Tower of Blocks Centerpiece

Smoothfoam tower of blocks centerpiece

I love my new tower of blocks as a centerpiece for my table or kitchen island – it shows off all the cool monoprints I’ve been making. Create a themed tower of blocks for party table decoration!

I have been doing a lot with monoprinting on cardstock and now I have a PILE of cool prints and didn’t know what to do with them all. So this project was designed to use a bunch of prints in a creative way. Check out the monoprinting tutorials online to see all the possibilities for printing your own themed or patterned papers using acrylic paints and stencils.

Supplies:

8″ Smoothfoam cube
5″ Smoothfoam cube
3″ Smoothfoam cube
Gel Press™ Printing Plate
Acrylic paints
Stencils, paint brushes, brayer
White cardstock
Craft glue
Permanent markers
Stamps, inkpads

Mono Print

After your monoprints are dry, trim them into squares to fit each side of your Smoothfoam cubes. Treat the monoprinting like a background and then stamp your favorite focal image on top.

Glue a square to each side of the cube, plus the top, and let dry.

Color the corners of each cube with a marker and you’re done! Stack the cubes in a tower – glue in position if you want, or leave them loose for more versatility. A single decorated cube makes a great riser for a little statue or art piece. I love pears, so I added a faux pear to the top.
