We all have favorite photos of our family, children, pets and even vacation photos that we cherish and love to look at time and time again. With this craft project, you can memorialize your favorite photos with DIY Photo Blocks that make a charming and decorative addition to your decor.

Memories tend to fade from our minds and now you can have your favorite photos on display to enjoy from any room in your home. These also make awesome gifts that your friends and family will cherish for a long time.

This project from the ‘stories by me blog‘ is really easy and very versatile so you can customize your photo blocks anyway you choose. These Photo Blocks also incorporate lettering which adds an elegant touch to your finished product.

What you will need:

3 – 6 wood 3.5″ blocks (depending on the word you choose).
3 coordinating scrapbook papers to match theme (more to cover top and bottoms of block)
Decoupage Glue – We like Mod Podge Matte Glue
Printer -black ink works best for printing letters
Foam Brush
Sanding Block (Not really needed, but it goes a long way to saving your hands during the sanding process!)
Distress Ink or Chalk
Finishing Spray
9, 12 or 18 pictures formatted to fit your blocks.


  • Decide what word you want to display.
  • Pick coordinating papers that complement the word.
