Leon Blocks

No that's not a typo. My mom has some letters that spell Noel. She has put them out for many, many Christmases now and they have kinda become a little joke. My oldest brother loves to switch them around when she is not looking so they spell Leon. She will fix them and it just keeps going back and forth. You can't let anyone see you switch them though!! So I decided it was time for me to carry on the tradition and make myself some Leon blocks. I saw this tutorial on Emily's blog and followed it exactly. We will see how long it takes Ross to switch them! We are off to pick up my other brother and SIL. We are headed to a Christmas performance put on by all of the local church choirs. I can't wait to listen to some great holiday music!

Paper: Basic Grey Figgy
Paint: white Craft Smart - Michael's
Rub-on letters: Paper Studio - Kade Alphabet
Other: Modpodge, SU sanding blocks, Clear Acrylic Sealer - Matte, wood blocks from Hobby Lobby (a pack of 6 for $2.99)
