DIY Photo Blocks
Not only are these blocks cute and thoughtful, but they are also super easy to make! Make a quick run to your craft store and for less than $10, you’ll have everything you need to start creating! Here is how to do it-
- 6 printed pictures that are the size of 9 blocks put together – mine was about 4″ x 4″
- Mod Podge
- sponge brush
- 9 wooden cubes
- ribbon + tulle for wrapping, optional
On the back of your pictures, use a ruler and a pencil to measure and mark the size of each block
Cut each square so your picture is now 9 separate pieces.
Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge on each block, then stick a piece of the picture to it.
Add another thin layer of Mod Podge over the image to seal it to the cube.
Repeat for all other 5 pictures on the 5 other sides of each cube, then let this dry completely.
Once your blocks are dry, you can wrap them up with some tulle or ribbon and give it to your mom!
These photo blocks are also a fun toy for kids – Addie loved playing with this block full of her cousins!
