Valentine Love Blocks

 

 
I can't believe it's time to start thinking about decorating for Valentine's Day already.  Can you?

I don't do a lot of decorating for this special day.  I like to keep it sweet and simple.

Using the same idea as my Fall Blocks, I just finished some Valentine Love Blocks. Instead of cutting them 2x4, they were cut 4x4.  Actually 3-3/4" x 3-3/4".  2x4's are really 3-3/4".  Did you know that?  I wanted them an even square.

 
 I used a sponge brush and acrylic craft paints.  Make sure you sand them first.

I used my Cricut to make a stencil.  I chose sayings that were on candy conversation hearts.

  After the paint dried, I sanded the blocks so they had that worn look that I love.


Now that you've seen how easy this is, make some for yourself.
