Lighted Christmas Block - Ginger Snap Crafts

Hi! I'm Ginger, & I blog over at Ginger Snap Crafts
It's a fun place where I share my easy, simple & cute crafty ideas & projects. 
{Would love to have YOU drop by sometime!}  
{Ginger Snap Crafts}
It's such an honor to be over here at
Sugar Bee Crafts. 
Today I'd love to share my cute & easy{lighted} Christmas block.
{Supplies}
glass block
vinyl cut outs*
holiday ribbon
mini Christmas light set
*I made these using my Silhouette clip art & software.
Make sure you clean your block & remove any labels or price tags. 
Then you just start layering your vinyl. 
You put on solid red, green or white squares on first. 
Then add a decorative overlay, and finally you'll put the letters on last. 
Then you remove the cap on the bottom & put your mini Christmas lights inside. 
Leave the plug hanging out of course. 
Add a festive ribbon & then plug in!  That's it!  :)
Would love to have you over to Ginger Snap Crafts!
           On my blog you'll also find some more fun tutorials.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!

I love this. One of my favorite gifts from students was a glass Christmas block, with a pretty gold bow. But, I'm thinking I"ll give it a "makeover" based on this idea. Could I get vinyl letters precut? Or would scrapbooking letter stickers work? Hmm....what do you think?

Very pretty, and the layered letters are just so cute!

Fantastic Ginger! I think I will let my kids each decorate one of these!

I'm sure scrapbooking letters or even letter stickers would work just as well! Thanks for the comments, ladies! :)

Just another pretty reason why I want a Silhouette....it's a bit out of Santa's price range this year....maybe 2012 though. I'd be really excited to try this though. Scrap book and card making supplies would definitely work.

Super idea :)

That is so cute!! I have a block like that but it doesn't have the hole- hmm need to find one.
