About a month ago, I did a guest post on View from the Fridge and I'm so excited to sharing it with you all today! I've seen these blocks around Pinterest and am always so drawn to them. So, today I'll be share how to create your own Painted Geometric Blocks!
*Package of Wooden Blocks (mine are from Hobby Lobby)
Various acrylic paints
I started off using a pencil to lightly draw in my lines.
By the time, I moved to the next side, I just free handed it. (Note, to keep all the blocks perfectly lined up on each side, Once done painting, turn all blocks in the same exact direction. Otherwise, your pretty patterns will never quite match up correctly.)
Who would have guessed? I am completely in love with a pink and orange combo!
Some sides I painted very simple and after they dried I used a white paint pen to add more pattern. You will see below, that I added simple crosses to these white, gray and aqua blocks.
Pretty summer colors.
Here are all sides of my blocks. Which pattern is your favorite? I'm not sure I could decide!
My kids instantly were drawn to these.
So simple and so adorable. I was going to let my kids play with them, but now I think I may keep them for myself!
