Shorewest’s DIY Project: Photo Blocks

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather


Materials Needed:
• Wood Blocks (You can cut the wood yourself, or buy them pre-cut.)
• Photos
• Mod Podge Matte Finish
• Paint Brush

The size of the wood blocks and photos all depends on what size you want them. You can go smaller, like coasters, or bigger, like 8×10. Once you determine what size you want, print your photos the same size. You can make a couple, or you can make lots.

1. Tear about one inch on top and bottom to leave a jagged white edge. (It’s recommended to print two sets, in case there’s a mistake.)

2. Add an even coat of Mod Podge to the wood using your paint brush. Attach the photo, starting from the corner and smoothing out, making sure there are no bumps.

3. Once the photo is attached to the wood block, apply another coat of Mod Podge over the photo. Pay close attention to the corners of the photos and the sides of the block. You want to make sure you glue the corners down, but don’t want the Mod Podge to dry on the side of the block.

4. Add a second coat if you didn’t cover any spots or notice the photo isn’t sticking.

5. Ta-Da! Your blocks are done and your project is complete.
