Someone gave my fiance these stone cubes for Christmas last year and he has used them once. You keep them in the freezer and they are supposed to keep a drink cold without having the ice melt and water it down. He hates them, and I can't seem to find anyone who would like them... so what to do... upcycle!

But wtf do I do with these! They are literally stone cubes. Heavy, and fairly large. Here is a photo with a penny to reference for size. Help guys!

When it snows you have the perfect snowman's eyes and buttons Cheesy

You could turn them into dice, numbered or print silly things for each side, make a 3D O's & X's set, or use them as bases for those wire trees I've seen on here?

Fabric weights? Decorations for a fairy house?

I would use them for feet for shrines, altoid tins, etc.  How about making a small bag for them and using them as a cold compress for sore muscles or other injuries? Too heavy?  Could they keep soft drinks cold in a cooler?

You could make some cool pendants with those if you have a dremel and/or if you do wire wrapping.

Being a gamer, I like the dice idea. If you're not a gamer, I say sex dice. Everyone's a sex-gamer, right?

Maybe feet for a small nature shrine, or as a base for some sort of mixed media sculpture?
(realizing I have some of those in my freezer too, that I hate using.. hmmmmmm? Wink

Glue a bird or some animal like a hedgehog on top (well, not the REAL thing, of course Tongue ) and use the stone to anchor it in your flower box or garden.

Glue a glass on top of it and use it as a lantern on your balcony or in your garden.

Use the stones for decoration with your plants or as paperweights. Paint them. Decoupage them.

Just brainstorming ...
