Quote blocks

I've seen these blocks before on many blogs and websites and thought I'd give it a go. I am not sure on the size of these blocks as I didn't buy them, they were already laying around the house   I sanded them down a bit just to get the rough edges off. Then I used a can of off white spray paint and did a very quick coat. I wanted to be able to see some of the wood grain through the paint for a more rustic, rugged, antiquey look. Yes, I'm aware that antiquey isn't a real word. Ssssh! This is my post!
After a quick coat of paint
 I used americana-ish cardstock and cut 3 strips to fit the sides. I used a mixture of glue and water for this as I don't have mod podge. I applied the words God bless America that I had cut from my handy dandy cricut machine. And voila, cute little blocks to sit on the antique stereo in the living room.These pics are horrible, taken with my phone.
With a patriotic ribbon
With a little bit of light blue tulle

I left them just as they are, I like the look of them simple and stacked.

  1. Those are super cute! I might have to try to make a set of these myself.


I love your comments, even if they aren't in agreement with my thoughts, but please, be respectful! Thanks for reading!
