RE: Glass Blocks

Well, those are just as cute as they can be!!! Love that idea. Do you use a string of Christmas lights inside? And how do you drill the hole? Diamond bit?

Thanks for sharing with us!

RE: Glass Blocks

Yes, my DH drills the hole with a diamond bit. I use a small string of lights - usually 20-25 ct - as the larger strings make the block too hot. I modgepodge a graphic on (coz I cannot draw LOL) I've even used photographs and they work well if printed on heavy picture paper.
