Decoupage Decorative or Baby Blocks
I got the urge to make something completely new today and I found the world of decoupage. It’s crazy easy stuff but can yield really amazing results. I decided to decorate some wooden blocks and show you how I did it.
1. First you’ll need an assortment of pretty coordinating paper.
2. And you’ll also need some wooden blocks which you can find at most craft stores, along with the pretty paper.
3. Now you need to cut the paper into squares that are about the same size as the sides of your block. If they’re not perfect, that’s ok. You can fix them later.
4. Now, using some Mod Podge or other decoupage paste, coat one side of your block in a thin layer of paste and put a square of paper on it. Make sure you press down on all the edges for a secure seal. Wipe away any glue around the edges.
5. If you find your paper is a little big, you can trim it to fit with a pair of scissors.
6. Continue adding papers to your each block to complete all sides. Be sure to let each block dry completely before the next step. Assuming you’re going to do the next step anyway. It’s optional. Once they’re dry you can sand the edges of each block if desired.
7. Spray each block with some clear coat acrylic spray and let dry. Now you are finished. If you want to use them as baby blocks you could put alphabet stickers on them or decoupage letters before spraying.
