Being a preschool teacher has given me the eye for many unusual things that I can’t even think about throwing away- they can always have a purpose. While this occasionally drives my husband nuts, he deals with me and my scrap wood, styrofoam, beads, bobbles, branches, concrete blocks and other number of odd scraps I tend to collect because he is the best! Through my blog hopping this week I noticed a bunch of great Valentine’s day crafts with x’s and o’s and a few with 2×4’s and I found a bucket of 2 x 4 scraps in my garage and thought I would combine the two ideas and came up with these Valentine Wooden Blocks.
Here is what you need:
2 x 4 scraps, mine were 6 inches long
Brown acrylic paint
Then came using my Cricut to cut 2 x’s and 2 o’s out of white card stock and attaching them with the Mod Podge. I attached mine at an angle because I thought it was more fun that way and then cut off the part that hung over the edge.
Very easy and added a little festive flare to my living room.
