I was decorating my children's bathroom in tropical fish and when I tried to find some counter items to hold cotton balls and such I was less than impressed with the selection. Then I thought I would create some items so I went to my local Wal-mart and looked in the pet section for fish bowls.
The smallest was around 3 dollars. So I picked up 2 of them and while I was in the candle isle looking for a candle to go with the decor I noticed some glass bowls that looked the same as what I found in the pet aisle but at .77 cents vs. the $3.00 for the others.
I then bought some round glass beads found on the same candle aisle and hot glued them onto the bowls. so with a little imagination and luck I now have the perfect items for my bathroom, but at half the cost as it would have been.
