Glass block crafts

imblessedDecember 5, 2006

Hi. I just joined today. I would like to make the glass blocks with the lights in them and I am wondering if anyone uses the acrylic blocks instead of glass. If so, where is the best place to purchase them? If not, where do you buy the glass?

Welcome, welcome, welcome, so glad you joined and jumped right in. In this forum, at the top, do a search for "glass block lights." I'm positive you will find many posts on them. Never heard of the acrylic blocks. Otherwise, my sis did a few of the glass ones, and she got hers at places like Home Depot or other homebuilding centers/stores. Even in your web browser line - just type "glass block lights" and again, I'm sure several sites will come up for your look click on and look at.

Here is a site on HGTV that you can look at the glass blocks a lady did and had her work shown on the Carol Duval Craft Show. They certainly are lovely. Copy and paste the site to your web browswer line.

Here's a source for the acrylic blocks, tho I am sure home centers carry them, too.
