~Giving Thanks~

Thanksgiving is coming up soon...and I was in desperate need of some Decor for Thanksgiving!! So I threw together this super cute, easy blocks!! They are so fun!! Here is a step by step tutorial!!


Items you will need:
2- 4X4x4 blocks of wood
paint brush
Mod podge
Fall scrapbooking paper
Sand paper
Rub on or Cricket lettering

Here are a few of the supplies.... I forgot a few in the picture! sorry!! :)

Step 1: Sand down your 2- 4x4x4 blocks
Step 2: Paint your blocks with color you chose out
Step 3: While your blocks are can measure and cut your
paper for the your blocks.

Step 4: After your blocks dry...mod podge your paper to all sides of the block

Step 5: Let your blocks dry for at least 24 hrs before stacking them on top
of each other..otherwise they will stick! :)

Step 6: Rub on or transfer your letters and leaves and such on. When rubbing on or transferring your lettering do the "give" on the "left" side of one block and shown below is the "thanks" on the "right side of the other block". That way when you stack them you see both "give" and "thanks".

Step 7: Rub on or transfer on the "thanks" on the right side of the other talked about above! :)

Step 8: Embellish if you would like with buttons or ribbon or anything you want to! :)

Step 9: Let everything dry well and stack them as shown! Set them up somewhere and it can remind you to "give thanks" for the many things we have and the many blessings we all have!!
