Hi, everyone! Teri here with a fun way to upcycle old wood blocks into a cute piece of decor to add to a desk or a shelf! Just add patterned papers, a few basic paper crafting supplies… and, of course, adhesive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L!
Decorate the Wood Blocks
Start by cutting several pieces of patterned paper to cover your wood blocks with. Cover each side of your blocks with those pieces. Use the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong adhesive to secure the paper panels onto your blocks!
Use a small piece of sandpaper or a nail file to distress the edges of the panels. Make sure you brush off any leftover paper dust after you’ve completed your sanding.
Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with Metallic Transfer Foil
Decorate your blocks by adding a few 3D Foam Hearts (or any other 3D Foam Shape your heart desires) onto them. Burnish foil onto the shapes. I used the gold foil color from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Nature Colors. When removing the top liner from the foam heart, make sure the color is facing you before placing it on top of the exposed adhesive.
Finishing Touches to the Wood Blocks
Continue to decorate your blocks by stamping some words onto cardstock strips and adding them to your blocks with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong. Add a few sequins with Adhesive Dots Micro to your blocks as well.
Finish your piece of home decor by stacking your blocks and using the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong to hold them together. Tie some twine or ribbon around them to not only hold them together but add a cute accent!
When you are finished, you’ll have a cute piece of decor to put on a desk or shelf in your home or office! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
