Recycle This is an amazing blog about how to reuse and recycle anything. Just ask the question. Recently, a question about marbles came up and I had to tune in.
Some of the reader ideas and creative suggestions included:
- gathering them up for a backyard project by placing them for stepping stones outside for a colorful zen garden.
- using a huge washing-up bowl with loads of marbles, filling it with hot water, essential oils and soaking your feet for a footsie massage by rolling them over the marbles.
Any more more suggestions? These are pretty creative. I like the idea of using them in garden sculptures, ikebana centerpieces, or using them in artwork, like something as simple as a still life.

put them in a bowl of water with floating candles…
Put them in a vase with bamboo plants instead of those store bought glass pebbles
we use marbles for marble painting.
a little bit of something for you over at my pad…
I like colorful marbles in a clear glass jar or vase. A nice thing to look at on a window sill. Or you could set a votive holder in a short wide square vase with marbles filling in the space around the votive holder and light them up with a tealight inside. I’ve done it with seaglass instead of marbles and it makes a beautiful centerpiece.
