The Friday How-2–Birthday Blocks

It’s Friday!  And, we are just days away from a very important 9th birthday for middle daughter who insists on growing up faster than I gave her permission to do….

So, for the birthday girl’s centerpiece decor,  this mom thought to highlight just how quickly time is passing by making these “birthday blocks”.

Supplies:

Any scrap block wood; craft stores usually sell them in bags of ten or so

Your favorite paint or spray paint

stamps or embellishments

Glue dots or other strong adhesive

Pictures

Super Simple How-2:

Print your pictures out to desired size (pics shown are printed in a “wallet” size

Paint your blocks in your desired colors

Stamp or embellish each block after paint has dried

attach pictures with glue dots, mounting squares or other strong adhesive

Other Ideas:

Thanksgiving Centerpiece or place card holder with pictures of family and embellished with a “Give Thanks” theme

Christmas Decor with old family pictures of Christmas past, or current Christmas photos.

I will bring these to you as I do them….stay tuned!

You have more creative “block” ideas?  Spill it!

have a great weekend!  Happy Birthday to my sweet girl!   dcb
