Why not get crafty and try them for your next party.

Step 2 : Cut a piece of thin ribbon to desired length, you may want to fit several globes on your ribbon or just one or two depending on where you hang them
Step 3: Place the end of the ribbon on top of the stack of discs. Using a sewing machine, sew the discs and riboon together down the centreline on top of the ribbon
