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

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

  1. I love this – I want to make one for Halloween and for Thanksgiving! Thanks for sharing :-)

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

  3. Sarah I can tell these are terrific! Pinning!
    <3 Christina at I Gotta Create!

  4. Love love love. I did one w/ a spiderweb last year and just may have to add some more!

  5. 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!

  6. 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

  7. 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

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

  9. hi!
    you got a nice blog there. i loveed reading your posts!
    i just followed you.

    please follow back! :)

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

  11. 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??

  12. 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!

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

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

  15. 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 :)

  16. Really cute!

  17. LOVE this idea! I am so going to do it!!

    Thanks for sharing!

  18. Love the idea! Think I’ll try making a pumpkin out of one! Joining from Whatever Goes Wednesday – http://allthoseartsygirls.blogspot.com/

  19. These blocks are just awesome! Great idea!!! TFS :)

  20. 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?

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

  22. 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!

  23. 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.

  24. OMGosh what a creative idea!!

  25. These are GORGEOUS!!! I need to go out and get some glass block now!

  26. 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…

  27. Now thats really special for the window at night on Halloween. The orange is so great!! Visiting from Simple and Sweet Fridays.

  28. 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!

  29. 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

  30. What a beautiful, creative and unique idea! I love it! A neat alternative to carved pumpkins on a porch! Thank you so much for sharing! I found you through French Country Cottage’s Feathered Nest Friday link and am now following, looking forward to more posts and pics! Feel free to visit me at pinkcherubmoon.blogspot.com. Hugs, Leena

  33. This is such a cool project! I love the purple lights. Genius!

  34. I was just at Hobby Lobby the other day and was thinking about what I could do to make a Halloween one, now I don’t have to wonder anymore! I love it! Thanks for sharing at I Freakin Did it Friday!

  35. Wow I love these! My next project was going to be painting glass. You have a machine that cuts these letters?

  36. it looks great with the lights on !

  37. I love them even without the lights! That ribbon is absolutely perfect. Thanks so much for linking up at One Creative Weekend! Enjoy your weekend.

    Just wanted to let you know I featured one of these on a Halloween post!

  56. I like these. I’ve seen them used at Christmas. I like things at Halloween time that isn’t evil looking. Thank you for sharing.

  57. Such a cute idea! Thanks for linking up to our Pretty Things Party. Hope to see you back next week!

  58. Terrific idea and put together so nicely! I saw one last year at a little store and they wanted around $50 for it and the wires were just bunched inside and not hidden. I doubt they ever sold it. I like the lettering you put on them too. These would be so neat scattered around at a party! Great job!

  59. So cute. You could make one for every holiday! Thanks so much for sharing on Tout It Tuesday. Hope to see you tomorrow.

  60. How fun! Wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.
