So I finally finished a craft! It’s been a while because I haven’t been feeling so well so it’s been hard to stay motivated to do things. And I still have a list of Christmas gifts I need to make! But anyway, I was glad to finally finish something. And now onto my list!
I went to Home Depot the other day to get some wood and cut some blocks for other projects I’m working on. The last block was a little smaller which I thought would be perfect for my Snowflake Block!
Here’s what you need:
– Wood Block (mine was 6.5 x 9 x 1.2)
– Scrapbook Paper
– Mod Podge
– White Paint
– Paintbrush or Sponge
– Letter Stickers
– Snowflake Ornament
Start with your block of wood. Use sandpaper to smooth out the edges and corners.
Cut the scrapbook paper so that it covers the front, left, and right sides of the block.
Mod Podge the paper on the block. Make sure to Mod Podge under the paper and then again on top to make sure it sticks well and gives it that mod podge look.
I already had this sparkly snowflake ornament, but you can use any type of snowflake you have! Outline the snowflake with a pencil so you know where to paint.
Use a paintbrush or sponge to dab on white paint where the snowflake will go. I didn’t think the snowflake stood out enough on it’s own so the white paint gives it a good background color.
Use a glue gun to glue the snowflake on the white background.
Then use sticker letters or vinyl letters to make the words Let it SNOW and tie a lovely ribbon on the side and you’re done! A super cute decoration for the winter holidays!
