What to do with a hefty stash of marbles? Why, make marble towers of course. Better yet, make them lighted marble towers! We had a lot of fun putting these together with a few simple supplies we had on hand.
I’m sure I don’t have to caution you that this is not a craft for smaller children because we all know that marbles are a big choking hazard for kids who like to put things in their mouths! However, it’s a fun project for the older kids and might keep them busy for . . . a few minutes at least!
Supplies for Marble Tea Lights
- glue gun
- tea lights
- jar lids
Start by gluing marbles around the base of the tea light. We used hot melt glue for our project, but be aware that the bond on a smooth glass surface is not really strong, so careful handling is necessary. If you want a more permanent bond, use E6000 glue.
Keep building until you have made a dome over the tea light.
Place the marble towers on jar lids for a cute display.
At night, turn the tea light on for a soft glow.
