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! ;)
