This year I thought it would be fun to print some activities to help the … [Read more...]

Pray Often Blocks

Pray Often Blocks

Today I want to show you my wood and vinyl Pray Often blocks.   Neat, right?! This simple home decor is made from 3 different sized stacked wood blocks- 2 blocks of 4x6" (for the ends, P and Y), 2 blocks of 3.5x2" (for the middle top, R and A) and 1 block of  1.5x4" (for the middle bottom, Often). Paint them black, cut your vinyl in any font and color you desire, and apply to your wood. Because it is painted wood, you can take a piece of sandpaper and distress the edges. You … [Read more...]
