Semi-Custom Tree Decor: Clear Glass Ornaments

Last night I attended a Christmas tree viewing where decorated trees are auctioned off for charity. One easy but effective custom detail that kept popping up involved clear glass bulb ornaments:

You can put anything inside of them, instantly customizing your tree. This could also be done sans tree by hanging ornaments from a wreath, window, or chandelier.

A few ideas I spotted last night for what to put inside:

  • candied sprinkles
  • glitter
  • beads
  • feathers
  • herbs (loved this idea!)

These can be purchased in many craft and discount stores and are online at Amazon, 16 for $30.

What would you put inside of your clear glass ornaments for holiday decor that's semi-customized for you? Let's hear some more ideas below!
