DIY Photo Blocks


With a little muscle and a delicate paw you too can make one of a kind photo blocks. This is a great project to make with your kids, for a gift or a great way to display multiple photos. Here is what you need and the steps to take to make your own photo blocks.

3 4x4 Wooden Blocks
Sander/Sand Paper
Paint Brush
Mod Podge (Glossy)

* With help from my humans, they went to Home Depot and had them cut three 4x4 blocks of wood.
*Once home we sanded down all the surfaces, corners and edges of the blocks.
*Using white wash colored paint I put about 3 or 4 coats of paint on each block. The wood soaked the paint up so fast. You apply as much or as little as you please.
*Next I went through a stack of photos and picked out my favorite ones. As you can see I tore the photos to give it a ruff look. You can cut, rip, or tear them.
*Finally, I brushed glossy Mod Podge on the bottom a photo and placed it on one of the sides. Pressing it firmly to the block making sure I got all the air bubbles out. Then, I took the Mod Podge and brushed a thin layer over the photo and the entire side of the block. This will help secure the photo to the block.
