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!

Thank you Cheesy

Actually, I'm making him a custom dinosaur dig for Christmas where he gets to unearth big plastic dinosaurs (but not bones, he likes 'real' dinos, lmao). He's had the little cheap ones before and loved them but I'll be making one with layers of dirt, sand, rock etc with plaster of paris to make it 'real'. Cheesy

I'll post it on here when it's done.

oh my goodness i bet that is going to be super cute! i cant wait to see it! good luck!

A ha! Maybe something like this:

But I think I would end up wanting to paint the outside a nice winter scene! What do you think?

where did you get that from/how big are the individual balls?

You could string them and make something like a popcorn garland out of them?
i bet that would look great.
I hadn't thought about stringing them! Maybe like with fishing line? Good Idea! They are about as big as a dime, except they are a fully sphere. I got them from my fiances mom, who got them from her friends attic Smiley we have no idea what they were used for originally!

depending on you enthusiasm and patience you could glue each one to a wreath in a pattern? or a bulb?

I could put them IN one of those clear bulbs they have at the crafts store! Wonder how much they are going for these days...

couldnt you use those for practically anything instead of glitter? theyre a bit bigger im sure but itd still work nicely. you could cast some in resin like people do with sprinkles as well.

They are pretty thick since they are complete spheres. Probably like the size of the end of your pinky-(Ish!) I'd LOVE to start putting stuff in resin, haven't quite learned that skill yet tho Sad

I've tried glue gunning them onto something for a school project (as decorations) but they keep melting from the heat, so no more glue gunning them for me!

Thank you for all your ideas! You rock! <3

Anyone have any suggestions for these? They appear to be some sort of Styrofoam, and i would assume dipped in paint or something for the various colors. Very light, so I assume they are SUPPOSED to be fillers in a vase of some kind, but Im thinking I can make something super crafty AND Christmas-y out of them!




Thoughts and suggestions?! Those tubes are about a foot tall at least! So lots to use!

Thanks!
