Take 24 blocks and organize them into month, day, year, time, pounds and ounces.
Place alphabet stickers onto the blocks.
Spray paint blocks in a well ventilated area. Allow blocks to dry then brush on more paint on uneven areas.
Carefully remove alphabet stickers.
This step is optional. For a rustic appearance, you can keep the letters and numbers in wood.
Fill letters and numbers with paint.
Determine Number of Rows For Baby Announcement Frame

Arrange blocks within the frame to determine the number of rows needed.
Measure and mark the distance for each row onto the back of the frame.
Create Wire Rows
Measure the wire to the frame + 1 inch and twist two pieces together.
Make one for each row.

Thread wire into blocks
Using a hot glue gun, apply glue to adhere blocks together.
When the glue has slightly cooled, carefully wipe off excess glue.
Turn the frame and align a row of blocks to the markings.
Hot glue wire to frame to keep in place.
Allow glue to cool completely.
Trim extra wire off each end and apply more glue to seal edges.
Create Wire Names
Sketch out names in cursive.
And trace with wire.
For letters like I, Q, T, and X use E6000 glue to complete the letter.
Let glue fully dry before moving onto the next step.
