Bath bombs? I hate using them in the bath but some of the sparkly ones in a large clear vase sit in my bathroom as a decoration and I love the way they look. They do get dusty though so I’d look into getting a bit of shrink wrap or something on the top so it looks clear.

Or you could fold some origami flowers for a take on the origami crane in a vase look.

We have a few different things that I use as vase fillers on a couple of vases we have around the house.  I usually change them out seasonally, so that it’s a little different.  In the summer, I have some (plastic but real looking) lemons and limes.  At the holidays, I use Christmas bulbs.  In the winter, we had some pinecones.  I’ve also done beach sand/shells or rocks in clear glass vases.

I really love the idea of using lemons in large glass vases, they are inexpensive and add that pop of colour!

I saw a wedding theme with corks in a vase before


A little different idea but I keep a mason jar full of stuff thats useful and kinda display it … like bathroom items

I keep a pretty planter pot on my bathtub filled with bath salt

I keep little mason jars in my craft room on shelves filled with buttons and sequins and things.

I love doing keepsake in a jar type ideas… kinda similar concept to shadow box only smaller items
