Looking for a quick and easy gift for grandma? Look no further than this cute and customizable decoupage craft from Jamielyn Nye. You can use original photos or make copies for these Gift Blocks for Grandma.

Gift Blocks for Grandma


  • Wooden blocks
  • Paint
  • Vinyl
  • Distress ink
  • Photos
  • Mod Podge


  1. I started out with a 4x4x8. Then I cut the blocks ( and when I say I, I mean the guys at home depot lol) down to 3.5 in. The base I had cut to 7 inches.

  2. After I gave each block a couple coats of paint,I printed out the vinyl with my Silhouette. You could really do any variation of colors. I chose a more neutral color to match their houses.
