    homemade gifts for grandma

    I made these fun blocks for both Grandma’s Christmas presents this year! They LOVED them!

    I remember seeing something similar at a holiday boutique and they cost $40. Trust me you can make them much cheaper- and probably cuter too!

    painted wood blocks

    I started out with a 4x4x8. Then I cut the blocks ( and when I say I, I mean the guys at home depot lol) down to 3.5 in. The base I had cut to 7 inches.

    applying vinyl

    After I gave each block a couple coats of paint I printed out the vinyl with my Silhouette.  You could really do any variation of colors. I chose a more neutral color to match their houses.

    distress ink

    Then I distressed the edges with a little distress ink. Gosh I love this stuff!

    hand painted gifts

    Next I cut my pictures down to 3×3 and modpodged them on.

    homemade gifts for mom

    Once they were dry I tied a little bow around them, and sent them off to grandma’s!

    Both grandma’s loved them!

    I have seen this quote altered to say “Mom,” “Dad,” or “Grandpa.”

    Get creative, and get crafting!
