St. Patricks Day "Lucky blocks"

Lucky Blocks

This project was super fun, easy, and a little time consuming... only because my baby was jealous of all the attention these blocks were getting! I've never decorated for St. Patricks Day in the past, but after seeing all these cute ideas in the blogging world, I figured this was a great excuse to make some cute blocks :)

Supplies I used:

4x4 cut up into 4 in. cubes ( The nice man in Home Depot cut them for me :))
Rust-oleum Leafy Green spray paint

Cute scrapbook paper
Modge Podge
Time Holtz Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink
Folk Art- Buttercream acrylic paint
Chip board letters
Paint brush
Sponge brush
Glue gun


1. Cut up wood

2. Spray blocks
3. Cut up paper
4. Distress edges with ink

5. Apply Modge Podge to blocks and then apply paper. Smooth out bubbles. After it's dry, apply Modge Podge over the entire block.

6. Paint letters & let dry. Glue letters to block.

That's it! Have a good day! :)
