I don't have any ideas right now (except possibly covering a wall with them lined up side-by-side, but that may be a little "out there" lol) but I just want to remind everyone to cut them up if you plan to dispose of them. Birds and dolphins/other animals can get caught in them.

I trim them into ovals and crochet around them and make doorknob Christmas decorations from them.  I single crochet around, then crochet a rectangle about 10 or 12 inches long, decorate with small Christmas decorations, A baby mitten, tiny stocking, tiny Christmas tree, etc.  Everybody I know has them hanging all over their houses, mine, too.  You could also do all other holidays with Valentines, Shamrocks, Easter eggs, etc.

Well, if you have TONS, you could staple them together, attach them to some poles or wires, and then get a vine to grow all over them so it covers them and makes a sort of roof (over whatever you want).

Back in the 1970s I remember my grandma and mom spray painting them black and stapling them together to form star shapes, and they would become wrought iron-looking wall decor.  You could probably find directions in that era's women's magazines.

 But do cut them up if you dump them, so the birds and other animals don't get trapped in them.

you could find a way to to put multiple ones together and hang them some way you could use them to hold scarves, socks, fabric, ribbon, ties, ect... by putting them through the loop thingys

in the 80 we hung curtains with them you pulled fabric threw  as many holes as you wanted and made it poofy.With a swag of fabric in between ans some handing down on both sides of a window and you would hang it with a tack or cup hook. also I remember making dresses with a lot of them just the poofy all the way around.and if the fabric was not stiff enough you put plastic bags crumbled up or netting to make it stand out nice.
Hay it was the 80 did you see our hair, our houses were just as tacky.

For some reason all I can picture is some sort of fencing, like the kind used at construction sites. Maybe if you stapled a bunch together, you could use them for fencing around a garden or something.
