Large Glass Vases - What could I put in them?

I have acquired two large glass vases (see through) and want to put something in them other than flowers! They are very big, any suggestions? I have bought 200 multicoloured glass pebbles, but they don't even fill one of them half way, so want ideas on what I could put in the rest of the vase/ what I can put in the other? Thanks :)
P.s (the vases are to go in the living room as decoration)

I had a similar problem with large glass vases and I used coloured gravel and glass beads in layers.

But before putting the gravel and beads in I cut blocks of polystyrene - left over packing stuff to put in the middlee of the vases so I used much less gravel and beads. The vases were light enough to move and we saved some cash. You could maybe use a rolled up cushion or pillow.

Garden centres and DIY stores like B and Q will sell small bages of decorative gravel and often have damaged bags for sale at 1 or 2 quid.
The gravel should be rinsed off with water and allowed to dry before putting in the vases.
