The One With The Photo Craft

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend. We were invited to go to a few different cabins with family, but decided to stay at home and take it easy since we had such a crazy week. We're still recovering :)

I mentioned in my last post that we had 2 bridal showers for 2 of my soon-to-be sisters-in-law. I was in charge of decorating for one of them, since I had taken their engagement pics, so I made these fun photo blocks. I made one for the other shower too for a gift, but I forgot to take pictures of that one. They are similar to Paige's blocks I made when I was pregnant.

All I did was sand the square blocks down, then stained them, then modge podged the pictures on. They're so easy, affordable, and it was fun because they doubled as a gift that she could take home.

After the shower, my brother called me to thank me for them (I was worried they'd be dorky, but even guys seemed to think they were cool) and asked if they could use them as decorations at their wedding. Awh shucks!

Maybe after I have more kids I'll make a block for each kid to put out in our family room. They're kid friendly, I'm not sure kids could ruin them... unless they drew all over them...
