In case the glass bowls are made of clear glass, then you can also add in some rose petals or use it as a home for a small goldfish.
One other method of using clear art glass bowls is to fill them with colorful stones or marbles and by using this method it won’t matter exactly where you place them, because they will work great with your home décor.
