This is a difficult post for me to write...because if it wasn't for cancer, I wouldn't be writing it. Unfortunately, cancer has touched my life three times too many. First, my maternal grandfather passed away three years ago due to this disease, and then my very own mother, Susan, just last year. Needless to say, this past year has presented itself with many unique challenges.
I have a confession to make...I'm an addict. An addict to creating. You see, if too many days go by without allowing my little fingers to create something, I just don't feel like myself. I think I inherited this from my mom. Growing up, my mom was always engaged in various forms of arts and crafts-pottery, soapmaking, spinning wool, knitting, woodcarving, jewelry, baking, designing flower beds...the list could go on and on. No joke.
Have you been looking for a fun holiday craft? Here is one I just finished that you might enjoy.
You will need the following supplies:
~blocks-2 (4.5" X 3.5" X .75") and 1 (4" X 3.5" X .75")-I loved the varied sizes
~letters J, O, Y (2.5" high )this is best achieved with a die-cut or cricket cutter
~desired paint color
* * *
Step One~Sandpaper and paint your blocks
Step Two-Modge Podge your background paper to the block
Step Three: Modge Podge the letters to the paper. Then paint a layer of Modge Podge over the entire block to give it a nice finished look
And Walahh! You are done!
And there you have it--a simple and enjoyable Christmas decoration!
