Bridal Tree Ornament Collection
Create a priceless gift of ornaments
to grace your newly-married daughter or son's first
This is a simple and easy gift that will become a lifetime treasure!
A German tradition dictates that a newlywed couple's
first Christmas tree should be decorated with 12 symbols
to ensure a happy and long-lasting marriage.
(joy and peace)
(hope and dreams)
Here's How To Do It:
Using 12 clear glass or colored glass balls, paint or decoupage one symbol on each ball.
Fabric or paper wrap a box that will be the keepsake holder.
Wrap each decorated glass ball in colored tissue to prevent breakage and to add color.
Add personalize message in your own handwriting on a card to be kept in the box.
Be sure to put the date on it.
Punch asmall hole in the corner of the card and add a ribbon or holiday decoration.
Place gently on top of the tissue-wrapped glass balls and cover with fabric or tissue covered lid.
Add a wide gross-grain ribbon around the box and tie a simple bow. (The gross-grain ribbon is sweet and can easily be tied and untied over the years.)
A simple and easy gift that will become a lifetime treasure!
