Decorated Glass Blocks
Included in this roundup of decorated glass blocks ideas is the one that I made and shared on my blog. Get the tutorial for my Christmas Glass Block here. It is ridiculously easy to do and you don’t even need a cutting machine! My Merry Christmas block is pictured above.
When I made my decoration I didn’t have my Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker, so I was “forced” to cut by hand – and even though I used a script font, I was still able to do it, so don’t be put off if you don’t have one and want to use vinyl to decorate with.
If you don’t have a designing bone in your body, you can also check out Etsy for designs that you can purchase and cut at home. SVG files will work with most cutting machines – check if yours can use them.
You can also buy vinyl decals that you can then place onto your glass block.
Alternatively, if you don’t have a cutting machine, and the design isn’t too tricky to cut by hand, see if you can buy a PNG file that you can print in reverse on the back of some vinyl, and cut by hand.
Intricate designs are best done using a cutting machine such as the Cricut Explore Air™ 2 and using it with your own designs
