DIY Easter Wood Blocks Decoration

This is such an easy Easter decoration to make! The kids could help you cut out the paper pieces from the Doodlebug Design Easter Expression Paper Collection. Start by painting the unfinished wood blocks with black acrylic paint and let dry completely. Adhere the paper cut out pieces to the blocks using Mod Podge as your glue and sealer. That's it!

DIY He Is Risen Blocks

If you're looking for a religious Easter decoration, this block project is beautiful and easy to make! You simply have to paint the unfinished wood blocks with the paint of your choice. Or you can use Alcohol Inks to give a light tint color to the wood. Then distress the edges with sand paper to give the blocks a shabby chic look. Apply the self-adhesive vinyl "He is Risen" to the dry blocks.


We hope you enjoyed this easy-to-make religious decoration that you'll be able to display every year! All the supplies featured here are available at our Ben Franklin Crafts store in Monroe, WA. (while supplies last). If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call us at 360-794-6745 ext. 0, or stop by and we'll be happy to help you.

Wood Pallet Decorations

You've probably noticed how popular the wood pallet decor is. It fits really well with the hot "farmhouse" trend, but it also goes well with any decor. We're not asking you to go out to the barn and start taking apart some old pallets you've been saving for a future project. We make it easy by having ready-to-decorate pallet boards in several sizes and styles!

Our team of designers made two very easy-to-make decorations. The first one is a beautiful 11.5" already-painted wood pallet board to which they added silver flowers and leaves. They colored them with Tim Holtz alcohol inks in these colors: Bottle, Sunshine, Yellow and Espresso. It gave it a sunflower look. They finished it up by attaching the metal pieces with a foam board, hot glue and E6000 to the pallet board.
