Hello! Happy Friday! It’s the weekend! Yay! I hope you all have some fabulous plans for the next couple of days! Ours are up in the air since it’s suppose to rain the entire weekend! So we will see what gets done! ha! ;) We do have a Primary talent show on Saturday. I have one that is being a mime (too cute!) & the other one (my mini me!) is showing all of her craft projects. :) Buuuut before I take off I wanted to share this easy Chalkboard Inspired Spring Block tutorial with you! This would make an easy rainy day project. #justsaying So keep reading! :)
You’ll need a few supplies to get started:
vinyl lettering (I found this spring wreath image in the Silhouette online store.)
wood block (My block was about 10 inches by 9 inches.)
This really is so easy to put together. If you didn’t have to wait for the paint to dry you could put it together in under 10 minutes. ha! ;)
After you paint your block (I used 2 coats of paint.) & your paint is dried you’ll apply your vinyl. Applying vinyl is super easy. Vinyl comes on a backing paper with clear transfer paper on top. You carefully remove the backing paper. Flip it over onto the wood block right were you want to apply your vinyl decal (transfer paper on top). Then gently rub the transfer paper with your hand. Slowly lift your transfer paper off leaving your vinyl on the wood. It’s amazing! I applied the spring wreath vinyl first. I made sure I left some room at the bottom for the “hello spring”.
I found the “hello” in the Silhouette online store, too, & I cut the “spring” out using a font from my computer. Apply those along the bottom of your block.
I am so glad that spring is here! How about you?
I hope you have a great weekend!
I’ll see you back here on Monday!
