It is so much more fun to make vintage-style Christmas ornaments with real vintage parts. This lovely glass pine cone ornament was made in Germany during the mid-20th century. It shows its age only in a patina that has darkened the white to more of an eggshell color. Covered with glitter, this sweet pine cone measures 3 inches long by 1-1/4 inch at the widest. The cap is silver as is the hanging loop.
Each of these ornaments was hand-blown and then hand finished with frosting and glitter, so there may be a very slight variation from one to the next.
Although elegant itself, it would make a terrific base for adding additional scraps, Dresdens and krausbouillion to make your own very special piece.
