Amazingly Easy Holiday Project

For today’s blog post I enlisted the help of the amazing Christie Millet and her super-powered craft skills. She has come up with a fantastic craft to give a boost to your holiday decorating. I LOVE this project because it is easy on the budget as well as just plain EASY! Take it away Christie-

 Holiday Present Blocks


These adorable blocks are both fun and simple to make, and they dress up any holiday decor!

All it takes is four easy steps.

1. We went to the local Home Depot for supplies, here you see a 4 x 4 that has been cut in 3, 6, and 9 inch increments.


2. Next you will want to paint or stain the blocks. For our project, we used both Wood Stain which we purchased at Home Depot and Chalk Paint we bought at Walmart.


3.Once they are dry, tie the ribbon on. I love ribbon, it always adds just the special something to a project. Here you can see we added it to the block before cutting so we could get just the right look. We also used two different ribbon styles and colors. The best thing to do is add the ribbon you love because the ribbon is the pop in the project.


4. Here you can see the finished block. To add a little bit of  flair, we sanded the edges and a bit towards the middle. Then they were then sealed with Modge Podge.


**The ribbon is dove tailed on the ends. Love it, but not sure how to do it. Don’t worry- I’ll show you how in my next post.
