Welcome to the Hobby Lobby Creative Studio!
I’m Kaley and today we’re celebrating seasons and holidays with décor made from glass blocks! There are so many ways to personalize your
own. Let me give you a few examples to spark your creativity!
Check out this fun way to celebrate the Fourth of July! We made these stars and stripes with
red, white and blue vinyl, which you can find in our Scrapbooking Department. To start, use a template to trace your shapes
onto the back side of your vinyl. If you’re making letters or numbers, remember to turn
your template over and trace them in reverse. That way they’re not backwards when you stick
them down onto the glass block. Alright, now you can cut out your shapes.
We used scissors and a craft knife for the star, and a paper trimmer for the stripes. Apply your vinyl to the glass by simply removing
the backing and smoothing it down. Now all that’s left is tying some patriotic ribbon
around the top and placing it on your table! Jumping from summer to winter, let’s talk
about this darling snowflake block. First, we used a template to trace the shape onto
the glass block. Then we went in with acrylic craft paint to create the delicate silhouette. Once the paint dried, we sprayed on some glitter
and added twinkle lights to give it that warm holiday glow. It doesn’t get much cooler than
that! For something a little more spooky, try transforming
glass blocks into bottles to hold Halloween-inspired concoctions. We used colored sand for the
pumpkin powder and water-storing crystal beads for the others. Sneak some skeletons and eyeballs
into the mix while you’re at it, and with a fancy cork-stopper at the top, these brews
will be worthy of any lair. Who knew glass blocks could be transformed
so easily into something so cute? Are you ready to make your own glass block décor
now? I know I am! For more holiday and seasonal inspiration,
