This DIY decoupage wood Christmas block is loaded with soft, sweet, vintage and very shabby chic charm. A precious accent piece which would look good in most decors, this cute block comes with a tinkly surprise! Let me explain…
It’s time to start your holiday crafting
It’s Christmas in July everywhere else, and Glitter and Bonbons is no exception. Because in the crafting world, NOW is the time to get busy on all the gifts and home decor items you want to make, yes? Yes? YES??
I know, I know today is the last day of July, but that’s neither here nor there. It’s time to get busy on holiday crafting, including everything from Halloween to New Year’s.
Being a crafter is especially fun during the holidays because the craft stores are always coming out with new goodies. Or at least goodies that I haven’t played with before. Which makes them new to me. And this year I’m enchanted with jingle bells. More on that in a moment.
I’m also enchanted with blocks, and I do love playing with my snazzy new Dremel rotary tool. I wore the last one out playing with blocks “grownup style,” but I was always very frustrated when trying to use the accessories because the instructions were poorly written. I never did figure out how to attach the other sanding belts. So I finally broke down and bought a whole new tool with, I’m sure, clearer instructions. I can hope.
And while I was at it, I bought a 4″x4″ cedar post at the big box hardware store and asked the lumber guy to cut it down into 4″ sections. Alas, I was so excited to start my project I forgot to take a picture of the naked block. Nothing exciting to see there, folks.
