May Arts Ribbonista Christmas Blog Hop!

It's Kendra here again with a May Arts Christmas Blog Hop

You should have arrived here from The Bald Dragonfly 
 Everyone projects are so amazing!  Be sure to hop through the entire hop and don't miss out on any of the days...these is much more to come on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday!
My project today is perfect for your own home or as a gift for a friends home.

You will need a few items:
May Arts Ribbon in the following colors:
Glass Block that has been predrilled
a Small set of Christmas Lights
Wire
Scissors
Wire Cutter

The first thing you are going to do it cut 2 lengths of ribbon to tie around your glass block.  I hid the first one at the bottom and the second one in the back, you could hid the tied part behind the first ribbon if you desire.


You will then push your lights carefully though your Glass Block Hole where it is predrilled.


Now you will make your bow and attach it to your ribbon on the top of your glass block.  I made a tutorial earlier this week showing how to make your bow.  You will find it here.  I use the wires to wrap around the ribbon to secure it well.


Plug your glass block light in and decide is this one is for you or a friend.  They are easy to store from year to year.

Be sure to leave me a comment on how you liked this project.  If you are not already a subscriber, take a moment to become one.  I love to share ideas and projects with you!

You are now going to hop on to Ling's Design Studio
If you missed yesterday be sure to check out the following blogs.
   
Merry Christmas and Happy Scrappin' from my family to yours!
