glam blocks

We’ve got another super easy handmade gift idea for you all today. Keeping with the theme of gifts coming from the kids, but with a touch of class: Glam Blocks! Thanks to Carousel NY for teaming up with us on this post! Here’s what you’ll do:

To start you’ll need unfinished wood blocks. There’s a few ways to accomplish this task:  you can buy them at the craft store, or have wood cut at the hardware store! Just make sure you sand the blocks before using them if you have them cut. From this point we painted them by taping off the down the diagonal, using acrylic paint. Let the blocks dry completely and then grab the Modge Podge (or mix Elmer’s glue with half the amount of glue in ounces of water, 6 ounce bottle of glue = 3 ounces of water. Cover the painted triangle with Modge Podge and then here’s where the kiddos can help!

We used silver and then gold glitter and had the boys cover the Modge-Podged area. Shake off the excess and let it dry completely! Once its dry you can layer on another coat of Modge Podge to seal the glitter a bit better.

Like we mentioned earlier, we teamed up with the new online kids boutique, Carousel NY for today’s craft. We really can’t get enough of their site, it’s filled with fashion forward brands we’ve come to love like Shampoodle, the Brand, yporque, and Loud Apparel.

Here’s some items we’re loving for the boys!

    Love those! I would just be annoyed by all the glitter that I would inevitably find everywhere, after it rubs off 😉

    I agree about the glitter but if you could put some kind of clear coat or varnish over it that should/would help I would think. Love the idea for little ones for sure. 🙂

    We’ve had pretty good luck with the top coat of Modge Podge but yeah, I think you’re right Autum. Something a little heavier would be smart!
