Ed. Note: Today we welcome Kirsten from Simply Grove. She’s stopping by to fill you in on an alternative way to use your holiday ornaments.

I am such a sucker for traditions during the holiday season. But I also like to think outside of the box. Ornaments are such a fun item to inspire over. They are perfect accessories for the classic Christmas tree, but they can also be a great solution for other festive ideas.

One way to display glittery or shiny ornaments (like Nambé’s Bud and Spire ornaments) is to create an ornament chandelier. Group an assortment of ornaments, either identical or a variety, in a cluster over a table or seating arrangement.

Ornament Chandelier (Ish and Chi)

You have just created a sparkly focal point! Blogger Viv of Ish and Chi, created a silver ball masterpiece above her dining table. It’s the perfect compliment to her colorful centerpiece and dark wood furniture.

It’s fun thinking outside of the box. And holiday DIY never hurt the wallet.
