I have about 30-40 prisms that are 14" long. Any ideas what I can do with them, preferably something for the garden. Thanks.

I don't think I have seen prisms that long before.
I think a pretty top, with strings of beads and
and prisms at the bottom, would look great.

I would hang them from your porch, or trees. Use them in a wire-art creation. They would be beautiful any way you use them. I am green with envy. Please show us what you decide to do. Jlily

Marlene Kindred could send them to me!! Just kidding...I've never seen prisms that long. I think I would go crazy making suncatchers for the yard!

Cool ideas----thanks. We're remodeling and this was a chandelier that was hanging over the tub. I removed the prisms before it went in the dumpster and I'm so glad I did. I was also thinking, I have a bottle tree and I'm going to try hanging them from the branches and see how that looks. A lot of possibilities here, all I needed was a start. When I decide exactly what to do, I'll try and post a picture (I've never done that before).

I bet the prisms would add eye-catching sparkle to your bottle tree!

I have a small flowering crabapple tree that I adorned with chandelier crystals. They disappear from sight in the summer when the tree leafs out, but they look pretty in the winter and spring when the light catches them.

Suncatchers! Would make awesome suncatchers! In trees, in flowerbeds, potted flowers...deck railing, anything where the sun can catch it! Jeanne S.

I think they'd be useful to keep deer out of the garden, and possibly rabbits/woodchucks/etc, depending on where they hang!
