10 Ways to Upcycle Marbles

Sunday, March 1, 2015

Remember March marble madness in elementary school? I do and it was highly anticipated by most students. Marbles were like our currency and we would build play palaces in the sandbox called Casinos. Place your spherical bets! I wasn't much of a gambler but more so a collector. The shinier the pearl, the bigger deal it was to own. Cat eyes were the lowest ranking, FYI. They were the easiest to obtain and therefore had little value.

Now that I'm looking back at all that I'm realizing the gambling aspect is actually rather inappropriate for children but as children that goes unnoticed. Anyway, I still have my marbles sitting in a jar somewhere. Thanks to Pinterest, they've been brought back to my attention with all their creative re-uses I wish I had thought of. Here are some ideas that should catch your eye too...

1. Marble Garden Sphere

2. Marble filled fence

3. Wired Marble Mobile

4. Marble Earrings

5. Gag Gift Idea or Conversation Piece- Bottle full of Lost Marbles

6. Makeup Jars with Marble Topped Lids

7. Interchangeable Marble Necklace

8. Marble Acorn Ornaments

9. Marbles as Vase Filler

10. Colorful Marbles Wreath
