Home Blocks

Here’s a fun and easy idea for a House Warming Gift. Home Blocks!

These are really cute and easy to make!

  • 3 inch unfinished wood blocks from Michaels craft store
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Yes Glue
  • Embellishments (ribbon, buttons, twine, etc.)
  • Paint/paint brush
  • Stamp ink pad/makeup sponge
  • Hot glue gun


I sanded and painted the blocks first, then I cut and glued the paper on with “yes” glue. Once it was dry I sanded the edges, then used a makeup sponge and stamp ink on the edges to get the rusty look. Then I put on letters and embellishments (hot glue gun works fine for embellishments).

They would look great on a mantal or shelf, I gave these to a dear friend as a birthday gift!

Note: You could also do other words or do another letter on the other side so you could change the word (put a “p” on the other side of the “m” and flip it to change the word to “hope” etc.) The blocks are about 2.50 each and depending on the cost of paper and embellishments you could make this craft for as little as $10.00. Save by using old paper scraps or using coupons at michaels to get blocks for cheaper!

    The letters are made out of the same paper I used for the background. I used my Silhouette to cut them but you can trace letters on the paper and cut them yourself.
