Another neat ornament idea!

Did anyone watch the Nate show this morning? He had a tree on there that just "popped!"

He took 3 shiny ball ornaments in red,(2 regular size, 1 smaller size I think) and hung them in a cluster group of three all over the tree.

I'm sure we all have a million of these collected from years back, and if I remember, I'm going to do this next year.

Much prettier than grape clusters and sprays. He also put regular ornaments on the tree too.

Beautiful and inexpensive!

Oakley, I did that last year with the swag over my window--makes the ornaments look like clusters of berries. We used to do that at the bank where I worked too. You will have to give it a try next year. TFS. Luvs

RE: Another neat ornament idea!

I have done the 'cluster' of balls for years to fill up gaps in the trees. Now with the bigger ornaments I have gotten out of the habit of doing it but do love the look - may have to do some again next year. Thanks for the reminder .....


RE: Another neat ornament idea!

Hmmm, I think I'll go in there now and do it! Can you tell I'm behind the times? lol

RE: Another neat ornament idea!

I have used Christmas balls like this on my garland and it is very pretty. The newer balls are harder to keep the tops attached I've found. I do like the fact that some of the new balls don't break when dropped tho.

Hope you will show us how you use yours.
