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

You can also purchase Cricut Access Premium which has unlimited use of over 100,000 covet‑worthy, cut‑ready premium Cricut images. Don’t forget the vinyl!

Throughout the list of awesome ideas are also links to where you can buy supplies for decorating glass blocks. Have fun!

If you do purchase from the list below, make sure you read the seller’s Item Details to understand what it is you are buying – a downloadable file, a decal, or the whole decorated block.
