Did You Know?

It is very fun to learn how to make ornaments like this one, but do you know how they got their start? The modern Christmas tree dates all the way back to the 15th and 16th century in Germany and then arrived in America in the 1700s. The first "ornaments" were actually apples; they were hung on trees in churches to symbolize the forbidden fruit. 

Since the tradition of decorating Christmas trees originated in Germany, there is no surprise that the first Christmas ornaments were made in Germany. In 1925, companies in Japan decided to join the ornament-making business and other countries soon followed. Then, in 1939, the light bulb company Corning started mass-producing glass ball ornaments using the same machine used to make light bulbs. 

In 1973, Hallmark introduced a set of 12 yarn ornaments and six glass ball ornaments as the first Hallmark Keepsake Ornament collection, and the ornament industry was forever changed. These collections were unique and only available for a limited time which was a first in the ornament business.

I have been eyeing this one for a while now and all I could think is there is now way I can do that. The older I get the better, so I'm and so going to give it a try. I will follow the directions step by step and use the pictures and hope mine come out as good. Crossing fingers here. Thank you so much for sharing this free christmas craft.

I totally agree Cheryl Y! I am a little intimidated by this one. I'm not used to working with beads. It does look like the tutorial is well written which is a plus! I think I'm putting it on my list to do mid-summer after I hit the after Christmas crafting sales and that way I won't feel as much pressure to get it done time-wise. It is a beautiful ornament!

These are just great and I want to make a bunch. I want to do them in many different colors and perhaps give them to my grand kids to give them to their teachers. It's much better than some store bought item that just says to teacher. Thank you so much for sharing this great design.

I made a few of these for my tree last Christmas in a couple different colors. They looked so elegant! This was definitely the #BestIdeaEver
