Enjoy an Illuminating Christmas Gift
Do you love the look of Christmas gifts carefully displayed under the tree? You can illuminate the tree with a craft glass block before presents are wrapped with festive glass block "gifts"! A string of battery-operated lights and holiday-themed ribbon is all you need to turn an elegant glass block into a stunning decoration ideal for placing under the tree.
We recommend trying the Decobloc - Wave for this simple craft. It was designed for artists and crafters to unleash their creativity and showcase their individual expressions. Decobloc - Wave is hollowed inside, making it perfect for white or colorful twinkle lights. Each block comes equipped with an insert and cap that adds a professional finishing touch to your project.
Brighten the Season with An Adorable Christmas Penguin
Penguins add a touch of whimsy and cheer to any holiday decor! Why not turn a craft glass block into the most adorable winter penguin? Your unique creation can be displayed on a fireplace mantle, in a guest bathroom or, use as a seasonal night light in a child's bedroom.
When painting craft glass block, be sure to use good quality acrylic paint or glass paint. To avoid unsightly, streaky brush marks, try using a sponge to apply the paint. Another option is simply to apply multiple coats of paint until the surface is coated uniformly.
When using paint on a piece that's to be illuminated, try using lighter colors that allow light to penetrate and shine through.
This would also make a perfect gift for kids to make for their grandparents, teachers, or coaches.
Display Treasured Holiday Crafts
If you have a child or crafter in your life, you likely have a collection of beautiful and tiny hand-crafted treasures that you're not quite sure what to do with. Try displaying those beloved holiday crafts with the help of a craft glass block!
With your craft glass block, all you need is a standard glue gun, holiday ribbon or craft snow, and a few of your most favoured craft items. Of course, some creativity and craftiness are also required.
For this design, we recommend using the DecoBloc - Clear craft glass block.

Artists looking to captivate their audience and use an incredibly unique canvas should consider a craft glass block.

Using acrylic paint, any artist can create a holiday-inspired art piece for their home and loved ones. For an outdoor scene, consider utilizing the DecoBloc - Wave craft glass block. It's beautiful, and its wavy texture is delightful to enhance a stunning horizon.
Use Vinyl Letters to Express Holiday Cheer

When craft glass block is combined with vinyl lettering and cutouts, the possibility to express your creativity is both endless and simple! Vinyl letters adhere beautifully to craft glass block and can be customized to meet your imagination.
Vinyl lettering can be purchased at craft stores, online, or made by yourself on an at-home cutting machine, such as a Cricut. Try spraying the block with frosted paint before adding letters to soften the light radiating from within when making a project with vinyl lettering.
Glass block vases can also be used for unique holiday projects with vinyl lettering. Our craft glass block vases are available in the popular wavy texture and make a beautiful canvas for a unique holiday decor project.
