Lighted Frosted Glass Block
I made this glass block using vinyl as both the negative and positive image. This snowflake is a very simple image to use for this project. Basically, you first lay down a shadow image and either spray wtih Krylon Frosted Glass Finish Aerosol Paint or glass etching cream. Remove the shadow image and you have clear glass where the spray or etching cream could not adhere. Lay your regular (non shadow) vinyl image over that space. That’s what gives my snowflake a shadowy look.
Need vinyl? I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.
In my Cricut Vinylology DVD I show you how to create a similar project using a beautiful and intricate tree. I LOVE the way that one turned out. You can catch a glimpse of it in the Cricut Vinylology commercial on my Products page where you can also purchase the DVD.
I purchase these glass blocks at Hobby Lobby. They sell these stands there too. 🙂 I like to fill my blocks with a small strand of LED lights. I can’t remember which Cricut cartridge I used for the snowflake, but many of the carts have snowflakes. Frosted glass spray gives the block that look. You could also glass etch the blocks. 😉
