Spooky Halloween Lighted Glass Block

The theme for the current Challenge (RRR32) at Really Reasonable Ribbon is Autumn. So many cards are posted for the challenge that I had to buck the system and be different. I made a lighted glass block decorated with vinyl and wired ribbon. By the way, this is my cat Spook posing for a picture. And what a coincidence that the theme at My Craft Spot  for their latest challenge is ribbon! Here is my project ....
 and the back side ....

Its a little hard to see, but there is ribbon wrapped around the sides of the glass block. The bow is attached with velcro. This makes it easy to store off-season inside the block. I adhere vellum inside the block to diffuse the light and hide the electrical cord a bit. I cut the images using my Cricut and the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. These glass blocks came with a hole already, so I did not have to drill it. These are really lovely decorated for Christmas too! I hope you like what you saw.

    1. Hello Pam. Thank you for the kind comment on my Halloween glass block. The cat is from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge... Accessory 1 under the Mummy. It was one of my favorite cartridges :)


I love hearing what you think!
