I had a collection of vintage keys that I made into ornaments by adhering them to a round wood circle, covered with a songsheet, for a backdrop.  It was a super easy craft and a fun way to use up some of my keys.

2.  Rustic Candy Cane Ornament tutorial.

A good way to use up an acorn collection is to make up miniature buckets to use as festive ornaments.  A little gold metallic paint to the acorns adds some holiday sparkle.
