    I am looking for a good price on the predrilled glass blocks. I have done these for family and I would like to do a lot more Christmas. I have previously purchased at Lowes or Home depot and had my husband drill press them. Bu now I am looking for predrilled ones at a really good price. Thanks for your help!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I have no idea where you can buy them, but I'm dying to know what you do with them?

    I have cut Christmas Fabric panels and glued them to the front, then you insert a string of 10 mini lights through the hole, put a bow on top and voila! You can also etch them, put vinyl letters on them etc. If you want to see some great examples, go to www.etsy.com and type in glass blocks or lighted glass blocks. Some of them are quite lovely!

    I've seen these at Hobby LObby. You can always see their ads online and can get a free coupon, if there's one that week. They currently have %40 off one item through Saturday. You can print as many coupons as you'd like (they even say to share) so your hubby or grown kids and you can each use a coupon. Good Luck, they sound really pretty.

    You can get them at Pat Catan's Craft store. there is one in Pleasant hills, pa. I also think that Michael's has them. But watch the price. They are much more expensive to by predrilled than to drill them yourself. How does you husband drill them with out getting them to crack? I have made many before and I do them not only with christmas design but also with other colors of wired ribbon with clear lights in them and then they can be used all year.

    I have a friend that makes and sells them with seasonal ribbon and the clear christmas lights inside. Gives a nice glow to the corner of a den, family room or patio.

    Look in Hobby Lobby. I first saw them this summer and planned to get some later, but later has not come yet.

    Yes, I do the same for year round use. My husband uses a drill press and spritz's water on them!
