Are you talking about painting a snowman on a glass block & putting lights inside the block so light shows through like they did last year on the "Crafts & Decorations forum" or are you talking about a snowman made out of a bunch of glass blocks?? Jan

AC Moore shows one in their flier today maybe you can figure it out from that, it looks pretty easy. Button eyes and mouth, larger buttons down his stomach, an orange button for his nose, a scarf and ear muffs. It looks like they put either lights inside or spray painted the glass blocks.

Since that is an indoor thing (not garden junk)
you might try 'that home site' forum and both the
craft sites there. Also HGTV holiday crafts forum.

Drat! Janie just gave away several ice cube snowmen ornaments to the neighbor - honest. She used to hang them on the naked branches in the garden to reflect the winter sun into the kitchen window.

I used a small block for the head and larger for the body. I made a simple stocking cap and a scarf out of plaid fleece. The eyes, nose, mouth and buttons were all different sized buttons. I stuck them together with Velcro and put white lights with white cords inside after drilling a hole.
