tutorial {love blocks}

love blocks

Happy Friday to YOU!!!!
Today I’d LOVE to show you how to make
these super easy {LOVE} blocks.
Perfect for Valentine’s Day! :)

You’ll need:
(4) 4X4 blocks
paint (red, white & pink)
ribbon (I ended up using red not white!)
LOVE vinyl lettering blocks in red, pink & white
(I got the LOVE clip art from the
Silhouette online store.)

These were super easy to make!
Just paint your blocks, let them dry & then apply your vinyl lettering.
(For more detailed vinyl lettering instructions

Love that you can stack them several different ways!
(Sorry I’m using the word LOVE so much….I can’t help it!) :)

I ended up stacking mine like this,
& then tying a red ribbon around
the blocks to hold them all together.

Have a fabulous weekend!!!!
