Buying Pre-Drilled Glass Blocks

November 2, 2009

Forget the drilling, go to Michaels with a 40% coupon and get the blocks for $4. And they come with holes already. You can even use them as a bank.

I am looking for glass blocks with a hole and stopper. I would like to know where to find them and where I can find white lights to put in the block.

I saw them at Michael's Craft store here in California last week. The opening was about the size of a 50cent piece. If they don't have them at your local Michael's you might try their website.

Reading through your website this morning I saw the following:

Check your yellow pages under glass block distributors. They come in various sizes. 6x6, 6x8, 8x8, and a monster 12x12. They also have different glass effects. Home Depot and Lowe's are expensive. I pay under $3 each.

I have searched every way and place I could think of or find, with no luck. All the blocks I have found are 10.00 and up per block. Can you give me a website that I will be able to purchase the pre drilled blocks with a plug for $3.00 like you did? Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Last year the A.C. Moore crafts store chain advertised glass blocks for about $5 each. I don't know if they were pre-drilled or not. If not, I would use battery powered LED lights inside, but not the Christmas light strings. Small LED flashlights and stick-up lights give very good light and could be hidden by other decorations inside the block. I didn't get any last year, but am hoping they will repeat the sale this year.
