Alternate Ornament Uses

Alternate Uses for Ornaments in Decorating

Most Christmas ornaments will spend their entire lifespan hanging on a tree. This is the main use of ornaments, and their intended purpose. But there is no reason to be restricted to the standard uses. Ornaments, particularly the traditional ball shaped ones, have potential for many other uses, both in and out of the holiday season.

A popular use for ornaments is as decoration for bowls, dishes, and vases. A series of ornaments, usually all the same color and finish, can fill the interior of these containers, giving a color accent to whatever place setting they are part of. The also could be used to create a napkin ring with a ribbon, for example, or spread in a potted plant’s base as visual additions.

Alternately, ornaments could be used as hanging decorations throughout the house. They could be strung with ribbon and put on the wall, perhaps running up the bannister of a house’s stairs, or lining the wall in a specific pattern. They could be tied into garland shapes with running thread or glued into a wreath. We offer a premade version of said wreath in the store, made of shatterproof ornaments in several colors and sizes.

Ornaments could be put together into specific shapes to create towers, imitation flower displays (perhaps with artificial leaves interspaced in the grouping), or other sorts of hanging or standing decorations. With their generic but immediately recognizable shape, Christmas ball ornaments have a great deal of versatility in what they can be matched with. And the wide variety of colorations, sizes, and finishes means that there is no end to the styles that can be imitated. These ideas are just scratching the surface, and even then only on a single style of ornament, so let your creative side flow!
