Day 18- Letter Blocks

Continuing this weeks random theme of sign inspiration, here is another idea!

I made these little letter blocks right before one of the shows I did. I ran out of time to make as many as I wanted, and haven’t made any more, but I’ve still been selling a lot of them! It’s been something fun for kids to look through to find their own initials while their parents are shopping the rest of my signs!

I made these using stickers (see how to here).

Sorry the picture is so bright!! I keep them in this divider that was originally a shelf that I spray painted to look shabby white and use it at sales along with these blocks in it.

A customer asked if I could make larger blocks in her last name, in the same green and red, but with some cream blocks too and brown letters. This is what I came up with for her…

Love it! Put them on top of my fence, because I’ve realized outside is where I get my best pictures of what my signs actually look like! It was a bright day though, so they really aren’t THAT shiny!!

Up close look…

I didn’t make these larger ones with stickers but created my own stencils with this method.

Soooo many possibilities!!!
