I prepared a portion of the project and then the kids did a little painting, sanding, and gluing.
Here is the room nicely organized before one of the classes started.
Here you can see the blocks were prepainted. The kids then painted the letters.
I had a special request for MUM.
Painting started cleanly! It took a long time for this particular set to dry!
My boys all attended one of the sessions. Mommy chose the papers they would be using. Yes I am a little controlling.
The blocks were sanded an the edges a little to give that distressed look.
Then the papers were "glued" to the blocks with Mod Podge. Straight to the block and then coated across the top.
A hot glue gun attached the letters onto the blocked once they were dry and sanded like the blocks.
The ribbon was tied around the full block and into a bow. There was then a little extra length tied in a knot around the original bow. I added a little hot glue to secure the bow from coming undone.
If you are interested I have a few extra sets left over! Kits are $12.00 and will come with pre painted blocks.
