Pink Saturday

This has some pink in it! I was inspired to make it after I saw the one Maria created over at Tater-Tot Spot .

1. Take board and cut it into desired sizes with a jigsaw
2. Trace blocks onto scrapbook paper and cut out (I chose colors that coordinated with my living room)
3. Modpodge papers on blocks
4. Sand edges of paper with fine sanding block
5. Paint blocks desired color and use the edge of a brush or your sponge brush to paint just on the edges of the paper so that it fades in
6. Make letters (if you are lucky enough to have a Cricut- then GO YOU!, I on the other hand had to make my letters with a paint pen, though Sharpie would work too)
7. Decide on quote you want and add the words to the edges of the blocks
8. Add embellishments
9. If your jigsaw cuts angled lines so that your blocks can't stand then go to Walmart and buy some of the dohickeys from the hardware aisle where you can just attach them to the back of the blocks and hang them on the wall
10. ENJOY!

Oh, and I laid wax paper down on my table to protect the surface and so the paint wouldn't stick :).


  1. Ohh, your wall hanging is lovely. You did a great job..I'm wondering if I could make one for myself. Happy Pinks and have a great weekend.
