For my daughter's first Birthday, Pink Elephant Birthday Party,  I made Name Blocks as a party decoration. My son is about to turn one so I thought it was only fair if I made him some name blocks for his Birthday party. I didn't have my blog at the time of my daughters first Birthday so I am going to do this tutorial using my son's name blocks. The name blocks are pretty self explanatory but just incase I'll go ahead and tell you how I made them.


Supplies:

  • Any Color Paper - I used paper from an art paper roll but wrapping paper will work just fine
  • White Construction Paper or White Computer Paper
  • Boxes - I used Beer boxes because I liked the size of them but you can use any box that is convenient for you
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue Stick
  • Pencil or Print out of letters for the name



How To:


1. Cut the colored paper to fit your box and wrap your box like you would wrap a gift. Secure all the sides with tape.


NOTE: If you use a light color such as pink you may be able to see the through the color once you wrap your box, especially if the box has a design on it like the beer boxes. I taped a piece of computer paper to the side of the box I planned on putting the letters on and then wrapped the box with the paper so you could no longer see the box design.


2. Draw your letters on white paper and cut them out. You can print your letters out and trace them or just print them out and cut them out if you prefer.




3. Glue your letters onto the wrapped blocks with a glue stick and your done!

These Name Blocks are cheap and easy to make. You can make them in any color and you can spell anything you want, you don't have to stick to a name. The Name Blocks are great for any occasion whether it's a birthday party, baby shower, school event or a bridal shower. They make for a great party decoration or photo prop. Once the party has ended you can keep them as a decoration in your child's room, re-use them for a different name or word, trash them or let you children play with them, since kids tend to love boxes, and throw them away once your children have destroyed them. The benefit of cheap decorations is it's okay if it gets destroyed because it cost little, if anything to make.

I kept my daughter's blocks in her room and used them for a picture when she turned two to show her growth. They have lasted over a year besides my son pulling at the letters but I just re-glued it and it worked fine! I plan on keeping my son's in his room too until they get destroyed or we need the space.



Below is my daughter next to her name blocks for her first and second Birthday. The tutu was in storage so it isn't as fluffy but the name blocks is a great way to show how much your child has grown from year to year if you keep them!
