I "inherited" a bunch of this stuff... while I know its commonly/usually used for hemming, I'd love to make some sort of Christmas ornament with it or something for a creative reuse idea.

I also have a ton of denim.. denim and lace might be a winning combination as well.

Any ideas?!?!

you can gather one edge and roll up the lace to make roses.
cover a glass ornament or styrofoam ball
make a denim skirt with several rows of gathered lace at the hem (the hem tape is so narrow that you need to use several rows to balance out the weight of the denim)

tear strips of the denim and wash in the washer so they get all shredded.  Apply to a background fabric in rows, sewing through the center of the strips so the shredded edges flap free.  Maybe alternate with stripes of the gathered lace.  Make a jacket or tote bag from the resulting fabric.  Maybe sew it all together before you wash it, so you don't have to deal with the shredding in your machine.
