Today I have a new craft for you all to help celebrate the season with Joann Fabric and Craft Store. There is nothing that makes me happier than creating, so I snagged a few goodies from Joann Fabric and Craft Store, set up my GLEE episodes via Hulu+, and got to crafting.
I used my Christmas and Winter Paper Stack from DCWV and wooden blocks I bought with a coupon. I wanted to create a Christ themed Christmas decoration, so blocks spelling out His named would be perfect. These blocks just make me happy...making them reminded me how much I love scrapbooking and working with fun patterned papers.
To make your own Christ blocks, you only need to follow a few steps.
Start by painting your blocks. Make sure that the sides are covered completely with paint. (Check out my silly tutorial video on instagram). Once dry, trace your letters onto scrapbook paper. I used DCWV 12x12 Christmas and Winter Paper Stack. I love these, since you know all the papers coordinate with one another. Cut out your letter and trim the sides if needed.
Use modge podge to adhere your paper onto the blocks.
Add ribbon, twine, and other baubles.
