Mod Podge Valentine Blocks

Mod Podge Valentine Blocks
Valentine's Day is about a month away–time to put the winter decor away and start decorating in pink and red! I love putting a few little touches up to celebrate Valentine's Day. These Mod Podge Valentine Blocks are a quick & frugal project that you can do with your kids, or get a group of girlfriends together for a Girls' Night In.

Valentine Block Supplies

If you haven't used Mod Podge before, a small surface like these wood blocks is a great way to get started. Choose premade 4×4 wood blocks from the craft store, or head to your local Home Depot/Lowe's and have a 2×4 cut down for you. It will cost a lot less (mine was $1.92), and you'll get a ton of blocks! You will have to sand them, though.

Materials I used:

  • 4×4 wood blocks
  • Craft paint
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Mod Podge

Coat each block with your craft paint–any color, but I used pink. No need to fully coat the faces because they will be covered with scrapbook paper.

Paint Valentine Blocks

Next, cut your scrapbook paper to fit each 4×4 side. I cut mine just smaller, so that the pink border would show. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the face of the block, lay down the paper, and smooth it out with your fingers or an old credit card to push out the bubbles.

Once that layer of Mod Podge is dry, embellish your blocks with letters, hearts, or other decorations. I covered both sides with Valentine colors since I knew the backs would show. Coat each block with two thin coats of Mod Podge to seal them. Then, enjoy as decor year after year!

Cute. If you painted the blocks red, you could put Christmas paper on the back and put either the word joy, hope, or love on that side and then get double the use!

Those are so cute. Could be a fun project to do with the kids too.
