Baby Snoopy Glass Block Night Light

I’m going to a baby shower this weekend. A friend of mine is having a new grandson and the theme is baby Snoopy. So I decided to make this night light. I had purchased a craft block on clearance at Christmas (because it was labeled with a Christmas tag!). So from my “stash” I already had the glass block, black and light blue vinyl, tulle and ribbon. The only things I had to purchase were the lights inside ($2.99 with 40% off at Hobby Lobby) $1.20 and the yellow vinyl ($1.99 with 50% off at Michael’s) $.99. 

Materials:

Glass Craft Block (mine was 7″)

1/2 yard tulle

adhesive vinyl

small string of lights

ribbon for bow on top

Directions:
  1. Use a cutting machine (I have a Cricut) to cut vinyl design of choice. I found the baby Snoopy picture online and used a font called “Arigato” for the name. Adhere the vinyl to the glass block. This video is great for showing how to avoid getting bubbles in your vinyl. If you look closely you can see I had a few bubbles in my letter “D” which I noticed after I took the picture!
  2. Wrap your tulle around your string of lights.
  3. Open the bottom of your glass block and push the tulle/lights into the block. Plug it in and arrange the lights to your liking.
  4. I cut a little “v” on the edge of the seal so my lights would lay flat (the hole in the middle was not large enough to slip the lights through). Then replace the seal.
  5. Make a bow and glue it to the top. Here is a video on how to make a bow. My small loops were made out of the yellow ribbon and the large loops out of the blue polka dot. (I don’t know how we learned to do all these things before youtube!)

That’s it! Pretty easy and doesn’t take much time at all!

  2. What an awesome idea for a baby shower gift! I’m sure the soon-to-be new parents are going to love it.

  3. How adorable. This will be a special gift for the baby and who doesn’t love Snoopy!

  4. Snoopy was my son’s nursery theme too over 20 years ago. I have always loved Snoopy so this project is awesome to me. Thanks so much for sharing.

  5. Roseann, I think you have a new craft, or at least it’s new to me. I’ve never seen any with glass blocks, but I like this! If you’re giving your friend with the grandson the glass block as a gift, I think they will be thrilled with it! Handmade is always nicer. I always like lights inside of glass.
    Visiting you from the Challenge.

  6. This is really cute, what a fun night light.

  8. Gotta love the 40% OFF coupon for Hobby Lobby! This project turned out great! I love the Snoopy and I wouldn’t have noticed a bubble in your vinyl if you hadn’t pointed it out 🙂

  9. That is so cute. I love how it turned out.

  10. I love glass blocks and decorating them! I just love what you created and I am such a Snoopy fan. Brings back wonderful childhood memories!
