momma to 8 yr old dd. Furmom to our menagerie: 2 , 1, 2 , 2 , and 1 silly rabbit.
Just a thought.
They're also good for storing loose herbs, spices, nuts, bolts, nails etc.

You could also use them to gift flavored butters or something like that in.
*Some of my whole spices (I placed all the bottles in a large cake pan for easy access).
*For my kids tempera paints (we just place the amount we need for that week in the little bottles and thin it down as much as needed).
Another idea I had seen was decoupage (sp?) the out side and then attach them to a sting of lights and hang them.
I like the herb idea, you could take fresh dried herbs or make mixtures for rubs and such to put in them.

Use an epoxy-based glue, otherwise the figures you glue inside will not stay stationery for long. Hot glue guns don't work for this project!!!!! Glue the figures to the lid, not the glass. Don't choose figures that are too tiny, or you won't see them above the rim of the jar lid.
Use clear or iridescent glitter in the water, and not too much! A good pinch or two is enough.
Add a teaspoon of glycerin to the water - it'll keep the glitter floating longer when you shake the globe.
Glue the lid on with epoxy-based glue.
If you just want rid of them, contact an elementary school in your neighbourhood. I bet some teacher could get use out of them. Our schools kindergarten teacher uses them to put jam in that the kids make for mothers day.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

I also have made cute little animals out of cotton balls, pipe cleaners and other various craft objects and glued them to the tops of the jars, then used the jars as paper-clip holders or safety pin holders or tack holders, or anything around the office holders, etc.... and I would give them to my mom or aunts or whatever. You could glue anything to the top actually and it would look nice (dried flowers, a broach that broke, seashells, etc.) I also have used them to decorate other people's baby showers by making cotton ball babies the same way as the animals and putting candy or chocolate in them and then handing them out as parting gifts.... yeah there are lots to do with jars!
