Today was fantastic!! Natalie and I spent our Thursday crafting…in our jammies!! It was 27 degrees when we left the house this morning. Brrrrrrrr! We went over to my very good friend Kim’s house, for a day of fun & Christmas crafts!! We played, laughed and got our craft on, while Christmas music played in the background… It was way more fun ’cause we were in jammies. Ya, ya, ya… It may be too early for SOME people to be in the holiday spirit, but not us gals!!

First, we made wood blocks with Christmas sayings. (Inspiration from Pinterest seen here). It took me a bit to get in the crafty groove. We both agreed it was easier having another glittery mind to bounce ideas off of. 😊 … so much fun….. We made four sets of blocks. All with different sayings. They turned out so cute!

SUpPliEs:
Wood
Scrapbook paper
Mod Podge glue
Pencil
Glue gun
Paper with phrases printed
Black marker
Any additional embellishments for decorating. (bells, ribbon, twine, etc)

tHIs iS HoW wE dId iT:

1) Cut & sand pieces of wood (Thank you Kim)

2) Trace wooden blocks on scrapbook paper with pencil. (We found this worked best with solid or light paper. If you pick a bright color and/or busy design, it’s not as easy to see the writing at the end.)

3) Cut out paper and adhere to wooden blocks using a thin coat of Mod Podge glue. Be sure to press down hard to remove any air bubbles

Customize how you see fit. That’s the fun of it!
