Any ideas?

We have tons of these sweet gum pods all over the yard. I just know they would be great for crafts. But the only crafty thing I can think of is to include them in pouppori of some sort. I'm want to make Christmas ornaments. Any great ideas? I'd love to hear them.

I'm coveting your gum balls. I don't really know what I would do with them either. Although one year for Christmas a young friend gave me an ornament made with one. She sprayed it silver, hot glued a hook to the top and then tied a bow with red ribbon at the place where the hook and the pod join. It is simple, but I really like it. Susan
