I have been motivated by a website that I mentioned before Dollar Store Crafts to try to do a craft with supplies from the dollar store. So I took off to Dollar Tree, the dollar store in my town, with a few ideas in my head. I hoped to find wooden blocks for a few different crafts, but they didn't have any. I did find these styrofoam blocks though and decided I'd use them for the Christmas countdown blocks that I've seen. I had the foam brush and the black paint (which I found on sale for 39 cents at JoAnn's yesterday). I didn't buy the scrapbook paper at the dollar store, but they might have some there. Or if you're like me, you have a bunch at home already.
I painted them black and let them dry. Then I tore scrapbook paper (or you could cut them into squares) and Mod Podged them on. I don't have a vinyl machine and didn't find cheap stickers of the numbers I needed so I just printed them from my computer. I used the Victorian font. Make sure that the font you use has a 6 that you can turn upside to use as a 9. Then Mod Podge those on too. Easy peasy!!!
One of the blocks needs to have these numbers: 0,1,2,3,4,5
And the other block has these numbers: 0,1,2,6,7,8
