Christmas glass block décor piece
- Begin by gathering all your materials.
- Clean the surface of your glass block. This is just to make sure there is no dust or anything on it when you apply the vinyl.
- Add your vinyl lettering. I chose the word JOY in red.
- Once you apply your vinyl, you’re ready for your ribbon.
- Wrap your ribbon around your glass block. I taped mine in place before hot gluing it. I removed the tape after gluing.
Make the Bow
- Now that your block has its vinyl and ribbon, all it needs is a pretty bow for the top. To make the bow cut 24 inches of Bowdabra wire fold it in half. Place it into your Bowdabra. You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other. This will be your slipknot.
- Take the end of the ribbon and twist the side that has the longest end and place it right side facing downwards into the Bowdabra. This is the beginning of your first loop.
- Continue folding your ribbon into your Bowdabra, making loops.
- Continue to create as many loops as you want, depending on the fullness of the bow you prefer at the end. I wanted mine pretty full, so I did a bunch of loops. Once you have achieved your desired ribbon width scrunch down the ribbon with the Bowdabra wand. Insert the loose wires through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Turn to the back and tie a knot.
- Fluff and shape your bow. Hot glue it onto your glass block.
