Recycled wood scraps - American Flag blocks - Joy's Life

Welcome to 
monthly blog hop!

starting @ Joy's Life 

This month, the team is featuring red, white & blue projects.  If you came from Kendra's blog you're in the right spot.  If you need to start at the beginning, hop back to Joy's blog!

Here's my creation -

trash to treasure!

wood scraps,
Joy's Life stamps - Holiday Occasions
Krylon spray paint

I made additional white blocks for other holidays.
(I made one for Veteran's day too, but smeared the paint...I'll have to sand it off and try again!)

I'm the last stop on the hop, so on behalf of the Joy's Life team I would like to thank you all for taking the time to hop with us this month!

You can find all Joy's Life stamps here!

  7. Maria,
    I love this so much! I was going to do a USA block project but didn't at the last minute. However, I was going to use Valspar paint. I never thought to use Krylon spray paint! You're so smart! It also never occurred to me to stamp on the blocks. Genius! Thanks so much for sharing this great project. I love it!
    Super Hugs,
