Did you get glass vases or glass bowls for home décor and don’t know what to do with it? While sometimes glassware and high-end glass art can be beautiful all by itself, it is always nice to have several different decoration options.
Here are some things that you can put in them to brighten a corner of your house.
The most obvious thing to put in a flower vase! You can vary the length of the stem or color of the flowers to give variations. (Before you decide on a color, check out the color psychology of various colors and how you can use them in everyday life.)
With glass bowls, try cutting the stems short and arranging the flowers in a bouquet form, or fill the bowl with water and let the flowers float around.
2. Stones, Pebbles, and Sand
Stones and pebbles of various shapes, sizes, and colors can be placed in a glass vase or bowl to make it look like an indoor pond.
They are also easily combined with other objects for more sophisticated decorations. i.e. You can put pebbles at the bottom of the vase, then fill it with water, and put flowers in it.
Another advantage of this type of decoration material is that it is reusable. Stones don’t easily wear away or wilt!

3. Candles (with Water)
Ideal for a romantic evening.
Always keep in mind that safety comes first! Never let children run around lit candles.
4. Clips, Nails, Coins, and Buttons
Glass bowls are ideal as an organizer – especially if its design and the general style of your home is fun and modern, you can put these small colored objects in the bowl to keep your house clean and to decorate the room.

Have candies readily available for guests and family members by putting them in a glass bowl. Bright-colored candy wraps can be decorations in themselves.
6. Pen & Pencils
Shorter glass vases and glass bowls can be used as pen & pencil organizers. Play with different colored vases and colored pencils for a rainbow palette.

7. Leaves and Seashells
Bring the forest and sea shore to your house by putting these natural objects in the glass vase or glass bowl. Either fill the glassware with water or add some sand so the decoration looks complete as a whole.
