What can I do with 24 glass blocks?

GracieNancy TurnerDixie Patricia Cockrell


Got these blocks with a mixture of tiles through our local online freecyle group. I placed them lining my drive, but there MUST be something ELSE I can do! Thanks.

    Here's a bunch from pinterest, but there are a whole lot more:

    Go to or and type in ' what to do with glass blocks '. You will get a ton of ideas.

    Good luck!

      Thanks. I think I had a moron moment. Just didn't think of Pinterest.

    You could make light boxes using different colour lights inside....make a really cool planter display...

    Have you heard of Pinterest? Google it and query ideas for glass blocks. It's full of ideas on so many things.

    Back in the day we would have made a platform bed with them and stuck some colored lights under there for special effects.
    I recently saw a cool trick to vent a basement by filling in one of the windows with glass block leaving 1 square open to install a dryer vent to exhaust fumes out.

      Now, see, whoever did the basement thing planned ahead. My weakness is NOT planning ahead.  Thanks

    I saw a guy selling these individually as Christmas decorations. He filled each one with ornaments and lights. Not bad.

    You could make a multi level plant stand, even go so far as to paint only the edges with different bright colors to tie in with the flower colors.

    You could put a stencil on them and put lights inside along with fake "snow". They look great.
