I used a Concrete Block Adhesive to hold it together. I found it at Home Depot in the glue section. Hope that helps. To keep the dirt in I just used metal screens and block adhesive. Here is a photo of the underside of one of the blocks.

This would be cool if we painted the ciderblocks with some metallic colors that kinda glittered in the sunlight. Even cooler if there was some sorta solar powered glow in the dark clear gloss we could coat it with. http://www.glowpaint.com.au/Glow-In-The-Dark-Acrylic-Indoor-Outdoor-Paint-Premium-Green.html
