Ginger Snap Crafts: tutorial {grandma’s house knob block}

tutorial {grandma’s house knob block}

Today I’m guesting over at Southern Lovely
in Lindsay’s What I Know Series! Yay!
Lindsay’s blog is one of my favorite must reads!  She’s awesome! :)
So make sure you stop by & say hi!

Today I’d love to show you how to make
this super easy & cute gift for Grandma.

Tracy from The Crafty Polkadot
(another one of my awesome blogging friends) :)
found this idea on Pinterest* & wanted to make some for Christmas.
I helped her cut the vinyl, & since I thought it was soooo cute I
decided to make one for my mom. (Her birthday is coming up soon!)
The kiddos call my mom “Mema” instead of Grandma! ;)

*The original pin came from Super Saturday Craft Kits blog,
& you can buy the kit to make one of these from them.
Check out all the details {

You’ll need:
2x4 (cut into a 7 inch block)
vinyl (I used the Oh {Photo} Shoot font.)
a wooden knob
craft paint

It’s super easy.  You just attach your knob to your block.
Paint your block whatever color you’d like.  Let dry.
Apply your vinyl lettering.  Tie a ribbon around your knob.
There you go all done!  So cute!
Annnnd Grandma (or Mema!) is going to LOVE it!


Have a fabulous weekend,
and I’ll see YOU on Monday!


  1. I love this little sign. I must use this saying! Thanks for posting this!

    And thanks so much for guesting at my place today, so happy to have you!

  2. I love this project! Oh it is cute how your kiddos call their grandma Mema!
    My mother in law cant wait for someone to call her 'lola'! (Grandma in our language)


  3. It turned out sooo cute! Everyone I made them for LOVED them and I know your Mema will too : ) I did knobs on 2 of mine and on the last one I left the knob off and just wraped the ribbon all the way around the block and that was really cute too. I hoping to get a post up about it with the different pics! BTW, thanks for linking back to me : )

  4. What a cute sign! The saying is so true. We were able to spend quite a bit of time with our relatives over the holidays at grandma's house and the kids had a blast!

  5. This is so cute. This would make a great gift for my mom and my grandma! Great job!
