Christmas Blocks

My mother-in-law likes my crafts. She compliments me all of the time on the things that I make and she has asked me a few times to make her something. I decided that I'd do something crafty for her for Christmas this year.

I decided to spell CHRISTMAS using wooden blocks covered in holiday scrapbook paper.

{Another one of my mood lighting pictures!}

I used my Cricut to cut out the letters (I love that machine!). Then I cut out squares to fit on each side of the block and glued the pieces using Mod Podge. I glued one letter per block and added another layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper for a finished look.

Here's the result:

I hope she likes it!
