They are floral beads
They also are called “orbeedz” too. I use them in planters sometimes. You can get them in a bunch of different colors and brands.

u/effieokay · 56 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

FYI you can buy these at most stores for about a dollar, and yes they are ridiculously fun.

u/haahaahaa · 44 pointsr/gifs

They make smaller versions of this for "floating" things in water. Makes for a neat optical illusion. YOu can see them here. My wife used them for centerpieces at my sister-in-laws wedding. They start out as tiny ~1mm beads. You soak them in water and they swell to about the size of a marble. Shoving your hand into a bucket of them feels really cool. Somewhat therapeutic.

u/DogSnoggins · 24 pointsr/howto

Beginning with the odd title, this was a bit confusing.

Those aren't marbles, they are gardening gel beads, which are used to help retain moisture in potted plants (amongst other purposes). You add regular water to the gels.

If anyone is curious, this is what I ordered off Amazon

Orange Fake Crushed Ice Rocks,...

u/Miravek · 11 pointsr/boardgames

I use green plastic gems. Like the ones you can buy on amazon

I wish I could take credit for the idea but someone else did it first.

u/SuperDoofusParade · 7 pointsr/gardening

Get some clear glass beads (I got these). Put your flowers in the vase then pour the beads in there up to a few inches or when the flowers stop moving around. Helps the vase to not get top heavy or the flowers collapsing towards the sides.

u/blsmothermon · 6 pointsr/whatisthisthing

In my area, they are called 'flat marbles' and are frequently used in flower arrangements and other household décor.

It's these transparent gel beads I ordered off Amazon, they're pretty awesome :). They definitely stay suspended in there. the only issue is that they do float, so you can see them a bit at the top, but overall I'm really happy with them.

u/KiwiTerry · 3 pointsr/KeyforgeGame

Got them on Amazon, Ive seen a few others with the same ones. They’re not perfect, but definitely fun.

So - apologies for the length on this. My wedding is in December, about 150 people, with 7 bridesmaids and groomsmen.

I couldn't capture how truly wonderful these came out. One of my bridesmaids got started on the smaller bouquets and then did my big waterfall bouquet. My fiance helped with the corsages and boutonnieres. The grand total for everything - welcome sign, flowers, centerpieces, all came in under $450 and I'm super proud of finishing it up. I'll try to detail what I can and post links to places where I got flowers if someone asks!


Bridal Bouquet

I cannot take any credit for this - one of my bridesmaids had the vision and rolled with it. We bought peonies ($36), eucalyptus ($40), calla lillies ($40), and roses ($60) on Amazon. The last little bit of wispy flower at the bottom was a last minute buy at Michael's using a 50% coupon for $2.50. The roses are incredibly realistic and the full stems helped fill out the holders.

A florist would have certainly charged more than $400 just for something this size with the peonies. Similarly sized arrangements on Etsy were about $300-$350. And the flowers I bought for this leftover made all of the bridesmaid bouquets and misc arrangements!


Bridesmaids Bouquets



Same flowers as the bridal bouquet! We also used a lot of floral tape ($3, coupon), ribbon ($5, after Christmas sale), and floral wire from the stems of roses that I used on the centerpieces.


Corsages and Boutonnieres

These were so easy! I took leaves from the rose a peony bundles, then ordered some extra baby's breath ($13, Amazon). Wrapped with floral tape and some ribbon I got on a 50% sale at Hobby Lobby. My fiance did most of the boutonnieres and he was pretty proud of himself.


Welcome Sign

Got the mirror at a garage sale ($5, what a steal), had Mod Podge and glitter from the centerpieces. Exploring options of getting a friend with nice handwriting to write the welcome message, or buy a decal off of Etsy (<$25). My cat was needy today and wanted to be in every picture :)



Top w/ Table Number:

Low Light:


This has a lot of details. I first bought the cheap 1-20 wood table numbers on Amazon ($20, I think), the Mod Podge ($8), Fine Glitter ($10, Michael's), and mod podged the crap out of the numbers and layered on the glitter. This took several hours between drying and doing.

We then stumbled upon a $40 deal on Facebook marketplace that included 20 8" vases, 200 Dinopure White Roses, 25 purple fairy lights, various glass stones and beads, and an LED candle set.

I built on this by buying 100 more roses ($40, Amazon), 24x 3" styrofoam balls ($30, Amazon), 2 packs water beads ($15, Amazon), and two colors of the vase mix of floating pearls (Etsy, $40).

I hot glues the roses to the styrofoam balls with enough room for it to still fit on top of the vase. I then wrapped the fairy lights around that, and hot glued the table number to the top.

The water beads and floating pearls are an easy set up. Let the beads swell for a couple hours, pour in the vase and in layers add the beads and stir. Topping off with water gives the floating effect.


This was all enough to make ~18 centerpieces, 1 bridal bouquet, 7 bridesmaids bouquets, 12 boutonnieres, 5 corsages, 1 welcome sign, and we're using leftover flowers, vases, plus running medals (my and my fiance's hobby) to round out the decorations. I already have frames ($35, Micheals on 75% off plus extra 20% off super sale) and shimmer paper that I will DIY print any other signs needed.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/weddingplanning

Have you heard of those water jelly things? I don't know exactly how they work but basically you have some jelly balls and they turn transparent when filled with water like [this] ( I've never tried it myself but maybe the lemons would stay preserved longer?

u/Vulg4r · 2 pointsr/legendarymarvel

I have core, dark city, GotG, PttR, SW 1/2, deadpool, Captain America, and Noir. I'm pretty sure after the F4 reprint and x-men, I will be full. All my cards are sleeved in ultra pro standards, dividers are printed on 100 llb carstock and sleeved in BCW penny sleeves, and my GotG shard tokens were replaced with these and kept in an ultra pro deckbox

u/Textsubs · 2 pointsr/KeyforgeGame

Where did you get the Fake Ice Rocks for $2? I can only find thesefor $8.

u/Koosemose · 2 pointsr/dndnext

Poker chips work quite well, or those flat glass bead things (these things: But you can get a smaller bag of them for around a dollar, and 1 or 2 bags should be plenty).

