From this to that Friday: Reversible Blocks

I've seen these cute reversible blocks before...lots of variations on Pinterest, but I wanted to come up with my own design. So much more fun that way!

Well, My husband and I got invited to a fun couples party and were supposed to bring a white elephant gift that had a theme of double duty/multi-purpose. I could NOT think of a THING! Usually I can come up with a few ideas, but not this time. Maybe it's bc my brain is just GONE after taking care of 6!!! people that have had the flu in my house over the past two weeks and then my husband had surgery Monday too! I am ex.haust.ed! But my sister reminded me of this idea, so I came up with this!

I think it turned out fun. Think I might distress the edges a bit next time.

So I started with 2x4's and 2x6's. Then cut them to this:
3 different sizes of blocks:

Then with a little paint, a little vinyl, and a little paint on my fingers (haha), I made them into this:
(vinyl on the far right block is chalkboard vinyl)

Wait! Now turn them around and see...the other side!

 Or even change them up a bit!
So much fun making these...I already have others designed and ready to cut out for other holidays!!! What holidays would you use them the most on?

Very cute, but then again that is nothing new. You always come up with great, cute ideas.
Christmas, because that is really the only holiday I decorate a little bit for.
