So I copied the image to my desktop publishing software, sized it to fit the glass block, printed two copies of it, and then decoupaged the copies to the two flat sides of the block with Mod Podge. Here are a few photos of the work in progress:
|I brushed Mod Podge on to the glass block.|
|I placed the image over the Mod Podge, carefully using my fingers to remove any air bubbles.|
I threaded the blue mini lights through the pre-cut opening in the glass block, then turned on the lights. Here is the result:
My camera couldn't quite capture the proper shade of blue that peeks through the image; its not quite as stark as this image. It is so pretty! Even my husband (who isn't too crazy about religious art) said it was beautiful.
I've seen these same blue mini lights at Target this year, so if you are interested in making a craft like this, check out the Christmas light section at the after-holiday sales.
I also made a similar decoration for Advent. Will post about it tomorrow!
