What I use those Glass Water Globes for? Can I use a glass cutter and do something with them?
I am tired of seeing them sitting around and not being used. Thanks

Will they float with the bulb side up if you put them in water? I seem to remember someone using them in as floating "bubbles" in a fish pond or water garden.

I googled 'glass water globes' and found several kinds.
What kind do you have?

This is the glass globes. I got two sets like these. What can I do with these? The main trouble is the flower beds are rock gardens. They are beautiful. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

wow!!!!!! They are lovely! *Want, want want!!!* :)

They would look lovely in a 'suncatcher'.

Could you remove most of the 'stem' and smooth off the sharp edges and then make a suncatcher using copper wire wrapped around the water globe and then with smaller glass marbles below it or some glass beads dangling from the copper wire. (VERY hasty sketch attached.)

I have one but I just stick it in a planter for the beauty of it. It would be a nice totem topper if you glued it inside a skinny vase.

I have a few. Always pick them up at thrift stores or garage sales when I see them. I've stuck a couple of blue ones into tall blue glass wine bottles that sit in my window. They look like fancy bottle toppers. Others have just gone out into the garden with the plants like exotic toad stools.

Could you make a humming bird feeder out of one?

Thanks for your ideas.They are so pretty. I can't put them in our flower beds, because they are rock flower beds.
And they would be broke before I went back in the house.
Thanks Again!

I think they would be great as a totem topper or stuck in a pot with a plant.

One possibility could be to change it into a hummingbird feeder. You can buy the hummingbird feeder tubes on etsy as well as other places. I don't know if you can get one that the cork will fit, but good luck. I would love them to use as intended in plants during the winter.
