Wood Blocks Craft

Hello, everyone!  

I’m Ginger from Ginger Snap Craftsand, let me tell YOU, I am so excited to be at Lil’ Luna today.  

Kristyn is an amazingly talented lady, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her blog, & I am truly honored to be here!  Yay!  

Over on my blog, I LOVE sharing cute, simple & easy crafts.  

When you see one of my projects, I want you to say, “Yes! I can do that (& I can do it even better!)” 😉  

I hope to share fun ideas that inspire YOU to create along with me. 

Wood Blocks Craft! This tutorial shows you how you can make so many words using only 7 blocks! { lilluna.com }

 Today I’d love to show you how to make 

these super fun & versatile

blocks {that say a lot}.

From these 7 blocks with 4 letters on each one

you can make 15+ seasonal words!!

(I originally got the idea to make these from here.)

You’ll need the following supplies:

a 4×4 cut into 7 square blocks

(You can buy 4×4’s at

Home Depot or Lowes.)

paint & paint brushes

sand paper

*vinyl lettering

*For my vinyl lettering I used a few of my favorite fonts.

I wanted my blocks to be mismatched & kind of fun. :)

FYI: I used a different font on each block.

Fonts I used:

cafe rojo, hula skirt, ck chemistry, elise,

fontmoochers, high tower text, impervious

(All these fonts are free, 

just search for them online 

& they should be really easy to find.)

I slightly sanded my blocks, 

and then I painted them.  

FYI: I also painted each block a different color.

Thought they’d look cute like that. :)

Then I let the paint dry, 

and then I applied the vinyl lettering.

For more detailed vinyl lettering instructions you can go here.

BLOCK 1- H, Y, E, D
BLOCK 2- A, C, R, S
BLOCK 3- R, P, E, T
BLOCK 4- V, N, L, O
BLOCK 5- E, O, M, D 
BLOCK 6- S, M, K, I
BLOCK 7- T, F, B, W 

That’s it!  Super cute & easy! :)

Here are some of the words you can spell:

















Can you think of any others??? :)

Pop over to my blog today, 

& I’ll be sharing the tutorial on how to 

make this easy {established block} 

to go along with my new seasonal blocks.  

They look really cute together! :)

Thank you so much for having me over, Kristyn!


Such a great idea!! Love all the words you can come up with.

    I LOVE LOVE your blog! Thanks for the great ideas!

  8. 13

    Where do you get vinyl letters? do you make them yourself of buy them…any store suggestions?

  9. 14

    I am wondering what size the letters are? I love this and can’t wait to try it.

  10. 15

    Do you know of a place that will custom make the vinyl lettering for you?

  11. 16

    My sister and I just did these block this weekend. We loved them. Thank you so much!

  12. 17

    So what size do the blocks turn out to be when finished? They’re really cute!

    cindy mugford :

    I made the blocks last night and mod podged letters on the blocks. I really like the vinyl letters and am looking at a cricut, I like how the mod podged letters came out for my first set. love the idea and all the words I can make with them.

  14. 19

    Out of curiosity, is there a reason that you only put the letters on 4 of the 6 faces of the blocks? Thanks!

  15. 22

    Great Idea was wondering if after you put on the letters….did you seal the paint with something or just leave it flat?

  16. 23

    where do you get or how do you make the vinyl letters?

  17. 24

    Where do you get vinyl letters, or how do you make vinyl letters?

    • 25

      You can make them with machines like the Cricut or Silhouette (available at all craft stores). Or you can find someone local who sells vinyl. There are also lots of people on etsy who do it. :)

  18. 26

    If you add an 8th block with an S, V, L, and J you can then create Believe, Joy, Thanks, and Christ . At least. I’m sure there are more.

  19. 27

    You can also get Noel out of the existing blocks

  20. 30

    These look amazing! I bought blocks today from hobby lobby as well as all the supplies. However I bought stencils for the letters because I don’t know where or how to get the vinyl letters. Can anyone help me out?

  21. 32

    I just did a similar post! I created some Easter blocks! I really like your idea here and how you can change up the words!

    Did you use treated 4×4’s? I can’t find untreated 4×4 wood. Super cute!!!

  23. 34

    i found a few more words….earth, heart, deer, and storms? not necessarily holiday words but if you like to change it up every so often then these might help a lil?

  24. 35

    I love this! Where do you find vinal lettering?

    • 36

      Hi Casey! You can order custom vinyl lettering from tons of places, but I would search etsy.com. There are many sellers are there who sell it. 😉

  25. 37

    You can also write “merry”

  26. 38

    The word LOVE

  27. 39

    believe is another word :)

  28. 40

    Where do we get the vinyl letters? Do you have a special machine to cut them? Its pretty vague on how to go about this part, thanks.

  29. 41

    Did you use treated wood? If so, how long did you let it dry before painting?

  30. 42

    First: awesome idea and tutorial! I added letters to the 2 empty sides on each block. I’ll list them in a second. We can now spell: Advent, Angels, Lent, Spring, Showers, Summer, America, School, Pool, Leaves, and Haunted. Here’s what I did: block 1- M and G block 2- U and Y block 3- N and S block 4- U and A block 5- R and A block 6- E and O block 7- L and I

  31. 43

    Question.Did you buy a 4×4 post that was pressure treated? I could not find any that were not pressure treated. The process of drying them out was so annoying.

  32. 44

    What size font did you use for the 4×4 blocks?

  33. 45

    Question for you. I have been making wooden block signs since I got my cricut. I paint the blocks. When dry I attach the letters. I then modge podge over the vinyl letter. I have had trouble with some letters puckering up (sticking up in some spots) and all I can do is redo that block. Do you have any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Hope to do this project of yours but want to figure out what I am doing wrong first.

    Thank you for any help you can give me.

    I discovered that you can spell out Liberty. Perfect for the 4th of July.
