How to make these super adorable Arise and Shine Forth Blocks! Very easy and your young women will love them!

I’m so excited to share a super easy, quick and inexpensive craft for Young Women.

Today, I will be showing you how to make some YW Arise and Shine Forth Blocks perfect for this years Young Women’s Theme.

After seeing how popular my YW Prints were last year as well as the Temple Blocks, I thought I would combine the two and come up with these blocks that cost about $1.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Here is how you can make them too. 🙂

SUPPLIES:

-Wood block – about 5x7x1.5 inches thick. They are the same pieces of wood that I used for the temple blocks

-Prints

-Mod Podge and foam brush

-Craft Paint or Spray Paint

-Sand Paper

-Ribbon/Tulle

DIRECTIONS:

1. Begin by painting your wood and let dry. Sand edges if you like the distressed look.

2. Save {by clicking on the image, and then right-clicking and saving}, print and cut images to be 4×6 size. I recommend that you get these laser-printed in case you want to mod podge over the top. You can also print these with a regular color printer but I recommend not mod podging over the top or it could smear. To mod podge, apply a thin layer of mod podge to the block and put on image, pressing down all over so it does not bubble.

3. Save {by clicking on the image, and then right-clicking and saving}, printing and then punching the scripture image with a 1 inch or 1.5 inch circle or scalloped circle punch. I saved my images to word, and then printed.

    I actually used spray paint for the blue and pink just cuz I was short on time. The blue and pink I was going to use was Regency Blue and Valentine Pink from Apple Barrel. Hope that helps. 🙂 XO

I made one of these in blue. It looks awesome. One of the other girls wanted it too in pink. I am having trouble getting it to come out as pink like one the website here. It comes out red. So I went to the local office max and it was no different there. They tried to go a shade lighter which only made it look like rose red. Help!!

    Lil' Luna

    Send me an email and I’ll make one of a very pail pink which will hopefully come out as just regular pink. Some printers tend to come out darker. 🙂 ([email protected])
