I Love Snow ~ Vintage Style Wooden Blocks Decoration

This was a fun little project...

I had my DH cut some scrap wood into 3"x 3" blocks with slightly rounded edges and I sanded them nice and smooth.  Then I choose 4 different patterns of paper, but all coordinating in color and cut them to fit my blocks, making sure that each side of each block had a different pattern to display.  I lightly inked all the paper edges with some TH distress ink.  I applied the papers with Modge Podge and let it dry completely.  Once they dried, I painted each side of each block with a sheer glimmer paint, for a very fine glitter effect (not visible in pic, but really pretty).  Last but not least, I added these pre-cut and pre-glittered, gold and red chipboard letters.



  1. What a fabulous project, Lisa!! I love the look of the blocks (even if I don't love snow ;) The glittery letters are awesome!! Have a great week :)

  5. Hi Lisa, This is snow ADORABLE! lol... Sorry just had to say it that way. It truly is just wonderful and I love the blue patterned papers that you have used. It really fits the whole idea of the blocks and the I love snow theme. I think this would really made a wonderful Christmas/Winter decoration for just about anyone. Your hubby and you have both done good once again. Your home must be wonderful between the talents that you both have. Hope your week is going good. Hugs, Lisa G
