Wooden Christmas blocks

One thing I love about Christmas is finding lots of home made decoration ideas!! This is the newest to my collection finished just last week. Thank God that my dad has a wood lot and a back yard filled with lumber cause I knew I wanted to make some of these blocks after seeing them being sold at a craft fair for $10 a block!

So the other weekend when we were home I made my request for 2 * 2 cubes and headed out shopping with mom. When I returned home I had more blocks then I know what to do with...ok so that is a lie I have LOTS of things I want to do with them.

I made these ones by buying some toll paint ($1). The color I chose was antique white and I used brown card stock for the letters. The letters I cut out with my cricut using the Calligraphy cartridge. Then to give them a "antique" look I inked the edge with some brown ink.

I really love how they turned out!! They look beautiful lined up on the mantel with the greenery, lights and cinnamon applesauce ornaments.

For lots more Frugal Christmas ideas head on over here.
