DIY Holiday Decorating - Noel!
Hi there, I've had several glass blocks at home and had wondered how to decorate them for the holidays, finally I decorated one for my office. I decided to paint some poinsettias and add the word Noel.
It was a very simple and easy project and looked so pretty right along my other etched items I made for my office.
You can add lights or battery type candles inside the glass block . I just wrapped a pretty red wired ribbon and some gold ornaments to the top of the block and it was ready for display.

Red wire ribbon
First thing I did was place my image on the inside of the glass block.
Second, I took my designer tip and added the etchall cream on all the areas I wanted to etch., as you can see on the photo below, some of the flower petals and leaves were only traced with the etching cream, but left alone so I can add color to these areas.
