This is one of my Valentines Day decorations that I just love. And, it's super simple to make!
1 1/2 inch square blocks (I purchased these at Hobby Lobby, but you can easily cut your own if you have the tools)
Paint - colors of your choice
Letters - mine were puchased at Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook section. They are made by Spare Parts. You could use stickers, vinyl, or anything that suits you for letters.
Tape - preferrably painters tape
Adhesive (if your letters are not already sticky)- I used glue dots
- Paint blocks with your base color of choice. Allow to dry completely
- Tape off a square and paint the inside of the square (note, I have other blocks that I painted a 1 inch square piece of paper and glued it on. That worked just as well. That's a springtime tutorial!)
- Allow to dry.
- Mod Podge to seal the paint (you could use any spray sealant, if you choose)
- Adhere letters to blocks
Here's my favorite thing about these blocks:
They fit perfectly with this birthday calendar I made with my women-in-laws! I have a few other block sets that I change out seasonally.
