Y’all… these little printable Saint blocks are one of my favorite Saint resources for kids EVER! These things are so adorable, super easy to put together, ridiculously affordable, and did I mention adorable?! Let’s take a look at all of the printable Saint blocks that we have so far.

And check it out- each Saint has a little symbol that represents them for the back of the block! I love these little Saint symbols!

If Saint peg dolls have been something you wanted to collect, but they felt expensive or intimidating… these little Saint blocks were made for you!

How To Make Printable Saint Blocks

These go together so easily that truly anyone can do it!

Supplies Needed For Printable Saint Blocks:

  • Saint block printables
  • Paper (for decoupaging, you want to print these onto standard paper. If you’re chosing to fold them into paper cubes, you should use card stock.) 
  • Wooden Craft Cubes (I love the 1.5 inch cubes) 
  • Sand paper (the cubes are MUCH nicer in the end if you take a little time to sand the edges of the cubes before beginning)
  • Mod Podge (they have small bottles of this at the Dollar Tree)
  •  Paint brush (for spreading Mod Podge- I like these foam brushes)
  • Scissors
  • Aluminum foil (for the cubes to dry on) 

Option 1, paper cubes: Print your Saint cubes onto card stock. Cut along all of the outside edges. Then make folds on all of the remaining lines with the colorful sides facing out. This shape will fold into a cube. Put glue stick on each of the little flaps, assemble in the shape of a cube, and gently press the little flaps on the under sides of the cube to hold it in place.

Option 2, decoupage on wooden blocks: Print onto standard paper, which is better for decoupaging. The page with the cubes for decoupaging is ready to use a 1 1/2 inch block and printing at the actual size. If your wooden cube is smaller, you can print it at a smaller percentage. You will want the squares a bit smaller than your block.

Once you have the squares the right size, cut them all out into individual squares. Sand your wooden block on the corners if needed, and dust off the cube. Paint Mod Podge on one side of the block, and put a square on one side of the block. Paint another coat of Mod Podge over the top of the paper. Try not to “scrub” too much with the brush, especially if you have an ink jet printer. Just swipe on the Mod Podge with your brush and move on. It will dry clear. If it gets any wrinkles, slick them down with the back of your fingernail. When that has fully dried, you can turn the cube on its side and do the remaining bottom square using the same process. Set them on foil to dry so they don’t stick to the surface and allow them to cure this way overnight.

If the paper goes onto the cube askew and needs to be adjusted, it works a lot better to peel it off and try placing it again than to try sliding it. You need to do this immediately if adjusting is necessary.
