Halloween Glass Block

Today I am sharing a home decor project using a glass block. This is a quick and easy home decor project and even a fun gift. I used a vinyl pumpkin face cut from the Pumpkin Carving seasonal cartridge.
I added the vinyl to the glass, filled the inside of the block with some gold cellophane paper and a 20 string light set, topped it off with a bow I made and I was done.   I have seen glass blocks with etching cream but I decided not to use etching cream since I really wanted the lights to show through.  I will be entering this project in the Patches of Pink challenge.


  1. Your colors are exact. I've never tackled this project. You have done a wonderful job with just using vinyl and not etching.

  2. really cute!! So the cellophane paper doesn't get too hot in there with the bulbs? I would love to make one of these for my daughter.

  3. wow this is so cool I love it, you did a really amazing job on this glass block love it thanks so much for sharing this Hugs Debbie

  4. Really cute and so simple! Thanks for sharing at Patches of Pink.

    Many blessings,
