Blocks and Trees on Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Welcome to the party. I am so glad you stopped by. I finally finished decorating for Christmas and mailed my packages today. Tonight I am doing my cards. Hubby is out of town on business so I am getting so much done. 

Still deciding on what cookies and desserts I am going to make. I haven't been eating much dessert lately so not sure I want lots of desserts around. 

How is your decorating and shopping going? Do you bake?

Last week I share my Winter Wonderland Sled Tray with you and on that sled I had made these mold, block trees. I wanted to share with you how to make your own.



On to the party!

Molds, Blocks and Trees

Molds, Blocks and Trees

As part of my Winter Wonderful Tray, I added these trees to my sled. They were quite easy to create since I had all of the materials on hand.

What you will need to make these Christmas Tree Blocks:

vintage molds or any metal tins 
vintage blocks or wooden blocks 
Christmas trees from Dollar Tree
paint
modge podge 
glitter

This is what I wanted to create:

1. Paint your molds or metal tins. If you don't have any vintage molds, you can find metal tins at Hobby Lobby. I sanded them lightly for the paint to adhere.

Then I sprayed them with some chalk paint I had. 

2. I was lucky to find three letters that I could use, J and O. The Y was on one but it was not raised so I just painted over it.

You could always find some wooded blocks or make your own. You could also use round pieces of wood. You can fins those at Hobby Lobby or cut up some tree branches. lol!

3. Once the molds and the blocks were ready, I glued them all together and let them dry. 

Then I got out my Modge Podge and using a paint brush that is about 3/4 inch wide, brushed it on the mold and the block. I also brush some strokes up the tress. 

Then sprinkled everything with glitter and let it dry.

It is a nice reminder for me since these blocks belonged to my son. I remember him playing with them.

Christmas is Coming and You're The Star

Christmas is Coming and You're The Star 

Happy Monday! Can you believe that 2 weeks from today is Christmas. I don't know why but is seems like Christmas was far away and then all of a sudden, it will be here soon. Are you ready? I finished decorating the tree yesterday and that was my last thing to do. The house is done.

I am still thinking about the baking part. Not sure how much I am doing this year. I always make lots of cookies to share, but think I will cut that number down. I had too many left over last year. 

What are your baking plans?
