Team USA Decorative Blocks

It's time to decorate for 4th of July and I always like to display a little something cute on the top of my piano (really it's to keep the cats from laying there). I picked up these 4" pre-printed canvas blocks at a local craft store, along with some Joy 3" Varsity Block Letters.

Using some antiquing cream on the surface gave the blocks the aged look I wanted, then I added a bit of cream paint for highlights.

I pulled random bits and pieces from my stash to decorate each block and give them some visual interest.

Everything, including the letters, was adhered using my low-temp glue gun.

TIP: Did you know that if you have little "strings" from your hot glue on your project that giving them a little shot with a heat gun melts them away?
