I like the idea of creating a shape with wire (could be ANY shape) and filling in with beads for an ornament or pendant or other decoration - tutorial from Art Bead Scene - jewelry bits & bling (also could be handmade Christmas ornaments)

So you want something different for the holidays? Fill up balloons with water and add a bit of coloring. Pop the balloons once the water freezes. A cheap way to add some color to your yard without costing a fortune.
