Hey crafty friends! Today, I’m sharing a how you can DIY Farmhouse Stamped Books to add to your home decor. These mini stacked “books” are great for book shelves and tiered trays. So, let’s get started!
DIY Farmhouse Stamped Books
If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek of this craft from the weekend. 🙂 These stamped books are so easy to create and best of all you can customize them with any saying of your choice! You can even make a set with all the names of your family members, how cute would that be? I decided to add a part of one of my favorite bible scriptures, which serves as a nice daily reminder for us all.
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
What you will need to make the stamped books:
Wood blocks (I purchased these at Michaels for $1 each, they came cut and ready to paint)
White Chalk Paint
Start by painting all sides of the blacks with 1-2 coats of white chalk paint. You can use black chalk paint if you want, and just use white paint for the letters for contrast. Let dry.
Once dry, pick out the saying of your choice and line up the alphabet stamps. I started with the last word first. Starting with the last letter of the word, brush some black paint onto the stamp and press the stamp lightly on to the block to make the impression. Gently lift the stamp straight up to limit smudging.
Continue this process on all the blocks to make your saying. If you have any bleeding or smudging, simply cover the mistakes with a little bit of white paint on a fine brush.
Stack the blocks and tie them with twine for the finishing touch! Add them to your shelf or tiered tray. These pair nicely with farmhouse decor!
I hope you are inspired to create your own set of stamped blocks! Be sure to check out my DIY Farmhouse Planter that pairs great with this project!
