Reusing Marbles (toy)
So I found a little sack of marbles that I had when I was younger. I wanted to reuse them for something, but I wasn't sure what to do with them. So I was wondering if all you crafty kids on here could throw some fun ideas my way.
well you can always wrap them with wire to create jewelry, or if you have any pain ones you can give them a crackled glass effect by boiling them and then dropping them on a hard surface. You could diplay them in a cute glass container, and even add some flowers if you like. hummmmm idk what else i'll keep thinking
Thanks for the ideas... I thought about wrapping them with wire. I always thought they made great jewelry pieces. I like the cracked glass effect idea.
You can do something like this >>

You wrap the ribbon around a marble then thread a bead to secure it and continue like that...
And I think it would actually look really cool with different sized marbles to create an uneven look
Hope that helps.
I normally use marbles to make flower vases look pretty, just pop a few of them into the vase, add water and flowers and voila!
O_O Kasia, those necklaces just blew my mind!!!!! I wish I had marbles so I couldn make some of those! Thanks for sharing that idea! <3
