Repurposing a Christmas Glass Block

I redid a Christmas glass block in this post, too.
I didn’t take a picture of the glass block when it was a Christmas Block. Darn. But all it had was a gold big bow. It was not pretty by any stretch of the imagination. But now it is pretty.
I had some of these very large artificial white hydrangea flowers and it seemed the perfect thing to top this glass block with.
See the glass block? It has a string of lights inside. I’m always looking for little lights to keep around the house so that I can walk around with a nightline and this fit the bill.

First I put ribbon around the block to hide the seam on the side. I didn’t take a picture of that step. Darn. But you get the idea.

I took the stem off the flower and then glued that on top of the green leaves.


The white little Christmas lights were already inside the block so I didn’t have to do anything with them.

night line

I almost feel guilty about this craft because there was so little to do to make it.

I plugged it in. It’s a wonderful light.


It looks so cute on the serving table in the dining room. The dining room is lit all evening even though the big light is off. This gives off a pleasant glow.


 This is the way it looked BEFORE:

Have a great Monday!
