These tree ornaments are a solution to my family's dilemma of too many _____.

Can you guess what they are?






Closer view . . .





Still not sure?



Hint: 100% organic.

They appear to be a form of pod that falls to the ground, but I am not familiar with whatever it is they came from. They look really pretty on the tree, though. Neat idea...to give them back to nature for a while. And decorate at the same time. Quite lovely. The vines have me confused, too. On your last picture. Those look a bit like wild strawberry leaves, but your ornaments are not strawberries. Can you eat them?

Har, har. Looking again at your close-up...the right one in that photo reminds me of the back end of a bull.  Cheesy Silly Tina, behave yourself!  Roll Eyes Sorry.

OMGosh. Are they radishes? What ever it is the tree looks delightful and I'm glad you have ornaments that everyone can "enjoy".

If they are radish, they are the silliest ones I have ever seen. But yup, the vine/tops look a bit like the ones I have seen. I think you folks might have it nailed, there.

Too funny! In my part of the world, radishes grow in maj-june, so I wouldn't have thought of that. But the look very cute on the tree.

They are indeed radishes. This was the last crop and most of them were too tough to eat-- but they did make good unique ornaments for the outdoor tree.

I think that is so cool. Great imagination. That is so perfect for an outside tree and I love that tree. Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea. Wow! Hope to see that tree decorated next year. It's gonna be big.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Great idea! So pretty and resourceful. Are there any critters around that would eat them?
