Brick Craft

This is the cutest little brick! It belongs to my Mom and I wanted to share it with you. It would be so simple to make. Just paint the face of the brick and then paint a simple design on it. Personalize it for gift giving or to keep for yourself. Mom has this one sitting on the ledge, but it could be used as a door stop too.
Tie a piece of ribbon or fabric around the brick to match the painted colors.
I would suggest to go to a salvage or some where they are taking down a building and recycle the bricks. Check in the bins at the fabric or craft stores where they sell small pieces of ribbon or fabric to use with this craft.


  1. This is as cute as they come! Remember the door stops made from the paving stones?

  2. If I want to use old bricks from my childhood home, what kind of paint wouold I use to prep it for outdoor use?
