I was given a bunch of crafting supplies, including a ton of those large glass pendants. I'd say there's probably about 20 of them. I really don't want to make that many necklaces and would love some ideas!

Hmm, how about putting some pretty scrapbook paper on the back and using them around a frame or to make a mosaic tray or something?

How large are they?  

You could turn them into keychains, magnets, tree ornaments for next year.  You could use pictures of family, or whatever you happen to like and used them to make a small suncatcher or mobile, or as decorative dangles on a light fixture, or wall ornament.  You could use translucent paints or glass paints, or podge tissue paper on them and make suncatchers.  You could etch them with initials and make them into keychains again.  

One thing coming to my mind is to use them for family pictures in some way - either a map and demarcate where some family members live by gluing their pictures to the back of the glass and gluing it to the map.  Or have a large picture of someone, and on the frame, pictures of them at various ages, or something like that.

You could also use them to make labels for something - like gluing or etching the name of spices on or behind them and using a strong glue to glue onto a mason jar, or to make labels for drawers or cubbies or whatever.

Why not hang them from a lamp shade rim? Just use a needle & thread.
 Good luck!

Some kind of display in a window to catch the light. Smiley
