DIY: Spring Wood Blocks

This is such a great way to bring Spring into your home! It's so easy to turn plain unfinished wood blocks into a great display.

Spring Wood Blocks using Mod Podge and Vinyl Letters

Here's what you'll need:

• Acrylic Paint
• Paint Brush
• 6 Unfinished Wood Blocks, of different sizes
• Scrapbook Paper
• Mod Podge, used as glue
• Vinyl Word "Spring"
• Popsicle Stick

1. Brush the acrylic paint on all your wood blocks. Note: You don't need to cover the center area of each side since that will be covered with paper. The color will show only on the edges. Let dry completely.

2. Place each block on your paper and trace. Cut each piece about 1/8 in. smaller. This way you will see your paint on the edges, which will create a beautiful border.

3. Apply Mod Podge to the block (1 side at a time). Place your paper. Repeat this process until all sides have been covered with paper. You can cover them all with the same paper, or you can use several coordinating colors of paper. Apply a coat of Mod Podge over the paper to seal it. Let dry.

4. Now it's time to add your vinyl letters to each block. Use a Popsicle stick to make sure there's no air bubbles left. Click here for more information on how to apply vinyl.
