Fantabulous Cricut "Deck the Halls" Crawl!

Welcome to Crafting Cricut Mom and the third Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! This is my 1st time in a blog hop and I'm so excited you've joined us and stopped by my blog!!

In honor of the approaching Christmas holiday, we're having a "Deck The Halls" Crawl...each Design Team member will be featuring an original Christmas/Holiday-themed project that could be used to decorate and spruce up their homes for the Holiday Season!

If you've come from visiting Erin at SpantastiKreations you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Deck The Halls" project at FCCB!

How fun is that?

For my project, I've made a glass block light.  I've made these before as gifts, but never made one for my own house.  This one will go in my daughter's room since she loves penguins.  But I have another to show you tomorrow that will stay in my kitchen!  It's a great way to "Deck the Halls"!

Here's a picture of the block all lit up.

I used Create a Critter for the penguin and cut him at 4 inches.  I used black, white, red and yellow vinyl for him.  The snowflakes came from Joys of the Season and are cut at 1 inch each.  I just hand cut a 'snow mound' for the penguin to stand on. The glass block came from Hobby Lobby and so did the 35 strand of lights that are inside. 

I used Krylon Frosted Glass spray on the blocks before applying my vinyl.  And I finished it off with very glittery snowflake wired ribbon.  These are so super easy to make and are great gifts and decorating items!

I do have some Cricut Crawl Candy for you!  Up for grabs is a brand new in the package Cricut Gingerbread Cartridge!!  For your chance to win, please leave one comment and be a follower of my blog.  I will close entries on Sunday night and announce the winner on Wednesday, December 22 when the winner at FCCB will be announced as well.

Now it's your turn! Let's see your Christmas/Holiday-Themed Decor projects! Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project and enter at FCCB!

Next stop is Jamie's blog at Cute Cards and Crafts by Jamie. Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!

Happy Crawling!
Helen
