Materials Needed:
A strand of lights
Contact Paper
Gel Window Clings
Measure your contact paper on your block.
Cut out a square shape that fits your glass block.
Peel and stick the contact paper onto your glass block. This will give you a frosted look.
Place your gel window clings on the contact paper on the glass block.
Crafting blocks come with a hole in them. Place your strand of lights in the glass block. If you’d rather, you can use battery operated lights.
Plug/turn your lights on and you’re done.
We use ours as a night light in a bathroom. We leave it on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It doesn’t get too hot.

    Hi Chas. Hope your feeling well ❤️ I’ve had a bunch of glass blocks hanging around for years never really finding something quick and easy to do with them. I love what you did so cute the only question I have is where would I find that kind of contact paper. I’ve never seen it before?
