jack-o-lantern blocks

i {heart} simple crafts. and glass blocks are like the staple craft.….everyone has to have at least one! they look great and are ridiculously easy to do. i recently teamed up with Lindsey at WordyBird to design these jack-o-lanterns.
aren’t they scary cute?
i used two 8×8 inch square glass blocks and one 4×8 inch glass block.
these would be perfect to put lights in so that they light up on Halloween night.
or you can tie a strip of black burlap around the block too for a fun twist. 
these jack-o-lantern vinyl decals can be found at WordyBird. you can also check out Lindsey’s blog Understating Elegance for more ideas on how to use vinyl decals. Lindsey and i are working on some other designs so stay tuned!
happy crafting!

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    I LOVE these! SO cute… and you're right, they would be perfect with a light behind them! Or on a square candle holder so that you could put a candle inside. I can't wait to see what else you guys come up with! :]

    These are great! I see bats, ghosts, haunted houses, witches, and spiders also being cute!

    I have some orange vinyl laying around and this is a great idea…I think I may make some and put them on my dinning room door windows.

    I design and cut vinyl, too, and made some similar blocks. Instead of faces, though, I wrote Boo! In a scary font inside an orange pumpkin with a thick green ribbon around the block. It was great! Let me know if you'd ever like to work together!
