King James Version (KJV)
Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
Here is another cute and easy Christmas craft. I made this one at one of my Mothers of Preschool meetings and it turned out so good! These Noel blocks are nice enough to give as gifts too. It would also be cute done as a decoration for a baby’s room using baby themed paper, ribbon and spelling out BABY instead of Noel!
What you’ll need:
4 unfinished wood blocks (2”x2”)
2” decorative paper squares (at least 14 squares if you don’t do all sides of the blocks, only the sides seen!)
Stick on letters spelling NOEL (usually found in the scrapbook section with the stickers!)
Choose your decorative Christmas themed papers (found in the scrapbook aisle, or you can use wrapping paper!) and cut into 2” squares to fit your blocks. Lightly coat the back of the paper with mod podge and stick to the blocks. Now if you want to save time and effort, but have to think a bit, you can figure out which sides of the blocks will never show (such as the bottoms) and not paper those sides. Otherwise, feel free to paper all sides of the blocks!
Once you have all your papers adhered to your blocks, stack your blocks as shown in the photo. I actually used a small dollop mod podge to glue my blocks together so they don’t shift later. Attach your letters by removing the adhesive back and sticking them on like a sticker. Then coat the entire set, including over the letters with a thin coat of mod podge and let dry.
Wrap your ribbon around the blocks set, tie into a pretty bow, and you’re done!
Note: I didn’t do it on mine, but this decoration looks great from all sides so you could put NOEL letters on the back side also and have a two-sided decoration! It would look great sitting in a pass-through window or on the dining table where it can be seen from multiple angles!
Before doing projects like this, I didn’t realize that anyone uses mod podge anymore, but it really does still come in useful for cute crafts. I hope you enjoy this one and add it to your Christmas decorating to-do list!
