Merry and Bright


Welcome to KaDoodle Bug Design's Holiday Blog Hop!  We are so excited to have you join us today! At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design team. 

You should be arriving from Sonja's  blog. If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the KaDoodle Bug Design's Blog to start at the beginning of the hop.


Here is the project I created:

Lately, I have been seeing so many posts with everyone using vinyl to decorate their glass blocks. Paper is more my element than vellum so I decided to see if I could still decorate the glass and make it look just as cute as vinyl.

If you are inspired to try your hand to create your own version, make sure the glass is nice and clean.



I was able to use my regular craft glue to lay my project down onto the glass.

I found the multicolored lights, twine material with snow attached at Walmart in the holiday section.

By the way, aren't these penguins the cutest?
 


Here is a close up of my project and if you look closer you can see the material inside the block.

Thanks for hopping with us and good luck to you all in winning all the new designs being released for the holidays. They are just too cute!

Thanks for stopping by and now you should be moving on to my fabulous Dt sister:
