DIY Glass Block Night Lights Using Holographic Paper

If you've been on Pinterest lately, you probably have noticed two things - there are a lot of crafts made using self-adhesive vinyl quotes or graphics, and there are a lot of clear glass blocks turned into night lights. So today we're happy to bring to you some of our latest DIY Glass Block Night Lights!  The cool thing about our projects is that we add a holographic paper to the front of the glass block which creates a cool effect - it's like the colors change as the light hits the paper. When the holographic paper is seen from different angles, it will appear in various colors, creating a glowing effect.

Vinyl: Sloth - Live Slow

Create Fashionable Designs with Marabu Liner and Spray Paints

Has you will see, we've been having lots of fun creating wearable art with Marabu Design Fashion Liners and Sprays. You can use a stencil or self-adhesive vinyl to create a new design every time.


If you use a stencil, make sure to use a spray adhesive on the back before positioning it on your fabric. It will help keep it still while you spray and will give you a sharper design. Make sure to remove the stencil as soon as you are done. You don't want to leave it on the fabric too long, this would leave a glue residue on your piece.

Check out Marabu's video tutorial on how to use stencil with the Marabu Design Sprays. https://youtu.be/BdYfKWjOVyM
