Bowdabra Holiday Decor: Christmas Glass Block

Are you lovelies ready to start getting your craft on for Christmas? I know I am! I love decorating and crafting for Christmas. I put Christmas Glass Blockon my favorite Christmas movie or CD and relax a little bit, while creating some red and green loveliness for my home. One of my favorite ways to decorate at Christmas time is with vinyl and ribbon. I think ribbon and vinyl can spruce up any old thing. They create insta-cuteness. Today I am going to show you a simple Christmas craft. It is a Christmas glass block. These are perfect to display on mantels, tables, and are even great as Christmas gifts.

So let’s get crafting…

Here is What You Need:

Instructions:

1. Begin by gathering all your materials.

2. Clean the surface of your glass block. This is just to make sure there is no dust or anything on it when you apply the vinyl.

3. Add your vinyl lettering. I chose the word JOY in red. I thought it went perfectly with my Red and Gold Swirl Ribbon.

4. Once you apply your vinyl, you’re ready for your ribbon.

5. Wrap your ribbon around your glass block. I taped mine in place before hot gluing it. I removed the tape after gluing.

6. Now that your block has its vinyl and ribbon, all it needs is a pretty bow for the top. To make the bow cut 24 inches of Bowdabra wire. Place it into your Bowdabra.

7. Take the end of the ribbon and twist the side that has the longest end and place it right side facing down-wards into the Bowdabra. This is the beginning of your first loop.

8. Continue folding your ribbon into your Bowdabra, making loops.

9. Continue to create as many loops as you want, depending on the fullness of the bow you prefer at the end. I wanted mine pretty full, so I did a bunch of loops. Once you have achieved your desired ribbon width scrunch down the ribbon with the Bowdabra wand. Tie with your Bowdabra Wire.
