Halloween has come and gone and it’s officially time to start thinking of all things Christmas. My Christmas style and vibe has certainly grown and evolved over the years and every Christmas, I like to shake things up a bit. 

This year, however, I would like to take it back to the good old days. I am going to be adding a little vintage style to my Christmas decor. There’s no better way to achieve a perfect vintage Christmas other than making it yourself. 

Gather up these supplies and try your hand at theses DIY Vintage Christmas Blocks.  

Items Needed:

1. Using a mitre saw or jig saw cut a 2x4 into blocks of wood in varying lengths. You want the lengths to be different so that when you stack them together you have different heights.

2. Search the web for vintage Christmas cards and then print them out in sizes that will fit on your blocks of wood.

3. Paint your pieces of wood with Americana Decor Outdoor Living Paint in LadyBug. Feel free to get creative with this step and use whatever color of paint suits your style.

4. Using Americana Decou-Page, apply a healthy layer to a block of wood. Lay your picture onto the Decou-Page and smooth out any air bubbles with something like a credit card or ruler.
