L O V E Blocks X O X O

Love is in the air, so I decided to make some love blocks. It was a simple, quick craft. You will need 4 wood blocks (mine are cut to a 4x4 size), and some craft paints.




I sanded my blocks to make them smooth.





Then painted them white and pink.




Then stenciled the letters on in the opposite color of the block.










Wait, there's nothing "evil" about these cute blocks...







On the other side, I decided to put "X O X O" so that I can switch them around if I want to.


Lookin' cute on my mantel. I love these blocks!


There's still time to sign up for the Spray Grip giveaway! Go here to see how.

  3. Barbara Jean, I used my Cricut to cut out the letters for the stencil. I used the Storybook cartridge.

  6. They turned out super cute! Is it weird that I love the wood grain showing through in circle on the top? Anyway, thanks for linking up on A Little Tipsy.

  7. Michelle, I liked the wood grain too- that's why I didn't put a third coat of paint on them. Thanks for hosting the party!

  36. It turned out so cute. I have the expression and cut that same heart out for a decoration I made, and decided it looked like a devil with the horns. I cut out a different one. I love that I'm not the only one who saw the "evil" potential of the horned heard.
    Here's what I came up with with mine:
