Easter Blocks

033
These blocks are so stinking cute AND so simple to make!
I don’t normally decorate for the Holidays with
the expectation of Christmas.
But my next T.V. segment is on Easter crafts

I made these blocks in less than a half hour with supplies
I had around the house.
007
What I used:
  • 2x4
  • Sanding Black
  • Sticky Numbers
  • Paint
{optional stain and stamp}
I cut a 2x4 into 3 random sizes.
{Home Depot will make cuts for free if you give them your measurements.}
009
Next sand the edges of each block
015
I used some distress ink on the edges.
I like the worn look it gives after some of the paint is sanded off….
You can also use a little stain if you prefer.
017
Next pick colors and paint!
I LOVE these pastel satin paints from Martha Stewart.
Lucky me won them over at Always in Wonder!
018
One coat did the trick Smile

Then I just gave the blocks a quiet sand so the distress ink shows.
023
I used a little bunny stamp for the top block.

I used 2” sticky numbers on the blocks to spell out…

HAPPY EASTER!

Very cute! They'd be great as little teacher gifts in a classroom. I've made a few projects with blocks, I might have to give these a try as well :)
I'd like to invite you to come link these and any of your creative projects up at my *Get Creative* linky party!
