I work with the Cub Scouts in my area and last week we decided to make a present the Cubs could give their mothers. I wanted something cute that the mothers would love to use, yet something easy for the boys to put together. We decided to make these cute Joy Blocks (sorry for the picture quality – the lighting was not great)
I pre-painted the blocks black. Last year we let the boys paint and while they did do a good job it took forever to dry.
I cut a vinyl J and Y out of the metallic red vinyl and covered it with transfer tape.
After a demonstration from me the boys applied the vinyl letters to their blocks.
The boys then tied a red ribbon on the bell. After that was done they wrapped the Joy block set in celophane wrap and curly ribbon. They were very excited to give them to their moms!
