I had to make a lot this year because of my friend Misty again! Dang you! She makes gifts not only for the regular teachers but for all the music, art, pe teachers too. So I thought, I'd better start doing that too so they'd know we appreciate them as well. I think they turned out so fun!
So they were pretty easy really, I just cut 2x4 to whatever size fit their name best. The lettering was done with my cricut (I love that thing), and it is 2" tall. The lettering, not the cricut. :) You paint the blocks whatever color you want and I just used the wrong end of a paint brush and did the dots all the way around with more paint. Slap the vinyl on when it is dry and then I sprayed them all with a clear varnish spray. You tie tulle around the top block and hot glue a flower on top! Easy peasy right?
I seriously made all of them in like 2 1/2 hours and that included cutting and sanding the wood. And all for just pennies really.
The website where I found the idea is So Lovely Creations. Check her out, she has some super fun ideas for so many things, and she has an etsy shop too. (but you can make it yourself for tons cheaper!) :)
