DIY Mother's Day Picture Blocks

A couple of weeks ago Chelsie and I headed over to Tiffany's from Mrs. This and That to work on a Mother's Day project. This project was super easy and fast.

1. Tiffany had some pieces of scrap wood we used for the blocks.  We used 2x4 but you could use any size you want depending on the size of your picture.
2. Paint the wood the color of your choice.
3. Stain the wood for an antique aged look.
4. Use Mod Podge to glue your picture to the block, and a thin layer over the top of your picture for nice finishing touch.

After everything dries you may want to sand down the edges of the picture and distress the wood to your liking. Chelsie and I chose to add some twine, and Tiffany added some scrapbook paper, a button, and a rub on.  You can embellish this block as much as you like.

Enjoy- Christy & Chelsie
