We decided to make these cute Joy Blocks (sorry for the picture quality – the lighting was not great)
I prepainted the blocks black. Last year we let the boys paint and while they did do a good job it took forever to dry.
I cut a vinyl J and Y out of the metallic red vinyl and covered it with transfer tape.
After a demonstration from me the boys applied the vinyl letters to their blocks.
The boys then tied a red ribbon on the bell. After that was done they wrapped the Joy block set in cellophane wrap and curly ribbon.
They were very excited to give them to their moms!
