the cake stand! The finishing touch called for some vintage books in the color RED! I'm so happy with how this little V-day craft turned out!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
