Welcome to day 13 of my 25 Days of Craftmas series!  Wood block letters are really easy to make and they look so cute when they’re finished. But, my letters would tip over all the time. Sometimes, just walking into a room would cause enough movement that my blocks would fall over. So, I decided to solve this problem by adding hinges and connecting all the letters.

I thought this projects was pretty easy one, even screwing on all the hinges went really quick.  And, I think it turned out super cute!

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO

You’ll need 6 wood blocks that are approx. 3.5″ x 5″.  Once you’ve got your blocks cut and sanded, it’s time to paint.  You’ll want to paint 2 red, 2 dark green, and 2 light green.

While the paint is drying, open the design in your cutting software.  Size the letters to about 4.25″ tall.  Keep the width proportional.  Cut out the vinyl, weed away the excess, and apply transfer tape.

Remove any paint debris or dust before applying the vinyl letters.  The great thing about these letters is that they are a little bit wonky, so if you don’t get them on straight, no one will notice.

Use mini hinges to attach the J to the I  –  the N to the G  –  and the L to the E.  I used an extra hinge as a spacing guide, so all the hinges would be the same distance from the top or bottom..  The hinges go in the wood really easily, so I just used a screwdriver to attach them.Make this darling Christmas sign with this easy to follow tutorial.
