Happy Friday everyone! For today's project, I decided to tackle something I've never done before...decorating naked wood. The whole idea has always sounded so daunting to me, but now that I've done it I realize what I've been missing out on!
I found a Noel wood block set at my local big box store. I thought this would make a great gift for a friend.
I traced the letters onto the paper then cut them out. After adhering them to the wooden letters with my Xyron sticker maker, I inked the edges with a brown cat's eye ink pad. Then I cut out the papers for the wooden blocks and used my sticker maker to adhere those as well.
It's hard to see from the picture, but once I was done with the blocks, I sanded the edges to get rid of the overlapping paper on the corners. It adds a more worn look to the blocks, which I liked.
I inked the edges of the blocks, added the letters and embellishments and the project was complete! Super easy and SUPER cute!!
Like I said, these would make great gifts for the homemade decor lover. I was going to give them to a friend but decided to keep them for myself. Is that wrong? :)
I hope this inspires you to take on a project that you've never tackled before. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
