Halloween Glass Blocks.



Today I wanted to share some Halloween themed projects using our glass blocks. There are definitely a lot of different ways you could use these glass blocks to decorate for Halloween, but here are a couple of ideas that I think are especially fun. First up is the Trick or Treat glass block. Created with lights, tissue paper, a vinyl saying and some tulle - this would be a fun decoration for either out on the porch or in the house. A project sheet for the Trick or Treat glass block can be found here.


The second glass block I wanted to share is this Mummy Glass Block. Again, really simple we just added lights inside the glass block, googly eyes and wrapped fabric around the block. A project sheet for this project can be found here.

  2. Unfortunately we don't sell these items pre-made - however we would love to help you pick up the supplies to create your own. We promise you don't have to be "crafty" and it will only take about 15 minutes to make either of these projects!

    Are the instructions for the mummy glass block still available? The link is not working for me and I'd love to make one!

    Thanks!

  5. I know this is an old post, but I am wondering about what is inside with the lights? Is that different colors of tulle? Is it safe to put tulle in with a string of lights? I'm assuming it is because I've seen it many places, but I'm trying to find an experienced person to confirm that is it safe. Also, would it be safe to combine tulle with a nightlight bulb?

    1. The trick or treat block has cut up tissue paper in it along with a rice light set. You could certainly use tulle as we have with other glass block samples. The rice lights do not get as hot as a regular string light set that may be used on Christmas trees. The night light may get too hot but we have not tried it.

      The mummy glass block has lights on the inside of the glass block with cheese cloth wrapped on the outside.
