Table Top Centerpiece...

Here's a really easy craft- it would be perfect to do with a bunch of girls on a craft night because the supplies are minimal and the prep is pretty simple. All you need is a 2 x 4 and access to a table saw. I had my father-in-law cut these for me in 4", 5", and 6" blocks. I pre-marked them with a pencil, and he cut the whole 2 x 4 in just a few minutes. After that, I gave a quick sand to the ends to get rid of any sharp edges, then painted the blocks and wrote the letters. I originally saw them in a boutique downtown (they were pink and green with yellow letters and said "SPRING") I couldn't resist the chance of making a set of my own. You could get really creative with the season, sayings, or even use names on them for a kids bedroom. Use glitter or ribbon or whatever other embellishments you want and display them on any table or buffet for your next gathering!
