wood blocks

With the help of my dear hubby, an old 4x4 was transformed into a mantle decoration.  He sawed the 4x4 into 4" wood blocks, which I primed and painted white.  Then I taped off the front and made a chalkboard square with a couple coats of chalkboard paint.  Red and white bistro chalk markers were used to write the message.

After Christmas, I'm going to shabby them up a bit more by sanding and painting the edges, and then I'll use them for other decorations.  I've thought of messages like:
  • give thanks
  • let it snow
  • believe
  • look who's 3
Any more ideas?
