    Wonder if these balls would shine and glitter if a light shines on them from outside?

    I have a bay window it would look great in, just need to figure out how to hang them?

      I also have a bay window so I'll use sticky Velcro and cut pieces about 3/4 or 1/2 inches and put string on it. For the garland I'll use small plastic peel and stick cup hooks ( dollar store for 8, 1.00$) good luck, hope my plan helps you...

      What about using tension rods? No jokes or drilling.

    • Jan Jan on Dec 10, 2016
      why not tie the string with the ornaments on to the curtain rod and thenwrap the garland around the curtain rod and this would cover the tied string.

    I love the way it looks !! Any ideas on how to add a light ,I like the idea from Joan Berniard ?

    • Jaime LaPlant Jaime LaPlant on Dec 01, 2018

      Hi Marcella! Lights sound like a great idea! I haven't tried lights. You could try hanging small fairy lights so they look like icicles. That is just the idea that popped into my head, but I'm sure there are lots of other ideas out there. Have a happy holiday!
