Festival of Light Luminary

By:

Celebrate Hanukkah with this Festival of Light Luminary.  Made with a KraftyBlok and a selection of mosaic chips, this beautiful glass project is a wonderful way to celebrate the miracle of light.  Best of all, you can easily have this on display in your home year-round.

Festival of Lights Luminary

Materials:

  • Original KraftyBlok™
  • 2 - 5oz pkgs Jennifer’s Mosaics™ Blue Cathedral Stained Glass Chips
  • Contact Paper
  • Clear Mosaic Adhesive
  • String of Lights or a Lightbulb with a 6’ Cord
  • Craft Knife or Scissors
  • Krylon® Frosted Glass Finish
  • 28” Length of Blue/Silver Ribbon
  • 6 Rhinestones
  • Pattern

 

Instructions:

  1. To protect work surface, cover with newspaper.
     
  2. Remove the labels and clean all surfaces of the KraftyBlok™.
     
  3. Spray both sides of the KraftyBlok™ with Krylon® Frosted Glass Finish following the manufacturer’s instructions, allow to dry.
     
  4. While paint is drying, enlarge the pattern to fit the block surface.
     
  5. Place pattern on the work surface and tape down.
     
  6. Cut a piece of contact paper a little larger than the pattern. Remove the backing from the contact paper and place sticky side up over the pattern, tape into position.
     
  7. Nip 3/4” blue cathedral stained glass chips in half and place them along the perimeter of the pattern to form the border. Leave 1/8” between each piece.
     
  8. Randomly nip blue cathedral glass tiles into random shapes. Fit shapes like a jigsaw puzzle into the body of the star. MOSAIC TIP: Never nip over the contact paper as it may cause the paper to become less tacky. For nipping instructions, visit our Creative Corner at www.DiamondTechCrafts.com.
     
  9. When paint has dried, position the KraftyBlok™ on your work surface, with the 8” x 8” surface side up and the stopper opening facing down, towards you.
     
  10. Apply mosaic adhesive to the glass and place the mosaic, glass side down onto the surface of the KraftyBlok™. Allow mosaic to dry overnight.
     
  11. When the glue has sufficiently dried (refer to manufacturer’s instructions), remove contact paper.
     
  12. Using an adhesive apply one rhinestones between each of the points on the star.
     
  13. Wrap a 28” ribbon around the side of the KraftyBlok™ and tuck the ends inside the opening and glue into place.
     
  14. Place the light bulb or string of lights inside the KraftyBlok™ for a stunning holiday glow.
