Seasonal Blocks

This month our CraftyOwls night had to have been my favorite by far. Kelly and I have been looking at so many wooden block crafts but couldn't decide on what holiday we wanted to make one for. So, being the clever (insane) crafters we are, we decided to do every season.

Our blocks are 1.5" x 1.5" so they are small enough to be displayed on shelf but big enough for all to admire.

For some of the months I distressed the paper and edges to give it that "not-so-perfect" look. You could take it one step farther and use Distress ink or paint.
We cut out the vinyl letters using Kelly's Cricut (600 letters wasn't so bad, right?). We choose to switch up the fonts depending on the month for extra cuteness...
I think Merry Christmas is my favorite.

There are 15 blocks in all. So you can stack 'em anyway you like.

We had such a great time with this craft and made over 35 kits for our Crafty Owl friends.

If you are interested in making one yourself click here for the instructions or if you aren't into cutting up 15 wooden blocks visit our CraftyOwls site to purchase a kit :)
