Fill My Head

Glass head in sun

Eric and I own an androgynous glass head, a lucky thrift store find. Over the years we've tried to come up with ways to fill it. Our ideas never pan out. I would love to fill this glass head with something awesome. Do you have any ideas? Please nothing super expensive; we once looked into filling it with vintage marbles until we realized that it would be a $100+ venture. I'm thinking more in the free or $5 range. Maybe it could be something we change regularly. Anyway, ideas???

My first thought was maybe a colorful and pretty potpourri, like lavender or rose petals...is that cheesy?

i had two ideas. one you could buy a pack of balloons and then blow it up inside the head so that it forms to the mold, that way you could change the color. the other idea was to fill it with ideas, colorful scraps of paper could be placed in a bowl with a pencil near the head and then when you, your hubby or guests have an idea they could write it down and place it in the head. then every month or so you could take them out and read them aloud.

My first thought was pennies - not sure why, but I think it would good filled with shiny copper coins :)

Would a couple of old cassette tapes fit inside? Pretty easy to get a few favorite songs stuck in your head :) Or maybe one old photo of the two of you... like a visual memory?

Fun find.
