DIY Home Décor – Wood Blocks

Here’s a fun and easy DIY Home Décor idea…Wood Block Letters! These would make the perfect home decoration, house warming gift, birthday gift, going away gift, or you could even make them for Holidays or a baby nursery with baby’s name on them! Tons of possibilities with these cute blocks. You could even put photos on the sides and rotate to change the picture. So fun!

Ready to make some fun DIY Home Décor wood blocks? Well let’s get started! Here’s what you’ll need…


  • 3 or 4 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).

These 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 the blocks for cheaper!
