gum ball tree

My mil has a tree next door that drops off these little spiky balls, she says she thinks they are called gum balls? I saw in a magazine a few years ago someone had spray painted them gold and silver and put in a pretty clear glass bowl for Christmas decoration. I have been meaning to do this, we have thousands off this one tree-they only fall about every other year. Will have to check with her if this is the year for them. They are indestructible, you can roll over them with your car, lawn mower and they don't squish. Anyways, they would make a nice Christmas ornament or put in a bowl with maybe some cinnamon sticks, or a few pedals of potpouri.
