I hung these ornaments with a tension rod and thin wire at varying lengths. 
I have many windows in my kitchen and it took me three to four hours to hang these.  I think it was worth it, though as I loved how it turned out.

I have been collecting vintage ornaments for many years now, and I have aquired quite a few.  The first year I was in my home, I chose to add a window treatment in my kitchen area with the ornaments.  It was a tedious job, but I think turned out great.  I have to thank Gretchen for the photos as I couldn't find mine.  As you can see in the pictures our yard was still a mess!

I had the same idea but I used clear bulbs with letters affixed. I LOVE your vintage collection. Very nice!
