blocks of love...

I {love} Valentines Day!! I {love} the pinks and reds and the decorating!!! Here is another cute and simple Valentines Day craft!! Have fun! :0)
{blocks of love}
Items Needed:
2- 2x4x4 blocks
2-2x4x6 blocks
Paint brush
Sand paper or Block
Vinyl/ Rub-on lettering
Distressing Ink AKA Stamp pad & Napkin :)
Step 1: Paint a few good coats of paint on your 4 blocks. I used Barn Red for all 4 of them! You could also paint them different colors...the choice is yours!! :)

Step 2: After your blocks have dried really well. Take your sanding block or paper and sand the corners and edges to give them the "weathered" look! You could also distress the corners with ink at this point if you would like!
Step 3: Rub-On or Transfer your letters L, a heart for the 0, V and E to your blocks. The L and the V go on the bigger blocks and the heart and E go on the smaller ones!
Step 4: Embellish with ribbon and buttons if you so choose!! I {love} buttons and ribbon!!!!

Step 5: Set them on top of a shelf...or counter or wherever you would like!! Step back and admire the cuteness!!!!
