Halloween Glass Blocks with Lights


I loved putting this project together. The pictures really do not do it justice. These glass block are just stunning.




I used my Silhouette to cut out the words on adhesive vinyl.



I wrapped this fantastic ribbon around the sides and into a bow on the top.



The purple mini lights and tulle inside the block give the perfect amount of shimmer.




I absolutely love it!


Here`s another saying
Trick or Treat


I gotta say, I love this ribbon!





The orange glow is so perfect!





The possibilities are endless...these would be perfect for Christmas too!

For those of you that do not have a vinyl cutting machine, adding stickers to the front is a perfect alternative.
These ones are great

How cute are these?! Love them. Did you cut a hole to plug the lights in or are they battery operated?

Oh, these are just wonderful! I saw Christmas ones last year, but really, really love these for Halloween! I wonder about the light cord/plug too?
Thanks so much for sharing these!

Those are so cute!!! I am not crafty at all, but I think my daughter's and I could do this. Thanks for sharing! Stacie xo

So cute may I ask a question?
To put lights and tulle inside where did you make the hole? And how much is it large? I made one of these blocks last year for Christmas but I think that I made some mistakes...the hole wasn't too big it was big enough to put inside very small lights and I made it on the face of the glassblock that wasn't painted.
Thank you
Marta

Beautiful! I made one for Christmas last year, but without lights. I really like yours with the lights in it! Especially the orange one!

So stinkin' cute! Love the orange glow! I just love those little craft blocks! Don't you?

 
At September 11, 2012 at 11:19 AM , Blogger Sandy said...

I love these! I too was wondering about the glass blocks and how you cut the holes for the lights... or can you buy them with holes already cut out??

 
At September 11, 2012 at 11:41 AM , Blogger Alderberry Hill said...

Hi Marta,

The glass blocks have holes pre cut in the bottom and come with a plug to feed your cord into. The opening is pretty big, so you could fit a fair sized object inside.

So cute! I have a vinyl cutter on my "wish list" so maybe some day...! I hadn't thought of using stickers, duh (smacking myself on the forehead)! Thanks for the great tip!

Wow, I just love your Halloween glass blocks! So very creative and perfect decorations.

I love these glass blocks! Such a beautiful Halloween decoration. A nice change from the cutesy or creepy decor.

I'm going to the DIY store now to buy a glass block and try this out!

I would love to invite you to post this over at my link party on The Purple Pumpkin Blog! Hope to see you there :)

I'm glad you had the great tip about using stickers. I was thinking it was super cute but not something I could make since I don't have a Silhouette. I guess I could make some after all...awesome! Where did you get the blocks?

Super cute idea I have to pin! Thanx for linking up!

Hi Sarah- Love this idea. I am organizing a Charity Masquerade Ball and would love to make these for the ball (I have a Silhouette and can cut vinyl). Can you tell me where you bought your glass blocks and if they came pre-drilled with a hole for adding your lights inside? Let me know - I'm under the gun to get some projects done for the decorations for our ball! Thanks so much for sharing your great project. I pinned the block from your shop - hope that will bring you some traffic!

 
At September 13, 2012 at 11:01 AM , Blogger Stephanie said...

Love the lights you used for this. Very pretty. I'm so glad you mentioned using stickers because my first thought was I'd like to make one but didn't want to cut out letters.

OMGosh what a creative idea!!

At September 13, 2012 at 7:25 PM , Anonymous Angie said...

I love these - so beautiful...definitely something else to add to our Halloween/Fall project list :)

Just a thought, but if you can't find these with pre-cut holes, you could always buy the battery powered light sets and hide the battery box inside with ribbon...

This is a really neat idea--I have been looking for ideas for a steampunk-theme home office, and something like this with the wording appropriate for that look might be really cool. Thank you so much for sharing this fun idea!

Such a clever idea...and thank you for sharing the stickers...and you are so right about that ribbon...it's super chic, I can picture it adorning a lot of other things...it would look so beautiful against any solid bright color don't you think? thank you so much for sharing at our first HAPPY HOUR FRIDAY ...we appreciate you helping us inspire others...thanks again and talk to you soon...xo
