You can put tons of things in the clear plastic ornament. My fave is swirling a couple of colours of paint together inside. :)
You can google it, but I think I rinsed out the clear ornaments with rubbing alcohol, let it dry. Then added acrylic paints one at a time. Swirl it around to cover ornament & let excess paint drip out by putting in disposable paper cup!
