Last year I shared this idea I saw in a home here in my small town..
A few of us made one..or 2 ..or more:)
Anyway..just in case you have never seen this..they are fun to do..
You simply buy a glass block that they sell in hardware stores.. the kind they use to make part walls or shower enclosures etc..
and have someone or yourself..drill a hole at the back.. large enough to fit a string of mini lights.. insert the strand.. leave the plug hanging out..and wrap it like a present..It becomes a lovely bright and shiny gift!
Use caution..I never leave them on when I am out..
But I have touched my blocks and they are not too warm.I do have this one on a small coaster because it's on a dark wood table..I have let it peek out for you to see...But on my glass tables..no protection.
