If you’re looking for flat marbles to use in your bottle lamp project, we’re able to point you in the right direction.
It was a couple years ago that we first introduced our own bottle lamps with these unique fillers. Not only do these flat glass marbles cover the cord inside the bottle but they also help replicate the bottles original content. I always loved this look and so do a lot of our readers.
We put a link on our resources page to help other DIY’ers find them, until Helen pointed out a problem to us in an e-mail earlier today:
Nick and Silke,
I have been trying to get a hold of that filler that you used in your Jack Daniel’s bottle lamp. The link on your resources pages takes me to a screen that says currently unavailable. Is there any other place that sells them? This will be a retirement present and I need to finish it A.S.A.P.
Love your site,
With the retirement party closing in I wanted to make sure that Helen was able to finish her bottle project in time.
A little snooping around online actually revealed a source for flat marbles at a better price and quality. Sold by Modern Vase & Gift, these fillers come in 5 – (1) lb. bags. This will allow you to keep the marbles you don’t use nicely packaged for your next project.
The amount of marbles included in one order will be more than enough to fill Helen’s liquor bottle. We are hoping that she will send us a picture of her finished project for our DIY Show Off page! ;)
