The first and easy way to do this is through your device's call/contact application.

Blocking  Phone Numbers and calls through Google's default contact application. 

Go to your app drawer (or app menu) depending on the launcher you are using.

  • Locate your contact app 
  • Click on options (three dots) on the top right corner (this may vary depending on your device android version- other users of newer devices should swipe from left to right of the application)
  • Click on settings
  • Click on blocked numbers
  • Add the phone numbers you wish to block.

And you're done.

For those that want to use a seperate application to do this, there are Third party Android Applications available on the Google Play store to achieve this.
