Wooden Block Houses

One night on a trip to Joanne's with my 3 sister-in-laws and mother-in-law. One of my sister-in-laws was talking about these cute block houses that her mother-in-law had at her house. (That is a mouth full of in-laws) She said how cute they were and what great decorations and toys they made. She mentioned having my husband try and help her do something similar. A light bulb went off. I wanted to make them for her birthday which was months away, but thought it would be plenty of time to make them. Well it turns out I was wrong. Here is the final product.

These were the originals. I borrowed them from her mother-in-law so I could recreate them.

What I will tell you about this project is that even though I started them months before her birthday, she didn't get them until months later. It was one of the toughest projects I have taken on. With the help of my husband and some genius suggestions from his dad we finished them. The labor of love was so worth it though!
