Christmas on the block

Our new challenge over at Crafty Boots is…. Christmas, YAY! My first DT project that I am going to share is some altered wooden blocks.


These were super easy to make. I gave the blocks a coat of gesso and then, on the larger one, a coat of red paint. On the latter I also rubbed the edges with gold acrylic paint. I applied vintage Christmas images (courtesy of the Gecko Galz) using sparkle Mod Podge on the cube and gloss Mod Podge on the ATC. To finish them off, I added some silver glitter along the edges of the cube and tied candy strip cord around the ATC sized one, adding a couple of tiny rusty jingle bells for god measure.

I love that I have found a great way to utilise lots of nostalgic images and papers.

Thanks for buzzing by.
