It is getting to be about that time of year when people start to consider what they are going to do to decorate for the holidays. One of the best trends that have been around for years, actually since the mid-1800s, is using glass ornaments on trees. Glass ornaments are becoming more popular now as people realize just how much detail these little ornaments can give their tree.
They are Built to Last
Glass ornaments are not something that you purchase one year and then toss the next. These ornaments are built to last. It is not uncommon to find glass ornaments that were made in the early 1900’s today! That just shows how built to last they are, when they are taken care of.
They do Require Care
Since these are ornaments that are made from glass, they are not going to be something that you simply throw into a box and wait to use the next year. They do have to be packaged with care in order to be stored properly. This means:
- Wrapping each individual ornaments
- Placing these into a box that will not allow the ornaments to touch
- Ensuring that adequate staffing is in the box to prevent shifting
Also, you have to worry about where you are storing these as condensation is known to ruin these ornaments, resulting in paint peeling and other issues.
Hang with Care
When hanging these glass ornaments on your tree, you are going to want to do this with care. These should never be hung on the tips of the branches. If you do this, you are going to risk them falling. Instead, be sure that they are hanging at least mid-way on the branch and on a strong branch that can support the weight. This will help to prevent any accidents from these ornaments falling and hitting the floor.
They are Gorgeous
One of the main reasons that so many people are considering glass ornaments is that they are simply gorgeous. They have detail and reflect the light in a way that the plastic ornaments simply cannot compete with. They bring sophistication to many decor themes, which is what many people are trying to create.
For those who are still on the fence about glass ornaments, they will find that these are gorgeous and they cannot go wrong with them. While they may need a bit more care, this will pay off in the long run!
