Christmas ornaments, bells, "articulated" ornaments or "artificial ornaments", decorative objects, are all ornaments used to adorn Christmas trees. These ornaments are made by the following methods: weaved, blow molded, blow dried, molded or carved out of acrylic or other polystyrene. Each of these methods of manufacture provides a range of styles that will suit particular tastes. Some manufacturers produce a wide range of ornaments in one or two ways. Others will create a series of similar ornaments which may be "artistically" designed to reflect the individual character of their Christmas tree.
One of the most traditional ornaments used to dress up Christmas trees is the "articulated" ornaments. These ornaments are generally made from inexpensive ornaments which have been "artistically" created with metal, glass or wood. They are sometimes also covered with precious stones or gems. In some cases, an entire set of Christmas glass ornaments can be made from one piece of art. Examples of this include modern-day Christmastime Baubles and Christmastime Balloons.
Balloons are a type of Christmas ornaments. In addition to decorating Christmas trees, these unique ornaments are used as party favors and for decorations at various holiday celebrations. There are a number of different types of Christmastime balloon ornaments available such as the traditional red and green "balloon balls" which are traditionally tied around tree branches and hung from them.
Another type of Christmas ornaments are the Woolworth glass ornaments. Woolworth is the oldest known manufacturer of glass ornaments in Great Britain. These glass ornaments are a bit different than the ones you would purchase at the mall. Instead of being flat or rectangular, Woolworth glass ornaments are actually hand crafted masterfully by artisans in Great Britain. The artisans that make these hand crafted ornaments are called "wefts". Some of the most common ornaments produced by Woolworth are the following:
This category of Christmas ornaments represents the spirit of the holidays. You'll find that these beautiful glass ornaments are often displayed on the Christmas tree as well. When purchasing this type of ornament, you will want to purchase one that is made of high quality craftsmanship and has been carefully decorated to match the Christmas tree. Some of the more common glass ornaments that are displayed on Christmas trees are the following: the sleigh bells, cranyard cactus, Christmas star, mistletoe, Christmas star decoration, snowman and snowflakes. These ornaments can also be found in other holiday themes including the Nativity and the Star on top of the Christmas tree.
These ornaments are made from real antiques and are handmade in the United States and England. In addition to being a decorative item, Woolworth carries a variety of other Woolworth products that can be used to create keepsake ornaments. These ornaments include: the poinsettia, Christmas candle, white star, Christmas heart, Christmas stocking and the snowman. There are many other ornaments that are available for purchase. You can find them at your local woolworths as well as in other stores around the world such as Target, Walmart and Bed, Bath and Beyond.
