I’ve tried marbling a few times so far and have yet to be disappointed by the results! The color combinations are endless, plus you can marble just about any surface.

If you haven’t given a try yet, here are nine great (and easy) projects will hopefully inspire you to get making!

As if you didn’t know this by now, I’m sliiiightly addicted to turning old bottles into vases (see here and here). What can I say, I’m a craft-supplies hoarder. This was my first time experimenting with this marbling technique (I’ve marbled paper with shaving cream in the past), and although it wasn’t perfect right away, I’m now hooked! Have you ever tried marbling before? I’d love to know how it went!
Oh yes, and be sure to head over to Poppytalk to see the full marble dipped vase tutorial.
