These glass blocks make a great centerpiece or holiday decoration and are very easy to put together.  The best part is that you can change them for the next holiday or special occasion because they have a hole in the top!   I will add to this post each time I change it out to illustrate all the different things you can do with these blocks.

Materials:

  • Glass block  which can be purchased at Hobby Lobby or other craft store. They cost about 10 to 12 dollars but I got this one at half price when it was on sale.
  • picks and decorations  ( I got mine at Hobby Lobby also at half price on the add. )
  • one set of LED battery powered lights

Step 2.

I put a fall pick that had a little sparkle so that it would shine in the lights.  Mine had a big fruit thing on it that wouldn’t fit through the slot so I cut it in half and put both halves inside with the cut part towards the back.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
