- 16 wooden blocks found at a thrift or antique store or maybe even your own toy chest
- Digital image with at least 300 ppi resolution cropped square
- Matte photo paper
- X-acto knife and cutting mat
- Glue, rubber cement, or Mod Podge
- Small paintbrush
Step by Step
Step 2: Choose a square format image and resize it to match the length and width of your blocks (in this example it was 7″ x 7″)
Step 3: Print the image on matte photo paper and let it dry. When dry, use a ruler and x-acto knife to trim it to size.
Step 4: Use a small paintbrush to spread glue on the back of the image.
Step 5: Arrange the blocks in a square on top of the print. Position them so they’re lined up neatly as close together as possible. Let rest until the glue is completely dry.
Step 6: Once the glue’s dry, turn the square of blocks right side up. Use a ruler as a guide to cut the blocks apart. Cut as neatly as you can along the line between the blocks.
Step 7: Repeat on as many sides as you like (up to 6 pictures) and enjoy.
