Decorative Block

During the Christmas break, Kaylee came and spent a day with me.  We made crafts all afternoon and this is one of the things we made.  She wanted a pink block for her room, so this is what we came up with.
I started out with a set of blocks that I had picked up at Marshall's on sale thinking I could reuse for something.
We spray painted one of the blocks pink.  The letter covered over very easily and it only needed one coat.  
 Next, we used the Storybook Cartridge and white vinyl to cut a K for the front.  We then put a cover of Mod Podge over the letter to seal it in. 
Finally, I tied a piece of sher ribbon around the block and then hot glued a premade bow to the top.  Here is a side view of how the sheer ribbon looks around the block.

So adorable and so easy!! I swear only you would look at those blocks at Marshall's and think I can do something with them. I would look at say they don't have the letters I need!! Brilliant!!
