Arendtsville, PA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

Accent Building Products, an online distributor of home renovation products, offers predrilled glass block for the holiday season to crafters, artists, and decorators. Typically thought of as a building block for windows and interior walls, glass block is used to create gifts and decorations throughout the Christmas season and winter months.

Offered in three patterns – wavy, prismatic diamond, and icy – Accent's glass block allows crafters flexibility by also having several size options. These patterns create privacy for homeowners using it in preassembled glass block windows where energy efficiency and ease of installation are important. For the decorator or crafter, these patterns create visual interest.

People also use glass block in centerpieces and table decorations for celebrations. It has a frozen look that translates well to winterscapes and ice-themed decorations. It is used to accent ice sculptures, as risers for Christmas village scenes, and as a lighted base for clear vases.

Glass block can also be used to create a gift look that is accented with ribbons and stickers. Or a print, such as a holiday card, can be mounted on the face of the block to showcase the image. A strand of lights can be inserted into a hole in the back of the glass block and plugged in or a small battery-powered light can be inserted, if no power source is nearby.

“At Accent we have offered glass blocks as a building product for many years,” says Lawrence DePippa, Internet Marketing Manager of Accent Building Products. “We were accustomed to talking about glass block windows and walls with our customers but we were taken by surprise when we began hearing from crafters with a unique problem. They told us that drilling a hole into a glass block is difficult and more often than not resulted in an imploded, broken piece. So we decided to offer glass blocks that are predrilled, saving the crafter time, sweat, and financial loss.”

Whatever the application, glass block offers a unique look at a compelling price. Homeowners have used it for glass block showers and walls for decades and now crafters can use it for artistic works and decorations.
