I am hoping to bring a new series to the blog this fall - five minute projects. Super simple DIYs that really take the time it takes to buy supplies. Ideally, these posts will take me longer to write than the projects themselves.
Jo-anns has "letterpress wood blocks" on sale right now. This C was $2.50. They are a cute size (5x3.75) and you can't beat the price, but the balsa wood letter did not look very authentic.
I used an old rag and some leftover stain to fancy it up. The trickiest part was getting it in the small creases. But really - two minutes. Tops. And even though the wood was cheap, I was impressed that it took the stain so well.
I'm a fan. Too bad they didn't have ampersands...
