Looking for an easy and versatile craft that is good for almost any occasion? These DIY wood block letters are fun, simple and fast to create.
Hey, guess what?
Be “leaf” in yourself…so you won’t “fall” behind.
(did I just hear you groan)
I hope not…because who doesn’t love “acorny” joke.
Even though sometimes they can be kind of “squirrly.”
….except for this one (hee hee)
Happy almost fall and have a “gourd”eous day.
I’ll be here all week.
And now? Enough joking around.
Here’s how to make these wood block letters.
This is one of my favorite “trasformations.” I love creating trash out of treasure.
And the best part of this project?
It came out of the trash.
We had just finished cutting plenty of this for the house and there were extra molding odds and ends.
I saved them from the trash and thought….“I “can” turn them into something.”
And I was right.
Here’s my something that I finally made…..
…sure glad I kept on “truckin’.” 🙂
(total aside: don’t you love it when the jokes are so bad that you have to underline them)
DIY Wood Block Letters
random pieces of wood molding
random paint colors leftover from projects
Step 1: Cut random pieces of molding to different sizes
Perfection is not the goal.
(total aside…I love any project where perfection is not on the list of supplies)
Step 2: Paint pieces with random paint colors left over from projects
The more random—the better.
If it looks too uniform then the paint isn’t random enough.
Distress random painted pieces of molding with sandpaper.
Step 3: Hot glue random chipboard letters
I chose capital letters and lower case letters.
Then hot glue the letters to the pieces of molding.
(total note to self: take more pictures of random chipboard letters….they look like pieces of art)
You can spell fall or joy or your name or a quote or even a fall joke.
The sky’s the limit.
I don’t want to “squash” any ideas you might have.
Total pun intended. 🙂
