Ginger Snap Crafts: Christ Block {tutorial}

Christ Block {tutorial}

This post is brought to you by http://christmas.mormon.org/.

Hello! Yesterday I shared how we love to spread the joy on Christmas. Annnnd today I am so excited to let you know about the brand new #LIGHTtheWORLD campaign  from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that starts December 1st. For 25 days there will be 25 ways you can serve others. You can sign up {HERE} to get notified when everything begins. Every day they will have a different theme & a different way you can serve like Christ did. For example, day 11’s theme is Jesus Ministered to Children. One service idea to go along with that theme is to put a picture of Christ in your children’s bedrooms, & to teach your children of the Savior’s love for them. My kiddos & I decided to make these Christ Blocks for their bedrooms. We even made one for my missionary son. Let me show you how! :)

For this project you will need:
image of Christ 4x6 print
5x7 block of wood
Mod Podge
paint
foam brush
sandpaper
twine

First, I downloaded an image from {HERE}, and then I uploaded it to picmonkey.com, so I could edit it. It’s an awesome little program!

Then I added the text “He Lives” using the text tool. I saved it to my computer, & then sent it to the photo lab to be developed.

After we picked up our prints, it was time to make our blocks. First, we painted out blocks.

After the paint dried, we distressed the edges with sandpaper.

Next, we got out some Mod Podge. :)

Put a layer of Mod Podge on first & then put the picture right on top of that. Smooth it out.

My kids loved creating their own block to match their rooms.
