Decoarting for the Holidays with Glass Blocks

I've been meaning to blog about these glass blocks I made for quite a while.  This was my first try at doing them and I am very pleased with how they turned out.
I wanted to put lights inside but we don't seem to get the crafty blocks where I live.  So I had to go with building blocks from my local hardware and had to drill the hole in the glass myself.  Lucky for me I have a very handy hubby who assisted with this...
For the block above, I cut the "Merry and Bright" sign out of red vinyl and used the ornament files from the Comet's Candy Lane Collection to do the etching.  Big bow on top and voila!  It looks so pretty with the lights turned on in the dark... 


For the second block, I used snowflake files form the Christmas in the Village and Clara's Christmas Eve kits and cut some out of vinyl whilst using others do some etching on the background (sorry, the picture doesn't really show the etching so well).  I drew a border in Silhouette DE and used a basic font to write Merry Christmas.

I love making these... So much fun and they so easy to do as well...


Thanks for stopping by!
