We sell a ton of these really cute, four-inch-high, squat round bottled applejuices at my work and I always feel so sad throwing them away.  They don't have labels on them (the brand name and everything is kind of embossed on the glass, as are really cute apple leaves).  They're clear.   The idea is that they're supposed to look like an apple.   My first thought was to make candles with them - perhaps even applejuice-colored candles - but I wondered if you kids could come up with something less obvious?

my friend makes tiny terrarium worlds out of small bottles and clear glass xmas tree ornaments, complete with itty bitty plants, teeny ceramic props (eg, a footbridge), twisty wire trees, marbles, etc.

or, along the candle idea line, you coul twist some wire around them and make some kind of apple-jar-lumiere-mobile...

Gift in an apple shaped bottle?  You could fill them with drink mixes or spice mixes as gifts.  Here is a link to some recipes for that:

Too bad they probably have to same an opening for the other recipes.

How about a hummingbird feeder? Hummingbird feeders are basically a bottle with a thick plastic or glass straw with a fake flower on the end.
