Step 1: Gather Supplies & Stain Wood Pieces
Gather your supplies:

Sanding block Wood blocks are from Michaels
Give your wood a good sanding
Stain your wood pieces (I did two coats on the bigger pieces and only one on the small blocks)
Step 2: Paint the Backgrounds
Paint the wood backgrounds using regular acrylic paint (I did the larger piece white and the medium red)
Step 3: Create Your Stencils in Cricut Design Space
Create your stencils in Cricut Design Space (see video for more info or find me on Patreon @carlykeller for a link)
Numbers for blocks:
012678 (the 6 is used as a 9)
Weed and cut your stencils so they can be placed on each wood surface
Step 4: Apply Your Stencils and Paint
Apply your stencils making sure the right numbers go on each corresponding block
Carefully, paint over your stencils using two coats of paint (I used red on top of the white and white on top of the red block)
Step 5: Voila!
Yay! Your project is complete!
