Love Blocks

This was going to be part of my Valentines Decorations, but circumstances didn't allow me to get to it until after. My mom's ward were making these the week before Valentines.  I was supposed to be at my parents that week, but the weather was bad, and we were down to one car.  So I finally picked up the blocks this week, and made them on my own.  It was a lot of fun, and they look great!  I think they'll be out for sometime still.
The blocks were already painted for me, but this would be really easy to do.  Just cut a 2x4 into the sizes you want your letters, then sand and paint.
Mod Podge some colorful paper on the blocks.  The letters are vinyl cutouts, with a sticky back.  There are a lot of places that make vinyl letters like this.  In the future (because I plan on making more!) I'll just use my cricut to cut the letters out of paper.  Then mod podge them on.  After sticking the letters I added another layer of mod podge to seal it all.
Then embellish and display!
