While relaxing tonight, I decided to make a quick fall craft. I dug through the miscellaneous craft supplies and found four of these wooden blocks. The letters could easily use a Cricut machine or calligraphy pens but I do not have either at my place so I decided to hand paint the letters. Next time I would definitely use a calligraphy pen for clearer lines. While working on this, I thought of how I would like to improve my lettering skills. Comment below with what you would recommend to learn and improve!


  • 4 Wooden Blocks (pictured: about 2 in. x 2 in.)
  • CraftSmart Stain: Walnut
  • CraftSmart Chalk Paint: Burnt Orange
  • Foam Brush
  • Fine Tip Paint Brush


Begin by staining the blocks with the walnut stain per the directions on the bottle. Then use the fine tip paint brush to carefully add letters to the blocks.
