Hanging ornaments from ceilings is a clever way to decorate. So in my new kitchen, I decided that this would be the year to hang between the pendant lights. (Yes, the kitchen is almost finished. Trim, touch-up paint, baseboard to go!)

Another idea with ornaments is to decorate using them in different places around your house. Keeping my green theme in mind, I added them to decorating balls and a basket of Granny Smith apples.
