Think Beyond the Tree
Have fun as you discover the secret life of ornaments. Imagine the possibilities.

Tie an ornament with a brightly colored ribbon around the outside of pillar candles. This added touch makes them sparkle and shine even brighter. Go beyond fruit and berries, and use large and small ball ornaments to decorate a wreath. Personalize them with the names of each family member with a gold permanent marker. String small, glittery, round ornaments together with silver and gold beads to make a fun and festive necklace for the season or hang them from ribbon on your curtain rods to make a beautiful window treatment.

Ornaments add color and the spirit of the season to place settings for holiday brunches, desserts and gala gatherings. Use them as jazzy napkin rings, tie them on a bottle of wine and fill a glass vase with different colored glass ornaments for a centerpiece. Place them in flower arrangements or use them as name card holders.

Tuck several ornaments into your mantelpiece décor, or hang them from garlands draped over your fireplace or doorway. Hang an ornament from the rearview mirror of your car—"Deck the car with boughs of holly, fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la." There are so many delightful uses for these glittery beautiful pieces, so have fun as you use your imagination to create the holiday you imagine!
