Make a gorgeous light up present to cheer up your tree until Santa arrives with everything else. After the holidays, use this lovely craft as a bookend or nightlight.
Begin with a glass block from your local building supply store. They all sell them in a variety of sizes.
Drill a hole in the side about a half inch in diameter. I didn’t have the tools for this, but my hometown hardware store did it for me for a couple dollars. I love to shop local and this is just one reason why!
Gently insert a short strand of lights. I used the 20 light variety. Two dollars from the same hardware store.
Now the fun part! Using Mod Podge or acrylic medium, glue down tiny scraps of tissue paper. I used Japanese tissue paper from an art supply store but any tissue will work. You could also use plain white tissue that you stamped with your favorite stamps and colored ink. The sky is the limit!
Allow to dry and add a bow or other garnish as you desire. Plug in and enjoy the festive glow!
