You could make the prettiest Christmas decorations with them. Just spray paint them gold or silver, tie them into units of 3 each and use them on wreaths or as tree ornaments, or even on packages.
My daughter makes them beautiful, and people are always wanting to buy them from her. She wishes she had a tree in her yard. They are hard to step on though, so you have to wear good shoes if you are collecting them.
