Christmas Letter Blocks

Last year I did some wood block letters for Christmas and I had a request to do some more this year.
You need some 2”x4”s, a sanding block, some scrapbooking paper, spray paint, modge podge, your choice of letters, yada yada yada…. and presto.
Recycled and beautiful.

You can use scrapbook paper, Christmas paper, left over Christmas Cards.. whatever you have.
Cut the 2 x 4's to about 6 inches tall and sand them down really well.  Don't want any splinters!  Paint them up with your colour choice, modge podge some paper on the side and add letters.

I got these little wooden letters from Michael's Craft Store.  The were hot glued to the dried  modge podge.

  1. Oh, these are great! I thought I was almost finished with my holiday crafts, but my list just grew. Can't wait to do these!

  2. I love them! I love that you used wood letters as I've seen these done with vinyl lettering but I don't have one of those machines. I actually like the depth the wood letters give these! Great for a quick and simple project, too. Love the papers you used. You've reminded me that I have a kit something like this that I need to pull out and do {before it's too late!}.

  3. Those are fantastic Lisa!!

    I am working on some letters for my kitchen...they weren't exactly what I wanted and was wondering how I was going to add some 'spark' and color to them.

    Now you've got me thinking maybe adding them to wood might be better than just the letters alone!!

    Oh and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the lights and wreath added to your header!!

  4. Love those!! Your pictures are gorgeous! I love the JOY pic with the twinkle in the ornament!

  5. Hi Lisa! This is too funny. Just last night I was going thru a bunch of old stuff to see what I could use in my booth and for an upcoming show. I came across a bag from Michael's. In it were four wooden letter exactly like those (but spelled my oldest daughter's name M-A-C-Y). I was trying to think of something unique to do with them and you've just sparked an idea I can do in their "Paris Apt" style room! I've had another daughter who just turned 6 so I guess I need to return and get G-R-A-C-E!)
    Thanks for the inspiration!
    Blessings to You,

  13. The Xmas blocks are a great idea for leftover 2x4s. I have plenty of leftovers because I cut several 2x4s too short for another project. Thanks for the great idea! Happy crafting.