I use both for assorted things around the table, currently use poker chips as inspiration, and an assortment of colors of the glass beads as monster tokens, and my players have taken to using some of my spare beads to mark consumable abilities such as ki points or superiority dice.

u/kingoftown · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Nothing fancy. Just 3 different colored vase fillers. There is 500 blue ones for about $10.

Your local hobby stores or box stores probably have some in stock too. They work great. 500 was a bit much, but it was $10 at stores for whatever. I already had 2 other colors in the house :P

u/spartangirlie · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

Super Z Outlet 1 Pound Bag Clear Water Gel Beads Pearls Vase Filler, Candles, Wedding Centerpiece, Home Decoration, Plants, Toys, Education. Makes 12 Gallons I got these

u/Melphor · 2 pointsr/KeyforgeGame

While not the same as what the OP has, craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Michaels sell plastic gems that are very similar. Also Amazon.

u/Andychives · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Played the game once: is this it?

Red Acrylic Ice Rock Crystals Treasure Gems for Table Scatters, Vase Fillers, Wedding, Banquet, Party, Event, Birthday Decoration (Red, 150)

u/Cpt_Tripps · 2 pointsr/LARP

> The more I look into LARPing the more I want to do it myself.

100% give it a try. It's a ton of fun.

> What kinds of LARPing do you think would be appropriate for this population?

Deck of cards, bunch of props out in the woods, and let your players venture out and look for treasure.

Deck of cards can handle combat. Combat is resolved by playing "War"

Props for treasure hunts can be cardboard pirate chests, plastic skulls, and acrylic vase filler.

> What specific materials would you suggest I ask for in my proposal?

Lots of people are going to link you tutorials on making larp safe weapons but that requires a lot of cutting with exacto blades and using industrial adhesives to build.

Try cardboard and hot glue. They won't hold up to players fighting with them but they can be made easily and decorated by your players.

If you want something simple that players can wack each other with go with pool noodles with a PVC pipe core and a bottle cap end to the PVC pipe. These won't last forever but will hold up long enough for players to get a few weeks use out of them. (They also only cost about $3 each to make.)

Shield tutorial Probably $15 of material.

Summer camp sword tutorial $3-5

> Do you have any suggestions for someone in my position?

Run this as a camp game don't go rules heavy or roleplay heavy. In my experience players with autism have a hard time dealing with "cheating" and them perceiving peoples actions as cheating. Larp is an imperfect game. You don't know everything an enemy player does and sometimes people forget rules on the fly.

u/LozNewman · 1 pointr/FATErpg

For dry-erasable cards I plastify a page with 4 lines of "O O Free Invokes, 0 Costs 1 Fate Point to Invoke" and cut them into page-quarter strips.

For Fate Points, I use vase pebbles. Light, colourful, nigh indestructible.

u/thedoctor___ · 1 pointr/KeyforgeGame

I picked this up at a dollar store locally for $1.25, They are great.

u/xystussenpai · 1 pointr/KeyforgeGame

Ah didn't think of that it's just called crush ice rocks little large but looks great

u/lumpthefoff · 1 pointr/tipofmytongue

You can just look up amazon for clear gel balls as others pointed out. I got this since you wanted to buy in bulk.

u/10ofClubs · 1 pointr/magicTCG
u/BludskarTheBrutal · 1 pointr/DungeonsAndDragons

Along with all the stuff they need (resources like character sheets, rules, setting info, etc.), depending on your budget:

Currency to act as starting gp, sp, etc.

Mana and health "potions" to drink during play.

Colored bags to match the dice.

Maybe a mini that matches their character if they have one already planned out.

Plastic "treasure", like this:

Pencils with...I dunno, dragons and stuff? Similar erasers?

Marbles, because why not.

u/SchroedingersHat · 1 pointr/interestingasfuck

The beads are about 1% some kind of polymer (frustratingly non-specific, but there are a bunch of different ones and I don't know which is the common one) which absorbs a bunch of water and about 99% water. The liquid is water. You could also theoretically do it with various combinations of plastic or glass beads and oil (you just need to match the refractive index).

Example of the beads usually called water beads, jelly beads or hydrogel beads:

u/fuckpigletsgethoney · 1 pointr/ECEProfessionals

Water and sand are the main staples. You can change out the accessories to keep their interest renewed for a long time. Some things we have done:

Adding soap to make bubbles
Measuring cups, funnels, pipettes, etc.
Sea animals and seashells
Materials to test for sinking and floating
Sponges and dishes from dramatic play center

Same measuring cups and funnels as above
Dinosaurs and/or dinosaur bones
Glass gems like these
Coins or other "treasure"

We also have used other materials like beans, rice, dried oats, etc. but they never seem to be as popular as water and sand.

u/1nky0ct0pus · 1 pointr/Rocks

These are man-made. They are decorative glass stones.
