Thomas Kinkade Decorated Glass Block

Hello. Our stamp club decorated glass blocks for Christmas, but I wasn't able to attend after I went and got all the stuff to do it. So tonight, I put it together. I think it turned out nice. The paper is from Cornish Heritage Farms, and is of course, Thomas Kinkade. By putting one light bulb on a cord (like you use in Christmas village houses), into the glass block, the light is concentrated on the house and it looks like his pictures actually do!. To finish it, I tied a wired ribbon around the glass block and made a matching bow to attach. The small snowflake and rhinestone finsihed it off. Weather is supposed to turn for the worse tomorrow and they are calling for snow all week! I guess I better find my winter boots, coat and gloves and scarf tomorrow! Until later....

This is beautiful! I'm trying to make one, but having a hard time with the light staying where I want it. How did you get your to stay in place that high?
