They stand up well to cold, wet weathers. Here is a step by step tutorial, lets get started!
Time: 25 MinutesCost: $6Difficulty: Easy
Lights 20 count
Spray Paint (Satin Heirloom White)
Then you will want to poke the lights into the cardboard making a circle. You will want to remember to leave the center with no lights because that's where we will glue the bow.
I then sprayed the block and cardboard with the satin heirloom white. You could use whatever color you wanted.
Next I put the lights in the holes and glued them in. I started on the side where the plug is where I used the notch in the cinder block to hide the light cord.
I start by making a loop as my center to make the bow. Then I twisted and formed loops all the way around. I used ribbon wire so it makes it hold its shape and stay popped up.
Here is my bow I made. I used the wire that was around the lights in the box. You want to make sure to wire it real tight, then cut and tuck it under so no one can see it.
When you attach your bow you will want to hold it down for a minute or so, allowing the glue to fully dry.
There you have it a shabby chic cinder block present. This cute craft can be used in or outside and is a great addition to your holiday décor.
