I have a couple of adorable nieces that live far from all of their extended family. Since they don't get to see all of us very much I thought "Family Blocks" would be a great birthday present for these two little girls.
I started out with the following supplies:
2x2 stick of wood
mode podge glue
pictures of all the family
black spray paint
assorted colors of acrylic paints
an old ice cream bucket to hold the blocks
I have a wonderful friend who cut the stick into 25 blocks for me(Thanks Dennis). I then spray painted them black. I waited 24 hours and I started decorating the blocks.
It was a fun project that took a little time but it was well worth it. It cost less than $15 dollar to make as well. I only had to buy the wood and pictures. All the other items I had on hand already.
I had to decorate the container as well!
**This idea is not my own. Stories by Me! does some great "block" work. Check her out!
