Family Blocks

I've made several versions of these blocks before but they were all the same height. This time I wanted to change it up a bit. A few weeks back I took a 2x4 and cut into random lengths. I didn't have a particular project in mind but I had the wood and the saw was right there so  figured I would cut first plan later :)

Yesterday I decided to throw together this cute little project because I'm trying to reorganize my living room shelves.

What you will need:
6 blocks of 2x4 cut at random lengths
brown paint
scrapbook paper
school glue

 I sanded down the edges of my blocks then painted the sides and fronts brown. I don't paint the entire front, just enough around the edges that my paper will cover. I measured my paper then cut it with some decorative scissors and glued it on. I just use regular ole school glue, it works just as well as modge podge and it's less expensive.

Next I use my nifty Silhouette machine and cut out my letters to spell F-a-m-i-l-y and glued them on.

Let dry and display. I looove them! Now I just have to figure out what else to put on that shelf.

Hope you have a great weekend! I'm linking up at these places.
