:: block printing ::

I've been obsessing over this very pocket friendly DIY idea for block printing ever since I saw it on high-heeled foot in the door. All you need is a piece of foam {for carving/cutting your design} and a piece of wood for your base... so simple! I love the inconsistent look that you get with block prints. It give pieces a vintage or one of a kind look. Below are a few great ideas I found while browsing for block print inspiration.

How does this translate into "my world"? I was thinking about creating garland with muslin flags and block printed hearts to decorate the house for vday? That would be my practice project... I would love to instroduce a few to my etsy shop!

Has anyone else tried this method? How did that work out? Wondering if I should follow any of your tips:)
