First you will need to start out with 4 blocks cut into cubes. (I went to Homedepot and had them cut a 4x8 piece of wood for me.) Make sure to sand the edges for a smooth finish.
After the paint has fully dried you are ready to glue on the squares. Apply a thin coat of modge podge to the paper and the wood. Carefully place your paper on the wood and smooth out any air bubbles. Let it set.
While the modge podge is drying you will need to cut and coil your wire. Cut 16 pieces in varying lengths. First you need to wrap the wire around a small dowel, then wrap it around a larger dowel. (pictured I used the end of a sponge brush and one of my hand whisks)
Now create a spiral using the needle nose pliers to help grap the middle. (sorry no picture of that actual step but you get the idea from above) Next you will want to lay it on a mat and hammer it flat. Do that 15 more times. :)
You should have something like this once you have you finished coiling the wire.
Next drill a hole on the top of your blocks. This is where you will be putting the wire. You don't want to go too deep. (I had my father-in-law help me with the drilling)
After you've drilled the hole you will modge podge on top of the scrapbook paper and all over your block. (this will give it a little sheen after it dries)
Now the vinyl! You will need 4 letters each of the word NOEL. (I ordered my vinyl from Lil' Luna.)
Carefully apply the vinyl lettering to your blocks, on all sides.
After you have added the vinyl you will need to spray it with a matte gloss finishing spray to make sure that the letters adhere to the paper.
And this is your final product. A cute way to display all of those Christmas cards that you will be getting in the mail!
