Blocks are one of the easiest crafts to make, and also one of the cheapest. I am lucky enough to have a brother that has a bunch of tools and that is also nice enough to cut/sand wood for the girls in family whenever we have a craft day! (Have you ever seen a longer sentence?)
We all got together and did all different sayings on blocks. I did "Home". All you do is paint the blocks, wait for them to dry, pick scrapbook paper and cut to size, glue them onto the wood with a glue stick, cut out the letters (cricket!) ,glue them on and enjoy! I love these because I can use them as fillers if I don't have any other decorations, and they can stay up all year long!
Another thing I made was the topiary. I got the idea and learned how to do it HERE.
