St. Patrick’s Day is approaching and of course that means it’s time to decorate for another holiday. If you’re anything like me, you’ve seen those super cute wooden blocks all over Pinterest that are just perfect for the tiered tray or even to have laying out with your decor on a table. I just couldn’t bring myself to spend the money on them (I know, I know) so I had a light bulb moment and decided to try my hand at making them myself. I forgot to take photos of all the fun of actually putting them together but it is fairly simple.
Let’s get to making these super cute wooden blocks!
I had my brother in law cut me 3 pieces of wood that are about 3 quarters wide and about 4 inches long. I then took some wood glue and glued them together. Making sure to clamp them down and let it sit overnight basically to make sure the glue was all dry. My dad then sanded down the sides a little make it look like books for me and then I spray painted it white. Then came the fun part, heading to Cricut to create the SVG for the words.
I wrote out Happy St. Patrick’s Day and then cut it on permanent vinyl. Transferred it to transfer tape, made sure to cut out each piece separately before transferring it to the side of the “books.” There you have it! A super cute little decor piece that you can do yourself and it even has the Rae Dunn feel to go with all my favorite St. Patrick’s Day Dunn pieces.
Before setting it up with all of my decor, I went to Hobby Lobby and grabbed some super cute ribbon to tie around it and really give off that St. Patrick’s Day vibe. You could easily grab twine as well and it could be more of the Farmhouse vibe with the St. Patrick’s Day decor. So many possibilities here and also you can grab the ribbon from any craft store.
I had originally cut too much ribbon so I was able to take the leftover and make a small bow and then glued it on top. Definitely gave a sweet, girly vibe which I loved.
Below is how I styled it with my St. Patrick’s Day decor!
