Wooden blocks are simple, versatile accents that can be included in all sorts of Christmas displays. Add a touch of nostalgia with some famous quotes from Home Alone…

While my family is a Hanukkah family and we don’t celebrate Christmas at all, this movie is an all-time favorite of mine! I mean, who doesn’t love a cheeky kid who outsmarts an evil adult with creativity? (Never mind a family forgetting a child while traveling to Paris – I prefer not to think of that part).

Decorating with these movie quotes adds a bit of fun to your decor, but you can keep the style more serious. This post uses red and green vinyl, but keep a more serious farmhouse feel with black vinyl.

Cut apart a wood stud or buy premade wooden blocks to cut out a few steps. You can purchase 2.5 inch blocks but that seems to be much less cost-effective than 2 inch.

DIY Home Alone decor blocks also make fantastic small gifts to hand out to family and friends. They’re conversation-starters that’ll make people smile.

3. Import the PNG file into design space. Make it less than 2″ in height. Set machine to vinyl on the dial, or choose vinyl in your Design Space settings. Place the vinyl on the cutting mat. Send it to the machine to cut. Remove your design from the mat and weed – remove the extra vinyl. Repeat for the second.

4. Cut a piece of transfer tape to size. Peel back the transfer tape and add it to the vinyl decal you just made. Scrape well the scraper tool. Slowly pull back the transfer tape, making sure your design sticks. If it doesn’t, re-scrape, focusing on the edges.

5. Line it up with the block and place the sticker on it. Once it’s placed as you like it, scrape it well in place. Slowly pull back the transfer tape, making sure the design sticks to the wood. Repeat for the second design.
