I hope someone can help me. I received a bunch of clear plastic fillable ornaments from a friend. I have all sorts of ideas of what to put in them. My problem is that there are no caps with them. Does anybody have an idea of how I could make a cap? Or can I use something besides a cap? I have about 100 of them and I really don't want to have to buy caps if I don't have to. I thought about gluing buttons on top and threading ribbon through the holes, but I'm not sure how that would look. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

I wonder if you could use the caps from plastic soda bottles? Depending on the size of your ornaments, they might be quite a bit bigger than the openings, but you could put some lace or something to cover the extra space. Then you could make holes in the top for wires or you could glue wires on top.

I would go with the button idea - thread your ribbon (or thread or whatever) through the button and hot glue (or your preferred glue) the button on the top. It should be sturdy enough to hang from. I would fill the top part of the opening with the glue - just to make sure.

I went with the buttons and ribbons and it worked great! I filled them with sequins, beads, pompom's, yarn ends, etc. What do you think?

Those look great! I'm glad you found a solution; we just checked with several of our suppliers for someone else, and no one had the "real" tops available. I love your ornaments.
