How to repurpose wood blocks into Farmhouse EASTER DECOR



                  Once again I was back at the Dollar Tree and found another idea to share with you.
I found these blocks in the TOY section, but by all means if you have some blocks at home use them.
I wanted my blocks to be used for Easter. I was happy to find the blocks are a set of 9.
                                              Just the right amount for '' HE IS RISEN''.

 
 
                                                         You will only need 1 set of blocks.
If you want to paint a different saying just count out how many letters you need adding blank blocks
                                                               between words if needed.

You will need :  sand paper or sanding block
                          Chalk paint or acrylic paint - I used white 
                        ( chalk paint is a bit thicker but acrylic is fine)
                          Paint brush
                         Sharpie permanent marker- I used black
                         1'' stencil or  size 48 font or  Free Hand ! I prefer free hand
                           a pencil


       The blocks are printed, but the letters are NOT raised. The paint will cover existing letters.
 
 
 
 
             You will paint all sides and let dry. Give another coat if letters show through.




               Use a pencil to stencil or draw your letters on to the blocks. Fill in with your Sharpie.


                                                                                       

Don't worry if it is not perfect, we are going to lightly sand the blocks when we are finished.
                                                                                  
 
 
                           If you like you can sand the edges as well as the letters. I did because I like
                    everything to look OLD, I mean aged, I mean VINTAGE.
   I hope you like this easy craft project. Please let me know if you made a set for your home.
