If you’ve never seen stacker blocks, I can tell you this – most people love them! They’re fun and simple to make using vinyl lettering, are a beautiful decor piece, and can be done to match your decor for any holiday throughout the year. We decided to show you some stacker blocks we made for easter this year.
We got some scrap wood from a building site that was going to be thrown away (my uncle owns a site…and donated the wood). You can either get scraps, or buy some from a home improvement store. I chose 2×4 and 2×6 pieces of differing lengths (see image). I then painted them in pastel easter colors…sanded down the edges to give the blocks an antique / distressed look. Next we measured the workable surface of each block…laid them out from start to finish with the intent to create the word “Easter.” We had 6 blocks of differing sizes, laid them out how we wanted and assigned each a letter – e, a, s, t, e, and r. Next, we cut the vinyl letters out to fit the size of the block on which we placed it. We applied the letters to each block, and voila! We have a fun and beautiful table piece for the upcoming easter holiday.
