Recently a friend had her basement redone and had a bunch of 2×4 scrap pieces left over from that project. Of course when I see something that I might be able to use for a craft project I just can’t pass it up. Much to my husbands dismay, I loaded up the entire back of my truck and brought home as many of those lumber scraps as I could carry! Here is the first project I made.
Wouldn’t this look cute on your fireplace mantle or table at Thanksgiving? Below are the directions to make your own!
4- 2×4 boards cut into the following lengths 10.5 in., 5 in., 4 in., 3 in.
Coordinating pieces of Scrapbook paper (DCWV The Green Stack used here)
Distressing ink (optional)
Paint (Coffee Bean by Plaid used in this project)
Scissors or paper trimmer
Vinyl lettering cut into words “Faith”, “Family”, “Friends” and “We Give Thanks”
Vinyl transfer tape
Corner trimmer (optional)
Sand the block edges to remove rough areas. Paint the blocks brown and allow to dry.
Now it is time for the fun part! Adding the vinyl letters! Separate the vinyl letters from the backing.
Let’s get one more look at the finished project! So cute!
