These were very fun to make. I used blocks of wood about 4 x 4, some were larger and some were angled. I found these in a neighbor’s yard while they were constructing a garage and they were scrap. I sanded the edges (electric sander helped!), painted them with black acrylic paint, then distressed them a little with some sanding paper. I used Mod Podge to glue pictures from collage sheets and added other embellishments that I had. I think they came out really cute!
