Valentine Decor DIY {Love Blocks}

I’ve been a little MIA the last few weeks but we’ve got a bunch of projects in the works and we dechrismafied the house this weekend. It’s always sad taking the tree down…it looks so empty in here. 😦 So now it’s on to some Valentine’s Day projects.

Valentine Decor DIY {Love Blocks}

These were easy to make and I love how personalized they are with the photos of us.

I ordered these wooden blocks from Amazon.com and just painted them using some acrylic paint I already had.

I then cut some pieces of scrapbook paper to the size of the block and used Mod Podge to attach the paper to two opposite sides of the blocks.  I had printed my photos in sepia and then cut them to fit the size of the blocks and used the Mod Podge to attach them.

After the Mod Podge had dried, I rubbed some distress ink along the edges of the blocks to give it a little bit of an aged look.

I printed out my letters and used the second technique from this post to get the lettering onto the blocks.

That’s it! Simple, easy, personalized, DIY decor!
