My niece has been collecting these for me, and I'm stumped.

They have a pebbled exterior, just like the surface of an orange, and are about 6" tall.

I have a little set with bath oils, but I'd appreciate any ideas!

THOSE ARE GORGEOUS. make them into lanterns and line your walk. assuming you have a walk. if not, make one! and then line them with orange bottle lanterns. those are really really pretty though. and maybe you can paint them..ish. and then make all different coloured lanterns. oh i wish i was you i'd do that. Cool

I once wrapped wire around the necks of similar juice bottles, wrapped it up into a little loop on the top, and used it to hang them from the wall in a vertical line as bud vases.  I got a lot of compliments on them.

You could also swirl the insides with glass paint in various colors and then stuff christmas lights into them as little lamps. 

Or wrap them with wire at the top to make them look like lightbulbs, and then....do something cool with them.  I don't know. 

Make some kind of marquis-llike light board with them, by cutting holes in a wooden board big enough to fit the necks through, then stick lamp wirings or christmas lights into them from the back.  You could do this with the insides painted with glass paint, as long as it's the heat set kind (like pebeo).  If you had enough, you could spell something out; or you could just do a row and hang it up somewhere.

put candles in them and hang the like patio  lanterns!!!!! or turn them upside down and shove em into the ground (never to astound passers by with beauty again) and make a bottle driveway thing. with just the circle bottoms pokin out.

You can wrap them in yarn thats been dipped in a glue then break the bottle out & you have x-mas ornaments like they did in trading spaces.

I would soak off the label & line them up in a window that you dont need much privacy. Color the water with food coloring & add a fake flower.

If you have a glass cutter you can cut of the top flip it over & put it back in the bottom part of the bottle. Add a taper candle and any filling you want in the bottom like shells or marbles. I've seen this done with wine bottles its really cool.

If you have a torch you can score the bottle. break it then make glass beads of of it. DIY how to:
