Do you have Ben Franklin crafts where you live? I believe they're independently operated, so one could be totally different from the next, but we love the one near us in Monroe, WA. Great selection and great project ideas. We picked up a flyer for these seasonal word blocks and put them together, just in time for "winter." The best part? You get sixteen different decor options out of one project! Sixteen! That's out-of-control cool.
We started with seven pre-cut blocks from Ben Franklin (you can probably find these at most craft/hobby stores, or cut your own). We sanded and painted them, then cut vinyl letters to place on each side of each block. If you don't have access to a vinyl cutter, you could stencil them on with paint or use chipboard letters. You could also try decoupaging (Mod Podge) patterned paper onto the blocks instead of painting them. Get creative!
Are you curious to know which sixteen seasonal words some genius came up with using these seven blocks? Check this out:
Are you convinced you have to make these? Good. These are the letters you'll need to place on each block:
Block One: H Y E D
Block Two: A C R S
Block Three: R P E T
Block Four: V N L O
Block Five: E O M D
Block Six: S M K I
Block Seven: T F B W
Not enough room in your life (or living room) for 16 seasonal decor options? These would make a great gift!
