I'm beginning to thing about
Today I'm repurposing Jenga blocks
into Christmas ornaments...
You know the game, the one where you pile up all the
blocks then pull some out of the middle trying to keep
the tower from toppling down.
I had a collection of these blocks from a yard sale...
Truth be told, I'm not a big game player so
today I'm doing what I do best...
the Jenga blocks into something else!
I drilled a couple of holes into the top of each one...
Then gave them a quick coat of white primer.
Using my Silhouette machine I printed out the words
love, peace, and hope and adhered them to each block.
Each block got a coat of ASCP primer red paint over the top
of the vinyl lettering. When the paint was dry I removed the vinyl.
Each block was then sanded to distress, and
waxed with dark wax to give it an aged look.
I inserted a 16 gauge wire through the drilled holes...
And the ornaments are ready!
Three ornaments... peace, love, and hope
are packaged and ready for Christmas.
Ten packages sold out at the craft fair!
Do you sell at craft sales?
Do you think it is worth the work?
