    Christmas Decorations Ideas!

    December 6, 2017

    Did you know that the first decorated trees were adorned with apples, white candy canes and pastries in the shape of stars, hearts and flowers. Glass baubles were first made in Lauscha, Germany, by Hans Greiner (1550-1609) who produced garlands of glass beads and tin  figures that could be hung on trees. The popularity of these decorations grew into the production of glass figures made by highly skilled artisans with clay molds.

    The artisans heated a glass tube over a flame, then inserted the tube into a clay mold, blowing the heated glass to expand into the shape of the mold. The original ornaments were only in the shape of fruits and nuts.

    After the glass cooled, a silver nitrate solution was swirled into it, a silvering technique developed in the 1850s by Justus von Liebig. After the nitrate solution dried, the ornament was hand-painted and topped with a cap and hook. I was a few months ago at a Christmas fair in  Northwestern Europe for decorations and i collected some ideas for you.

     

    P.S I always start to decorate my house at the very beginning of december because I love this time of the year so much and i just want to enjoy it longer.

    Enjoy

    Kiss you,
