Candle LED candle lamp and /or bird feeder for the yard...also could be used in a bathroom to hang and fill with pretties. I first saw these made  in a shop in downtown Dubuque, Iowa and always wanted to try making one. I wish I could remember the name of the shop to credit . The down town area there  has several interesting shops to see, if you ever visit  Dubuque.

Thanks, I will use this idea in my new consignment booth! I filled and beveled glass one with gold and white balls, (large size) and someone bought all the the balls from it.
I also had some of the balls on a brass stand and they left them alone. (Grins)

Oh well, Let's think what else we can use these for? Oh, I also used them in my photo here I sent in regarding cloches. They are great for a vintage look setting!

Many thanks for sharing your display and idea.
