4th of July Pallet Blocks

4th of July Blocks

I started to decorate with holiday items for Memorial Weekend. I made some stars and flags for a centerpiece. You can see those here

I decided to add to my collection by making some wooden blocks.  I made one blue with a star and 2 with red stripes. (they look on the pink side but are really red)

These were easy to make. I used pallet boards to make mine. You can use any scrap of wood since they are not very large. 

I used one board cut from a pallet to cut all three of my blocks. 


How to make 4th of July blocks:
pallet board
paint
painters tape
washers
twine

1. Pallet boards are the right size.  You can use any board you have and make them whatever size you want, but mine are 3 1/2  X 5. Cut 3 pieces

2. I cut the corners off of each piece at one end. I cut them at 45 degrees. Sand lightly.

3. I painted one of the blocks blue and then used some sand paper to rough it up. I painted both sides.

4. I cut a star out of card stock paper and then traced it on the blue block. I painted the star white. 

5. For the red stripe ones, I painted the blocks white on both side. Once dried, I taped of some stripes and then painted them red. Once they were dried and the tape was removed, I sand the blocks a little.

6. I drilled a hole near the top so I could add twine. I found these rusted washers so I glued them to one side. (I did not put them on both sides)

They were easy to make and make a great addition to my 4th f July decorations.
