God Bless America craft block with Silhouette

For this project you’ll need a few supplies:
a Silhouette
God Bless America image from Silhouette
flag image from Silhouette
red, white & blue vinyl
transfer paper
2x4 wooden blocks
craft paint & brushes


I love using 2x4s for craft projects. They a super cheap, & you can easily cut them to the perfect size for fun holiday projects like these. For this project I simply cut my blocks to the size I wanted. I painted the blocks & let them dry. Then I cut out the images with my Silhouette using some vinyl. Once the paint was nice & dry I applied my vinyl lettering. You can see a how to apply vinyl lettering tutorial right {HERE}. Then I tied a ribbon around the flag block & stacked them up. It was that easy! ;)

  6. Hi Ginger. I love quick and easy projects! Your patriotic blocks are festive and cute. Bring on the July 4th picnics!

  7. Love these! What are the dimensions of each piece?

    1. The God Bless America block is 7 inches long & almost 3 1/2 inches tall. The flag is 2 3/4 inches tall by almost 3 1/2 wide. So basically they are cut from a 2x4. One is cut into one 7 inch piece and another cut into a 2 3/4 inch piece. :)
