Christmas JOY Blocks

This week’s post is a very exciting one for me! It may be it bit early for some to think about, but Christmas is right around the corner! WHAT?!? You ask? Halloween isn’t even over yet! I know, I know… but I’m so excited that I can’t even contain myself!!! I just reserved my spot at one of the biggest Holiday craft shows of the season here in Northwest Louisiana! It’s called “Mistletoe and More” and I am so, so, so excited to be a new vendor there this year! You can visit their site here. I will be selling several of my one of a kind furniture pieces, and many holiday home décor items. I have SO MUCH to do, and just couldn’t wait to get started! I started rummaging through my garage and craft room to see what I could create in few minutes (really, that’s all I had because my husband was ready to hit the road for our Fall Arkansas trip). I came up with this cute little Holiday Decoration.


You will need: Three scrap 2x4’s pieces. (2-six inch long pieces and 1-three inches long), red acrylic paint, sponge brush, sand paper, adhesive backed glitter paper, electronic cutter, ribbon and a Christmas tree bulb.

First, you will need to sand the rough edges of the 2x4’s if necessary. Using your sponge brush give the 2x4’s a good smooth coat or two of the acrylic paint. While the paint is drying, using your electronic cutter to cut out the letters j-o-y. I set my machine to cut the letters out at 4 inches, but you may have to adjust this depending on the font you choose. Don’t have an electronic cutter? Draw the letters on by hand, carefully paint with adhesive and add glitter! :)

I like the distressed look, so I gave my blocks a light sanding around the edges. If you like a more clean, sharp look, skip the sanding. Add the glitter letters, ribbon and Christmas bulb, and tada! A beautiful, easy (and super quick) holiday decoration! Thanks for stopping by!!!
