Modern DIY photo blocks (for decoration or gifts!)

You paint these DIY photo blocks to fit any color your child’s room or nursery and display on a shelf! They also make great gifts.
I’ve seen all the different ways wood photo blocks on Pinterest. It’s a fun gift and a unique way to display photos. But when my 3 girls recently have some nice black-and-got-and-white pictures taken, I had an idea, a modern version of the wooden photo blocks!
babies and toddlers will love mixing and matching the faces, as you stack the blocks. Paint to match any color, your child’s room or nursery and display on a shelf! These DIY photo blocks would be a simple Christmas or baby shower gift as well.

Modern DIY photo blocks
Here’s what you need:

Black and white photos
- painted wooden blocks
Mod smorgasbord of Matte or gloss will work

step 1: Cut your black and photos.
step 2: Cut in the middle of the photo, so that fits a half on each block.
step 3: Apply Mod smorgasbord on the back of the photos, and then on the top. You can either cut out the photo after it is dry, or do this before the Mod-smorgasbord.
and paste the top and bottom parts on the other sides of the block, so that the photo looks like it wraps around the block.
step 4: Add a couple of layers of Mod-smorgasbord and let them dry completely.
This DIY photo blocks are so cute, and even my 7-year-old had fun mixing the faces.
