Painted block presents
This is a very easy and inexpensive decoration for the holidays. And a very cute one, too : ) For this project all you'll need is some wood, paint, fabric and twine. You can cut up some wood you have lying around or go to Home Depot and buy some. Then paint them green and red (you can probably figure out what you need to do just by looking at the picture, but I guess I'll write them out anyway). After the paint dries, scratch the edges with some sandpaper. I also painted some small pieces of wood with a hole drilled through them to be the tags. Cut out long strips of material and use them as ribbon for the presents. Then attach the tags with some twine. Set on a piano, table, dresser, mantle, or under your tree. This could also be a fun project for kids... let them paint the blocks, then wrap with fabric ribbon and put them in their own bedrooms or under the tree. Enjoy!
