While in a craft/antique store several weeks ago saw block similar to the ones I made. They wanted $12.95 for the blocks. I thought I could make these.
I had Chuck cut scrap wood into the size I wanted. I then painted them orange. I printed out the wording in Word. I then placed the letter on top of the block and traced over the letters. It left enough of an imprint that I was able to fill in the letters with a sharpie. Not perfect, but that just ads to the homespun effect. The total cost of these.... FREE! I used materials I had on hand.
