We had to repair a glass flower chandelier which was broken by workers. The only flowers I found had to be ordered by lot of 100. What can I do with the extras? We only needed 25.

    Savannah....Maybe a wind chime...or are they too fragile?

    Use them at Christmas. They would look good sitting on top of the tree's branches or in a gathering of greens on a table, also on a garland/wreath or napkin rings.

    Hang them on a wall as an art installation.

    They would make a beautiful garden piece. Make a wire tree similar to the look of your chandelier. You would need a heavy enough gauge that wil allow you to bend it but still hold it's shape. Held together with rope or twine at the base, or if you know a welder that could weld them all together. Otherwise, you might be able to find such a frame online.

    These are beautiful!! I visualize a wire "Tree of Life" with these attached. You could spray the wire tree copper to match your chandelier or any metal color you like. It would be lovely if tiny fairy lights could be placed through the hole in each flower. The cord of the fairy lights could be sprayed to match the metal of the wire tree. These flowers would be exquisite on a beautiful metal wreath. You could glue glass beads over the holes.

    You could always make some sort of wreath with them if they aren’t too heavy. Or some sort of mosaic project or decorate the outside of a mirror... it could be a pretty border for something... 😊

    They are quite beautiful, arrange them in a large vase.
