What To Do With Old Glass Marbles?


1. Polymer Clay and Marble Snails

Etsy Shop Orange Hound has come up with a super cute idea you can try for your garden. By using polymer clay you can make the body of a snail and top it with a glass marble to mimic a shell. Then make the antennae with metal wires. You can make as many as you want and put these critters in different parts of your home’s outdoor area.

2. Baked Marble Pendants

Hopeful Night Owl has shared a super creative way to make pendants out of baked marbles. The term baked marbles means a process of baking marbles in oven for about 20 minutes and then immediately adding them to ice cold water so that they develop cracks internally. Then you can attach caps and rings to string them for making necklaces.
