    The most common use I have seen is to put them in glass vases...and use them as filler for other decor projects.

    They are in a large glass vase now, and I feel that there has to be another use for them. Anyone?????????

    I have seen a post where they are placed into wooden privacy fence/gates to allow the sun to shine through.

    If you can, place some between two pieces of glass and frame. Then hang in front of a window with sunlight shinning through.

    Many years ago I placed marbles in a hot skillet , left them for a few minutes, then put them in ice water to shatter the insides. I had a small table and glued them onto the top. Made a pretty little plant table. Good luck!

    I've seen cement stepping stones made where the marbles are imbedded in the cement.

    grout flower pots and make flowers or just stick them in the grout all over the pots. I have one that my daughter made and it is beautiful

    bowling balls then use them for gazing balls for your garden or line an area in the yard as art

    If you have a stairway, you could place them in a long clear plastic tube and use that as a handrail along the stairway. Or like a rope light, line the back of an open shelf with light and marbles.

    Ghana for all you great suggestions, but nothing as "clicked" yet. Am I impossible to please and don't know what I want? That might be part of the problem, but can you humor me a bit more please. Thanks. :-)
