Craft Of The Week...

What do you get when you combine:

1. Glass brick that you buy at Home Depot or a Craft Store.
2. White Deco Lights. (20 bulb count)
3. Shimmery Natural Accents Filler.
4. Vinyl Rub -On Decorative Stickers for walls and crafts.
5. Two types pink ribbon and a piece of floral wire...
??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

YOU GET A PRECIOUS NIGHT LIGHT FOR A BABY GIRL!

 *******************************************************************************
Here is how I did it:

First take a glass brick that contractors stack up to make walls in bathrooms. I noticed the other day that Micheal's is selling these glass bricks in a kit. Clean it well.

Rub on vinyl decorative stickers. Put lights inside through the top. Keep lights towards back of brick. Add shimmery filling to the front to hide the lights. Tie a ribbon around sides of the brick tying at the top. Make yourself a floral bow using ribbon and tying it together with floral wire. (I will be showing how to make bows real soon) Attach bow to the top of glass brick and turn it on... It's just that simple.
Here is a picture of it without the lights on. WARNING: Keep away from baby. Read and Follow ALL safety instructions. There is lead in ALL twinkle light cording always wash your hands after use.

  5. These lights are so cute. A patient at work makes and sells them. She has her husband drill a hole in the back and feeds the lights in that way. I bought one from her last year for Christmas...I love it.

    I can't wait to learn how to make your beautiful bows.

  11. Robin -

    I LOVE those! They're too cute! Linda's comment made me wonder about how you were dealing with the cord, by the way.

    Wish you were close by so you could make a bunch of them for me wholesale! (Can you tell I have absolutely no time left over for crafting? LOL)

    1. Hey Jessica,
      I bought it at Ben Franklin crafts... I looked all over the Internet and couldn't find it either. I am going to Ben Franklin's this week and will look and see if they have it still.
      I imagine you can use all sorts of things like sheer glittery ribbon etc etc.
      It's been a long time since I made this! But I know I've seen this filler at other craft stores!
