My son just gave me about 10 lbs of marbles. They are what we used to call "pures". I have racked my brain as to what I can do with them and have'nt come up with anything. Any ideas?

    You could put them in clear glass vases and use them to hold flowers straight. You could also make stepping stones and use them for a design.

    Use a clear glass wide vase and fill with marbles and big bouquet of flowers like azaleas.

      Thanks Mary. Yes I can do that. I certainly have enough of them for that and other things. :-)

    They are great in the bottom of a flower vase to secure in place your arrangement and add some definition at the bottom of the vase.
    I also put them in clear (any color) container. They add texture without being 'busy'.

    You can get a glass patio table or old window and attach the marbles with glue then seal with polyurethane. The window can be hung inside or outside like a picture, preferably with light shining through it.

      Ok. Now the creative juices are flowing. Your table idea is good only I could use resin. I got it for another project that I scrapped. Now I'm out to look for the perfect table. Thank you.

    make stepping stones and put them in the concrete with enough of the marble showing to add some color. Or, pour them in the bottom of flower pot trays to set the pot on. Use them in vases to hold flower arrangements in place.

    I've collected a bunch of acorn tops and I have glued marbles inside the caps to make flashy looking "acorns" out of them. I took a drill to drill holes in the acorn tops and strung string thru them and then glued the marble in place over the string. They can then be strung together to make mobiles or wind chimes. They look great!

    Those sound adorable Donna. I just might try that if Ican find some acorns. Not too many oak trees nearby but shouldn't be too hard to find.
