You guys are so awesome!
I figured I should probably just SHOW you what they look like instead of trying to describe them (terribly!)
That is a normal size pen, btw
I tried stringing fishing line though them with a needle, but whatever the coating is they have on it, it doesnt seem to like to be punctured. I was going to try to make a garland with it (thank you for the idea!) but Ill just end up destroying more than I'll use.
I started putting up my christmas decorations this weekend, and they are looking an awful lot like the berries in some of my garland/decoration pieces. Maybe I'll try and use them for more of that, or like you said, maybe put them in a vase as decor!
Thank you all for your wonderful ideas!
