Does anyone have any outdoor decorating ideas for glass bricks?

I have a bunch left over from the stores. Any ideas on what I could do outside? I thought about lining the patio, but that area is too deep for the bricks to even show.

  • My cousin used them to make a box against the house to store her water hose. She put clear Christmas lights inside of them and it was really pretty lit up at night.

  • If there is a side that is open, use them as planters for flowers or herbs.

  • That's cool older! Wonder if you'll slip and fall easily when it's wet.

  • the glass brick can be textured with an anti slip agent, I am sure...so it won't be slippery when wet, but putting lighting underneath has a cool dramatic effect....

  • OH! I was at the museum of clean the other day and they had the neatest art station for kids. You can take white board makers and let the kids draw on them and then wipe it off with water and a rag. you could create like a paving stone path and let the kiddoes draw all over them

    2 birds with one stone, err umm, glass brick :)
