Displaying Christmas balls

Hi Guys,
I have a ton of Christmas balls. I'm only putting up one full size tree this year so I won't be using allot of them for that purpose. Last year I filled some bowls with them. I also decorated a couple of wreaths with them and scattered them around other decorations. Was wondering if anyone had any other ideas on what to do with these.
Thanks so much,

Susan

I have seen tinsel strung tightly with ornament balls hung at regular intervals along it as a window or cubicle decoration. The ball pulls the tinsel down into sort of a swag effect. Silver tinsel and shiny red glass balls looks elegant.

I do have one kind of ragady looking tree out front. Don't usually do anything with it cause the branches are pretty weak.

That's a neat idea, but if I did that I would have broken Christmas balls all over the place. The cats would totally mess around with them. hah hah.

For a change from putting them in bowls, you could put some greenery in baskets and then lay the ornaments on top? I also like the idea of hanging them from garland as an accent.
