Welcome to Divine Domesticity and the third Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! I'm so glad that you decided to join in the holiday fun with us!
In honor of this joyous season we're having a "Deck the Halls" Crawl in which each Design Team member will be showcasing a Christmas or holiday themed home decor project - all made using a Cricut of coarse! I'm the first stop on the crawl, and I'm so glad that you have found your way here.
I have been using these glass blocks for about 3-4 years now, but this is the first year that I have been able to decorate one using a Cricut! I have to say, it's so much easier! If you are looking for a quick and easy project with maximum "ooohh, aaahhh" factor, this is the project for you. I made these for a boutique that I participated in recently - hence the price tags. Incidentally, don't mind the price. I know, I know - I was practically giving them away. I was mostly looking to use up some supplies that I had on hand.
I bought these blocks at Home Depot and my husband was good enough to drill the hole in the back so I could put the Christmas lights in. In order to do that you have to have a diamond tip drill bit, and quite honestly, it's a bit of a pain. Thankfully, a lot of craft stores sell these blocks with the holes already in them, and some even with slits in them so you can use the blocks as a piggy bank. Isn't that a good idea? I might have to try that...
Cricut Cartridge: Create a Critter (Peace), Beyond Birthdays (Peace on Earth), Winter Frolic (Merry & Bright and Frosty)

And now it's your turn. We would love to see your Christmas/holiday themed home decor projects that you have made using your Cricut. 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!
