Begin with a glass block from your local building supply store. They all sell them in a variety of sizes.

Drill a hole in the side about a half inch in diameter. I didn’t have the tools for this, but my hometown hardware store did it for me for a couple dollars. I love to shop local and this is just one reason why!
